Story by Norman Garrett • Photos as Credited Broken cars whisper to me. I’ve owned some 60-odd cars in my life, and fully half of them did not run when I bought them. Of course, most of them were European sports cars from the ’60s and ’70s, so they had died of self-inflicted wounds due to poor build quality, poor materials, poor design, or the like. These cars would call to me from behind garages and under trees in backyards all over the South, and unless they were hopelessly terminal, I would generally answer their cries for help. The modern era has provided the ultimate enabler in the form of the internet: I have taken to searching eBay and local Craigslists using “projects,” “broken” and “dead” as my search keywords, with great results. Imagine my joy, … [Read more...] about Ran When Wrecked: How to Save a Totaled Car

The 2018 Formula One season has so far been filled with unpredictability and littered with dramatic races. Coming into this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix we are five races down, so now have a decent idea of the teams' and drivers' strengths and weaknesses. With that, we present our first mid-season driver ratings (a half-term report if you will), rating all 20 of the field from A to F. On the report card are their total points and placing, points per finish, how they fare in the qualifying battle versus their team-mate and an overall grade. Some of the field definitely deserve an A for effort, while others have underachieved, disappointing themselves and their teams. There have definitely been a few instances of drivers needed to go and sit in the corner and think about what they've done. Who is the straight-A student? Who must try harder? And who needs to do their homework? Mercedes Lewis Hamilton It was a difficult start to the season for the current world … [Read more...] about F1 driver report card: five races in, who is a straight-A student and who needs to try harder?

After 204 laps, the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway was postponed to Monday afternoon due to rain. The next day, fans were treated to an entertaining short track showdown as Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson battled for the victory; by the end, Busch was victorious. As Monday loomed, so did the threat of snow and sleet. The track was plagued by more weather concerns, though NASCAR was able to get the race started under caution. Various drivers elected to pit, though Larson – who was the leader when the race was red-flagged on Sunday – stayed out. Larson remained in first as the green flag waved to resume the race, building a lead as high as 2.5 seconds until Brad Keselowski caught up to him. Keselowski, who won the first stage, applied the bump-and-run tactic to pass Larson with seven laps to go. As Larson had not pitted since lap 121, his older tires could not keep up with the fresher set of the #2, allowing Keselowski to win the … [Read more...] about Kyles duel in Monday race, Busch wins Food City 500
