Say Goodbye to 2014.  Motor racing's future is upon us
  by Brian C. Mackey
For the past several years, I've been one of many preaching about changes needed to revive motor racing's sagging popularity.  Unlike others however, I have stressed that the changes needed won't solely come from the more routine solutions that periodically arise from various sources.  Instead, the real changes of noteworthy distinction will be represented by the relevant use of now emerging technology.  As a marketer, I believe that motor racing's revitalization will rise from the doldrums through the fan's experience at a race event, my "events begets fans" philosophy more than any other single modification.
Send some good thoughts to Brian Vickers
  by Dave Grayson
In some very sad news, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Brian Vickers once again finds himself on the disabled list due to heart issues. It now appears that the driver of the Michael Waltrip Racing, (MWR), #55 Toyota will not be sitting behind the wheel of his ride during the early portion of the 2015 season. Further describing his latest medical situation, in a prepared statement released by MWR, Vickers said: "First, I want to thank everyone for their sincere support. I have faced obstacles before and it has made victory that much sweeter and I know that will be the case again.
Scenes from the Gulf 12 Hours at Yas Marina
  by Gary Parravani
A last minute safety car caused by a spin from the Kessel Racing Ferrari 458 GT3 of Jorge Lorenzo changed the face of the 2014 Gulf 12 Hours race. Michele Rugolo, driving the AF Corse Ferrari 458 GT3, made the best use of the lapped traffic following the restart with just 30 minutes remaining, to take the win by 3.058 seconds after 315 laps of racing at the Yas Marina Circuit. Our Gary Parravani was there to capture all the action.
The fallacy of IndyCar's shortened schedule
  by Brian Carroccio
Did they actually pay for such advice? That was my first thought 22 or so months ago after reading ideas of daredevil drivers and a 5 month IndyCar season in the leaked Boston Consulting Group internal review of INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 22 months ago. Well, they paid for it alright. Fast forward to December 15, 2014, with more than 100 days of the demented horror show concocted by the BCG and carried out by Hulman &Co. CEO Mark Miles behind us, it seems that they’re going to be paying for it at the corner of 16th and Georgetown for quite a while.
David Coulthard crowned Champion of Champions
  In Race of Champions
Multiple Formula 1 grand prix winner David Coulthard put in a stunning performance to eclipse 15 fellow stars of motor sport and win the Race Of Champions on a thrilling afternoon of action and entertainment at Bushy Park Barbados.

AR1 speaks with 2014 Pro Mazda Champion Pigot
  by Brian Carroccio
Following a championship season in Pro Mazda, it was announced last month that Spencer Pigot would be contesting the 2015 Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. Recently, AR1's Brian Carroccio caught up with the 21-year-old Orlando native. Amongst the topics covered were Pigot's journey up the American open wheel racing ladder, his 'do or die' weekend this past August in Sonoma and the goals going forward for one of the sport's more promising up and coming homegrown talents.

Kevin Harvick roasted then lauded in Vegas
  2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion celebration
The spot at the head table at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards was all Kevin Harvick's, with wife DeLana and 2-year-old son Keelan joining the Stewart-Haas Racing group in the celebration. The only problem was that host Jay Mohr had become accustomed to finding six-time champion Jimmie Johnson and Co. to his right, jokingly mistaking the Harvicks' identity. The jokes came fast and heavy in Friday night's awards gala at the Wynn Las Vegas with first-time champion Harvick not immune from Mohr's skewering.
World premiere of the FXX K hybrid track car
  at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Abu Dhabi
Ferrari's new FXX K research and development program receives its world premiere next weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The laboratory-car is based on Maranello's first hybrid model and will grace the world's tracks from next year onwards.

  by Dave Grayson

The champion's festivities marks the second time SHR earned a Las Vegas style celebration. Stewart himself won the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship at the conclusion of the 2011 season. However, there was one slight situation that was going to slow down Stewart's 2014 celebration just a little. He arrived at Las Vegas hanging on to a pair of crutches.
