Logano And Martin Fates Continue To Be Linked

So, ironic much that Joey Logano bumped Mark Martin out of his way with a couple laps left to go Sunday at Pocono in order to get his first non-asterisk victory in the Sprint Cup Series? And how ironic was it that a slight bobble by the normally mistake-proof Martin, allowed Logano into position to [...]

TMS Girds Itself For Attack Of The Killer Cars

FORT WORTH, Texas – Tanner Foust’s relationship with his Global Rallycross Championship Ford Fiesta is a car-guy’s definition of love/hate.
“The cars are amazing performers,” said Foust, one of America’s most recognizable action sports stars. “They’re basically 2-liter, turbocharged engines that make about 600 horsepower with a restrictor. They’re all-wheel drive, go 0-to-60 in 1.9-seconds. They’re [...]

INDYCAR Again Digs Self Into A Dark Hole

The engines of the cars in this year’s darn-good Indianapolis 500 had barely cooled – well, except for the Lotus engines, which were thoroughly cooled after being black flagged for being, basically, lousy – when talk of an INDYCAR revolt began to surface.

The answer he gave was equally reasonable and equally [...]
