Joey Logano Donuts

So maybe Joey Logano isn’t in the same conversation with artists like Picasso or Monet, but believe it or not, he and his number 22 Pennzoil Ford Fusion can create art just about as good as anyone using more traditional artistic mediums. And that’s what you’re about to see here. Continue Reading »

A Street-Legal Aston Martin Vulcan Sounds Like the Best Idea

aston-martin-vulcan-1

What you see here is an Aston Martin Vulcan. And yeah, it is insanely cool. The track-only Aston Martin has an 800-horsepower V12 and isn’t certified to be anywhere on (or near, really) public roads. Actually, it’s even too powerful for GTE racing. But that first part could change if engineers really wanted it to. And they really want it to…if it means they’re going to sell even more of them.

The Golf TCR is VW’s Newest Track Weapon

VW-Golf-R-1

I seriously think that Volkswagen is out to make my brain explode. When I got into the new Golf R, I knew I had to own one. Then, after I had already bought my Golf R, the company–to everyone’s surprise–released the hotter Golf R400 for production. As such, I figured I’d have to trade my Golf R in. Now, after all that, Volkswagen has debuted another high-performance Golf to drive me wild with envy. What you see before you is the Golf TCR. I might need a moment to pick my jaw up off the floor.

Whether that’s through the crucible of motorsports, or driving it across mountain passes, people have always wondered, “How far can I push a car?” It’s that same question that pushed The Great Race organizers, Tom McRae and Norman Miller, to race pre-WWII cars across the US. And it’s the same question that fuels The Great Race participants to this day.
