    Car numbers on rear quarter panels

    I'm agnostic on the subject and not attached to the status quo. But oh boy, I know this won't be the most popular news leak of the day.

    MLB punishes the Astros for 2017 sign stealing as the NFL should have punished the Patriots

    instead of covering it up and destroying the evidence. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28476780/astros-jeff-luhnow-aj-hinch-fired-sign-stealing In short, MLB suspended both the Astros' GM Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch for the upcoming season, and the Astros in turn fired both. They...

    Dirt late models 2020

    The WoO late models season started tonight at Vado Speedway Park in NM. Brandon Sheppard has been dominant in this series of late, but will probably have more competition this year with a two-car Bloomquist team contesting the series with Chris Madden and Bloomquist as drivers. Madden wins the...

    World of Outlaws 2020

    The schedule has been released. There are some cool additions (Kokomo, I-70) and omissions (Placerville, Haubstadt put on great shows, but I won't miss Las Vegas or the Nashville experiment TBH).

    2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross

    Outdoor season is here starting at Hangtown tomorrow. Anyone have predictions about who will exceed (or fall short of) expectations this year? Tomac will be seeking a third straight MX title, but I do think competition will be somewhat stiffer this year. Here is the TV schedule. First motos...

    2019 NBA Playoffs

    I know there aren't a ton of NBA fans around here, but there were a couple of fine Game 7s today. You would think the Blazers win the league championship from how Portland is reacting. It's kinda cute. They haven't made it this far, to the conference finals, since 2000. In the East, the...

Glad to see this topic move away from the Deathbed thread, which opening always felt like walking through a puddle beneath a leaking sewer pipe. You'd try to skip over it, but sometimes it's too wide. Here's an article centering...

    Some great photos and history in this little feature. It's crazy that this happened at all.

    Missouri's legendary I-70 Speedway was set to re-open in 2019, but the county is trying to nix it

    I grew up in Kansas City. I-70 wasn't my home track. That would have been Lakeside. But I went there many times, both when it was a dirt track and pavement track in the '90s that hosted the Trucks a few tunes and other series like ASA. it is an historic venue known for it's super high banking...
