By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The future is indeed now in the NASCAR Cup Series. Not because it’s the first-ever regular season race with the current car (known as NextGen), but it also saw another first-time winner in the Daytona 500. In just his eighth career Cup start, Austin Cindric brought Team Penske its third win in “The Great American Race.” While the No. 2 team celebrated, other drivers were either heartbroken or collected in wrecks that’ll prove costly to team’s due to the supply shortage of the current car.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer NASCAR went out of their element by having the Busch Light Clash outside of Daytona International Speedway. Instead, it was located at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum that saw at least 70% percent of the crowd witnessing their first-ever NASCAR race in person. When the dust settled, music performances were held and a whole lot of action exceeded people’s expectations. While some drivers morale were crushed due to accidents or reliability issues, only one man conquered LA and that was Joey Logano. Here’s my latest photoRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer It was quadruple championship weekend at Phoenix Raceway where the three NASCAR national touring divisions and ARCA West crowned its season champion. Needless to say, all four title-deciding races ended up being unforgettable. Here’s my latest “Race in Pictures” gallery featuring all four races as Kyle Larson (Cup), Daniel Hemric (Xfinity), Ben Rhodes (Trucks) and Jesse Love (ARCA West) left Arizona as champions.Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer All throughout last month’s 46th Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, the main focus was towards the three-man battle for the NTT IndyCar Series championship. It wasn’t the only storyline that took place as a slew of news occurred, notably Andretti Autosport signing Romain Grosjean to drive the No. 28 DHL Honda next season. While those were significant news stories, there was one angle I wanted to focus. That angle where I needed to challenge myself and provide a different outlook to the world of openRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The NTT IndyCar Series wrapped up its 2021 campaign with 46th Annual Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach last Sunday. Initially, the race was intended to be held in April but was postponed until late September, but what better race to cap off the 16-round odyssey than the sport’s biggest street circuit. When the dust settled, Andretti Autosport continued its dominance on the streets. Only this time, it was Colton Herta who owned the competition and went on to score his third win of the year.Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The NTT IndyCar Series made its return to the Pacific Northwest Sunday for the running of the Grand Prix of Portland.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The Inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in Nashville was the site of the 11th race of this season’s NTT IndyCar Series calendar. On a weekend plagued with cautions, Marcus Ericsson overcame a Lap 4 crash to win his second career IndyCar victory in as many races.

By David Morgan, Associate Editor Of all the wins Jimmie Johnson was able to accrue during his illustrious NASCAR Cup Series career, one type of track eluded him for so long – road courses. Despite his impressive resume, winning a road course race would take some help to finally make the long-awaited trip to victory lane. Enter the 2010 running of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. Johnson would start on the outside of the front row and led 48 of the first 57 laps, but as the race playedRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor A decade ago, Dover International Speedway showed its true colors in the late stages of the 2011 running of the NASCAR Xfinity Series 5-Hour Energy 200, leading to one of the craziest crashes seen at the one-mile concrete oval. As the laps wound down, Carl Edwards seemed to have the race in the bag, holding a steady lead over the other dominant driver of the day, Joey Logano. That is until Michael Annett spun out on the frontstretch with three laps to go, pushing the raceRead More
