NASCAR Talladega Race Ends In Two Spectacular Wrecks, Per Usual

nascar-talladega-wreck

Whenever you’re watching a race at a track like Daytona or Talladega, really the only part you need to see is the ending; anticipation of ‘the big one’. In typical Talladega fashion, yesterday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race ended in two huge crashes, and one very lucky winner in Brad Keselowski. Continue Reading »

2016 Camaro SS vs Grand Cherokee SRT: Can Jeep Hang Tough?

camaro-vs-jeep

Put a Camaro SS up against a Ford Mustang GT, or a Dodge Challenger SRT, and those would both be pretty amicable races. Similar horsepower, weight, and performance out of the box. But put the Camaro SS up against a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and that’s when things get weird. Continue Reading »

A Viper, A Track, and the Racing Spirit of Bob Bondurant

The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, Ariz. is now "The Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge/SRT"

“Left, right, left—gun it!” All 645 horsepower roared from underneath the hood of the track-focused Viper GT I was driving. Mumbling to myself, trying to remember everything I had been taught just a few hours earlier. The rugged Tarmac bounced the car up and down like it was riding on jello, my foot 3/4 of the way down, trying to get to 100 before having to slam the brakes and quickly pitch it into a right turn.

koenigsegg-agera-nurburgring

When you have a 1,341-horsepower vehicle like the Agera One:1 on hand, it seems like the only logical place you should take it would be the famed Nurburgring. But since the track restricted speed limits a few months ago, Koenigsegg hasn’t been able to take its monster megacar anywhere near the Green Hell…until now. Continue Reading »

Watch a McLaren P1 Take on a McLaren 650S on the Drag Strip

mclaren-p1-drag-race

P1 and 650S are two of the most recognizable names in the McLaren lineup. Ok, really, they’re two out of just four names in the McLaren lineup, but that doesn’t make these two supercars any less potent. Continue Reading »

This 2,500HP Nissan GT-R Eats Drag Strips For Breakfast

Alpha-G-Nissan-GT-R-by-AMS-1

Three and a half Hellcats. That’s how I’m choosing to measure the power output of the Alpha G built by the nutters over at AMS Performance. Their take on a Nissan GT-R packs 2500+hp, which is 3.5x as much as an SRT Hellcat, or 4.5x as much as a stock R35 Nissan GT-R. Having driven both of those vehicles, and driven them flat out, I have to say that it’s impossible to wrap my head around just how fast the Alpha G is. Continue Reading »

civic-coupe-grc

The all-new Honda Civic Coupe is barely off the production line, but already it’s going racing. Not that we’re complaining or anything—it pumps out 600 horsepower and is one of the baddest looking Global Rallycross cars we’ve seen in a long time. It debuted just a few hours ago at the New York Auto Show, and already it’s turning heads. Continue Reading »
