By Adam Tate, Associate Editor The British Grand Prix had it all, from spins, crashes and controversy, to a knock down, drag out fight for the win between Ferrari and Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton’s dream of sixth British Grand Prix victory and his fifth in a row was immediately ruined by a poor start and a spin after contact from Kimi Raikkonen sent him all the way to the back of the field on the opening lap, but his fight back to second place and the battles up and down the fieldRead More
By Adam Tate, Associate Editor Nigel Mansell, known by the British people as “Our Nige” was Britain’s premier F1 driver of the 1980’s and early 1990’s, but unlike modern star Lewis Hamilton, Mansell always seemed to just miss out. He finished second in the world championship three times before finally sealing the deal with Williams in 1992, then hoping the Atlantic to claim the IndyCar championship on his very first try. Mansell was beloved to his fans and known as the people’s champion for his humble roots and fighting spirit. NowhereRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor With an aggressive on-track persona, Jimmy Spencer was given the nickname of “Mr. Excitement” early in his racing career, but it wasn’t until the 1994 Pepsi 400 at Daytona that he really lived up to it. Entering the Independence Day classic, four drivers had been the class of the field all season long, with Ernie Irvan leading the way ahead of Dale Earnhardt, Rusty Wallace, and Mark Martin, but by the time the checkered flag flew, it was Spencer who stole the show. Earnhardt and LoyRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor These days, Jimmie Johnson is known as a seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion driving for Hendrick Motorsports, but back in the early 2000’s, Johnson was a relative unknown driving for Herzog Motorsports trying to make a name for himself. That all changed at Chicagoland Speedway in July 2001 with the running of the Hills Brothers Coffee 300. Prior to the 2001 season, Johnson was best known for his crash at Watkins Glen in 2000 after he lost his brakes heading into Turn 1, whichRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor Throughout his NASCAR career, Robby Gordon was never one to shy away from controversy and in June 2003 at Sonoma Raceway, his path to victory included a bit of controversy and a stellar battle with Jeff Gordon to see who would take home the trophy. Robby Gordon, who last won on the Cup Series circuit back in November 2001 at New Hampshire, was one of the most feared drivers when it came to road course racing as he always found himself in the mix for theRead More

By Adam Tate, Associate Editor IndyCar has struggled to get the balance right at Texas Motor Speedway since the advent of the DW12 six years ago. Races have alternated from frenetic pack racing to strung out fields with little passing. Last year’s race was the most intense and out of control I’ve ever personally witnessed after years of enjoying IndyCar at TMS. With the arrival of the universal aerokit for 2018, expectations were high that IndyCar might finally rediscover their mojo on the high banked 1.5 mile oval. Yet after practiceRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor There are times when Cup Series regulars ruin the show by dropping down into the lower tiers, but sometimes they create a moment that is remembered for years to come. In this week’s “Throwback Thursday Theater”, we take a jump back to the 2006 Carfax 250 at Michigan that seemed to be another run of the mill race at the two-mile track until the action picked up with the closing laps and post-race activities. Through the first 95 laps, Kurt Busch and Carl Edwards had beenRead More
