WRECK OF THE WEEK: GIRLS MUD WRESTLING

The Sprint Cup Series has experienced quite a bit of rain this season. This Wreck of the Week serves as a reminder that precipitation does not have to kill your good time. In fact, rain can guarantee that a good time is had by all. With a little rain, a little dirt, a lot of alcohol and a few willing women, a soggy day at the races can be transformed into a wild Muddy Gras. (I just made that up.) According to YouTuber kalamazooracing, this took place two years ago in Brooklyn, Mich., home of ...

MODIFYING THE CAR OF TOMORROW

Dale Earnhardt Jr. lent his voice to a growing chorus last week when he suggested that NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow needs to change.  Junior is right on the money.  The new car has made racing safer, which is great, but it has made for some snooze-inducing racing as well.  Here are five modifications that would turn fuel-strategy-sleepers into Ricky Craven vs. Kurt Busch photo finish nail-biters.  1. Robot copilotWhat if David Reutimann had an R2 unit to repair his car mid-ra ...

FUNNY NASCAR AUCTIONS

One of the best things about the Internet, if you're a NASCAR fan, is that you can use it to find any piece of merchandise you want.  If you want a complete set of 1991 Maxx race cards or a die-cast replica of your favorite driver's car, all you have to do is go to eBay and search.  However, there are some items up for auction that make me wonder about any buyer's sanity.  I have gathered some of the strangest below.   TrackVac Robotic VacuumNothing goes together like ...

KID PARALLEL PARKS LIKE A PRO

To every Sprint Cup driver who has ever missed his pit box - I am looking in your direction, Dale Earnhardt Jr. - I offer up this excellent video of a boy parallel parking his toy car.

LOLNASCAR: WHOSE SHOW IS IT?

On Saturday Brian Vickers shrugged off Kyle Busch's criticism of his tactics during the Nationwide race, saying, "Last I checked, it's not the Kyle Busch show." On Sunday Vickers put on a show of his own and on Monday the kids over at LOLnascar gave Vickers his due. Also, I think this pretty much sums up things for Carl Edwards this season:Related links:'Mikey' Katharine GallagherGuitar heroStaring contestFind me lucky charmsDouble-file dolphin restartsI must break youNASCAR LOLZ ...

HITLER MISSES CHASE FOR THE CUP: TAKE 2

Let's try this again. Last week I posted a parody of the movie Downfall in which Hitler goes bonkers after his Sprint Cup team fails to make the Chase. What I did not realize was that, in order to read the subtitles that are the funniest part of the video, you need to hit play, then hit the "Turn on Captions" button on the bottom right-hand side of the video. I already had the captions activated, but most readers did not. (Thanks to Screen Junkies for pointing this out.) After learning ...

BAD NASCAR TATTOOS

According to my Uncle Dennis, who acquired his tattoos while on shore leave during the Vietnam War, nobody ever got a tattoo while sober. I believe Uncle Dennis's words still ring true today - especially when it comes to the fans who got the NASCAR tattoos pictured below. NASCAR Tattoo Disaster #1: Primary ColorsAnyone who knows anything about NASCAR knows most drivers go ride-hopping every five or six years - some more frequently depending on how much they suck.  With the exceptions of ...

NASCAR MERCHANDISING FAIL

Years ago, there were only three kinds of NASCAR collectibles on the market: die-cast cars, trading cards and model kits.  Mentally stable fans don't need, and usually can't afford, more than that, but when NASCAR really started to gain momentum in the mid-1990s, everything changed for the worse.  The market went from NASCAR collectibles to branding every conceivable product with NASCAR and/or driver images.  Just take a look at some of the products below:  EPIC Yuletide F ...
