Chase Elliott beats Kyle Busch to earn $100,000 bounty
  by Pete McCole
Just call him Chase Elliot – Bounty Hunter. Elliott beat out one of the best in business Tuesday night after taking the checkered flag over Kyle Busch in the North Carolina Education Lottery 300 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway to notch his third-career truck series victory and collect not one, but two $50,000 bounties placed on Kyle Busch – earning Elliott a $100,000 bonus for charity
Kyle Busch wins in last lap Xfinity duel at Charlotte
  by Brandon Reed
Despite being held on the Charlotte Motor Speedway oval, Monday night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race had more twists and turns than the track’s infield road course layout. But in the end, there was no surprise in the winner, as Kyle Busch came back from a pit road speeding penalty to make a last lap pass on Austin Cindric for the victory.
Keselowski holds off Johnson to win Coca-Cola 600
  by Pete McCole
Chase Elliott had the Coke 600 won easily Sunday night but his Hendrick Chevy teammate William Byron brought out the caution with less than 3 laps to go. The #9 Chevy team made the call to pit for 4 tires for the shootout while Team Penske made the call for Brad Keselowski to stay out on worn tires for the 2-lap shootout and that was the right call as he was able to hold off Jimmie Johnson, who also did not stop for tires, by just 0.293s. Elliott fought his way back up to third on his new tires while Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch rounded out the top-5.
Superstar Fernando Alonso dominates virtual Indy 500

Two-time Formula 1 World Champion and esports newcomer Fernando Alonso dominated Torque Esports/Engine Media's (TSX-V: GAME) (OTCQB: MLLLF) The Race All-Star Series powered by ROKiT Phones Legends Trophy races today on the virtual version of the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Featuring an entry list with a total of 13 Indy 500 wins to their credit, Alonso not only triumphed in the opening race after chasing down pole winner Petter Solberg (former World Rally Champion), he had to hold off a hard-charging fellow ex-Formula 1 World Champion, Jenson Button.
Corvette Racing Chassis History: 1999-2004
  Looking back at Corvette C5-R GT1 era
Corvette Racing’s legacy in sports car racing dates back more than 20 years. The program’s decade of competition includes 107 race wins worldwide and multiple IMSA Manufacturer, Driver and Team championships since 1999. These accomplishments came in some of the most memorable and revered cars in all of road racing.  Today we offer this look back at the Corvette C5-R, Chevrolet’s first entry into modern factory racing. As the C5 did against its production-based competitors, the C5-R quickly established itself as a world-beater against some of the biggest names in endurance racing. 
Chase Briscoe Scores Bittersweet Darlington Victory
  by Brandon Reed
With the beating and the banging in the final 10 laps that probably had the fans at home on their feet, an emotional Chase Briscoe battled Kyle Busch to the line to capture the win in the Toyota 200 at Darlington Raceway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ first race back since the COVID-19 pandemic brought sports to a halt. The win was made all the more poignant for Briscoe by the personal emotions of the week, as he and his wife, Marissa, had shared on Wednesday they had learned the day before they lost the baby they were expecting to welcome late in the year.

Would Ferrari really come to IndyCar?
  What does IndyCar provide a global brand like Ferrari?
Like many IndyCar fans I am salivating at the prospect that Ferrari is eyeing IndyCar. It certainly would raise IndyCar's profile globally and possibly bring IndyCar that third engine supplier they have coveted. However, Ferrari is a global brand. It races in F1 because F1 is a global race series.  It races in sports cars because they race globally. But IndyCar is strictly a domestic brand that makes periodic feeble attempts to race globally and fails every time. Ferrari has admitted to looking at IndyCar for 2022? But why? We examine the topic in some detail.

The Indianapolis racing oval; 19 May, 2011: After some rainy days, the track finally begins to dry and 40 drivers get ready to tackle the 95th running of the Indy 500.
