RCR-Superlite Coupe. Best described as a Group C car from 10 years ago this
thing is a beast. LS7 motor, GT40 tranny, all aluminum frame, 2000lbs,
660HP. I mean if that doesn't turn you on a bit you may not have a pulse.
Hate him all ya want. Still a human beeing doing what he loved!
Please show more respect?
And he died of a basilar skull fracture.
He cracked the base of the skull leaking cerebral fluid. That alone isn't
an instant kill, but he also broke his neck in addition, so . . .
Use seatbelts! and HANS devices
Tim Richmond remembered by his friends
First we see Tim in the #27 being hounded by earnhardt's 3 at Bristol, then
a little shtick by Tim......then the announcement of his death and some
remembrance of an incredible talent. An athlete dying young. Had life
treated him a little differently his talent would have been talked about
today in the same breath as the best in the world. Who ran faster? Holberts 962 Porsche or Richmonds
nascar Chevie? Listen to Rick Hendrick.
Oh yeah. Chip the hypocrite Williams shows up. Not surprising he was
Dale's Crash part 2, including onboard camera view
Dale's last ride, including the onboard camera view, which I believe is not
shown anymore. Unfortunately, since there has been so much childish
bickering, swearing and name calling, I've disabled the ability to leave
comments, which is not something I like to do.
Tony Stewart / Lewis Hamilton "Seat-Swap"
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- NASCAR Cup star Tony Stewart and Formula One standout
Lewis Hamilton have finished their car swap at Watkins Glen International.
After both drivers took warmup laps in their own cars Tuesday, Hamilton
hopped in Stewart's familiar No. 14, spun the tires as he left pit road,
and turned six laps over the 3.4-mile long course on rain tires. The track
was slowly drying after a morning rain. When he was finished, Hamilton did
an impressive burnout as the fans roared their approval.
Stewart then got into the McLaren Mercedes MP4-23 that Hamilton drove to
the 2009 F1 title, and after slowly leaving the pits began an impressive
Stewart turned a fast lap of 1 minute, 42 seconds on rain tires in
Hamilton, who had never been to the track, was first to go out and drove
only two laps in his car, making it around in 1:50 in a drizzle on a wet
The track record for the long course is 1:28.597 at 136.935 m.p.h., set by
IndyCar's Ryan Briscoe in 2009.
Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Infineon 6.26.11
SONOMA, Calif. Kurt Busch checked a number of things off his personal
to-do list Sunday with his victory in the Toyota Save Mart 350 at Infineon
Busch won for the first time on a road course in the Sprint Cup series.
He ended a 38-race winless streak which dated back to the 2010 Coca-Cola
And, he beat runner-up Jeff Gordon, who apologized to several drivers for
his rough racing here last year but — pointedly — did not apologize to
Busch who said this week he felt slighted after Gordon wrecked him last
"To win a road course race and to beat him, he's one of the best and always
will be," Busch said. "To get a road course race is a big check mark in my
Busch dominated the race, leading 76 of the 110 laps, while operating on a
pit strategy that required only two fuel stops. After starting 11th, Busch
had the lead by lap 13 and clearly had the best car in a race that featured
a handful of dust-ups between drivers.
Cup points leader Carl Edwards was third and Clint Bowyer finished fourth
in front of about 93,000.
The big drama was between Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers, who tangled twice
with Vickers putting Stewart into a pile of tires late in the race in
retribution for an earlier spin caused by Stewart. There were others,
including a couple involving Juan Pablo Montoya.
After the race, though, the Busch-Gordon incident last year — and how
they handled it this year — added another element to a sometimes fiery
afternoon. Gordon made a point of stopping by Victory Lane to congratulate
Busch on his 23rd career win but there was no apology coming. Gordon said
he felt Busch had run him off the track earlier in the race last year.

Bizarre NASCAR Finish~ Road America 6.25.11
Reed Sorenson claimed his first Nationwide Series win in nearly four years
after prevailing in a very confusing finish in Saturday's Bucyrus 200 at
The race featured three green-white-checkered attempts for several wrecks
in the closing laps. Sorenson's Turner Motorsports teammate, Justin
Allgaier, held the lead on the final lap, but after the caution flag waved
for an incident involving Aric Almirola, Allgaier ran out of fuel and
stalled on the lengthy 4.048-mile road course.
Ron Fellows then passed Sorenson, and it appeared at first that Fellows
took the lead. But NASCAR reviewed the finish until several minutes after
the conclusion of the race. NASCAR determined Fellows moved ahead of
Sorenson when the yellow flag was in sight, and therefore, awarded the
victory to Sorenson.
It was Sorenson's fourth career win in the series but his first since July
2007 at Gateway International Raceway.
"I knew it was going to be close on gas for all of us, and I was just able
to make it at the end," Sorenson said. "We had a good car all day, but not
a winning car, but good enough to make it at the end."
Michael McDowell dominated most of the race and led in the closing laps
before an accident involving newcomer Doug Harrington forced the first
two-lap overtime attempt.
After the first of the three green-white-checkered restarts, Jacques
Villeneuve, driving the No.22 Dodge in place of Brad Keselowski, dove to
the inside of the track and made contact with Brian Scott. Villeneuve then
bumped into Max Papis and sent Papis into the gravel before he hit the
During the second g-w-c attempt, Allgaier chased down McDowell for the
lead. McDowell overshot one of the corners, allowing Allgaier to slip by
and take the lead for the first time in the race.
After McDowell ran off course, a three-car wreck involving Steve Wallace,
Eric McClure and Alex Kennedy set up the third and final overtime finish.
"I thought we had won it," said Allgaier, who ended up finishing 19th.
"When the caution came out, I was pretty sure we had won it, but we ran out
Fellows finished second in this race for the second year in a row.
Villeneuve bounced back from a penalty midway through the race to finish
third. NASCAR penalized Villeneuve after he changed his lane prior to a
restart. He was running second to McDowell at the time.
When the race ended, Papis pulled up next to Villeneuve on pit road to
express his displeasure. Papis finished two laps down in 23rd.
