The NHRA Countdown starts this weekend and that means that ten Funny Car teams have a chance to win the 2011 NHRA Full Throttle Funny Car Championship. Robert Hight and his Auto Club Ford Mustang proved in 2009 that once you are in it, you can win it, racing from the No 10 spot to his first NHRA Funny Car championship.
Last year Hight also proved that just because you dominate in the regular season, past performance does not guarantee future success as the four-time… Continue

When was the last time you sat back, and looked around at the world that we live in today, and at the same time reflected on just how far we have come in this high-tech society that we live in?
How many different areas in your own lives has the new age world of computers, digital gizmos, and all of the electronic wizardry taken over your everyday life?
Some of the different changes probably had a really big impact, and of course there were those that…

A legend was born on April 29, 1951. A NASCAR legend to some, but yet to his family he was a son, father, brother, and also a husband.
With a twinkle in his eye, and a devilish grin on his face, Dale Earnhardt Sr. pushed and shoved his way into NASCAR superstardom.
His highly aggressive driving style made him a fan favorite, which was how he earned his nicknames, “Old Iron Head,” “The Man in Black,” and of course the most…

Short track racing as we know today is dying a very slow death, and with that it’s not hard to look around and see how many of them have closed their gates in the last five to 10 years. At one time they were the backbone, as well as the places where some of NASCAR’s top name drivers built their racing careers on.
On any given weekend it wasn’t uncommon to walk through the turnstiles and if you weren’t there early enough, finding a few empty seats together was about as hard as driving… Continue

The year was 1985, and school was just about to let out for summer vacation, a time of the year that all young people have always looked forward to.

Beneath the array of the brightly colored paint schemes, one would think they just woke up in the middle of some far away garden oasis. Colors are so vivid and full of explosive vibrancy that it makes even the Rose Parade look like a black and white picture.

Most of us might remember when growing up the story of the “The Emperors New Clothes.” To loosely paraphrase the fable, there was an emperor who simply adored beautiful clothes, and he would go through great lengths along with spending huge amounts of money to make sure he had the best wardrobe that anyone could ever set their eyes upon.
His passion for having the best wardrobe probably overshadowed some his decision making, and… Continue

The last noise a race car driver ever wants to hear when his mind is focused on maneuvering around his favorite track, is the deafening screech of tires, followed by the impact of the car exploding against a retaining wall or tire and foam attenuator.
After the initial impact, there is usually an eerie moment of silence from the fans as the driver slowly gathers his thoughts, while wondering if… Continue

Every 10-30 years, a young driver comes along who shakes up the NASCAR world, and more time than naught, it’s usually these types of drivers that come into the sport with some kind of a racing background.
Tim Richmond was a lot different since he did not grow up with racing in his blood, and did not come from the hard working middle class lifestyle that most of NASCAR’s big names came from. Instead Richmond was born into wealth,… Continue
