Formula One: U.S. Grand Prix Preview
  by Brian Carroccio
It's something of an odd paring to say the least. But after decades of showcasing itself stateside in casino parking lot, a clumsy infield road course, a few less-than-optimal downtown city street venues (one of which was said to be outdrawn by an ostrich festival on the same day), or simply bothering to not visit at all, it seems Formula One may have found itself a home in America.

Gordon's Drive-For-Five very much alive
  by Dave Grayson
For more than a few years now, four time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon has been laying the ground work for that fifth championship ring. It's a campaign that the Hendrick Motorsports driver has referred to as the "Drive For Five." Jeff Gordon fans have every reason to be excited. Going into next weekend's race at the Texas Motor Speedway, Gordon's championship hopes appears to be very promising. The "Drive For Five" is very much alive.
Leading scientists describe future auto propulsion
  Can you say electric!
By 2050, most vehicles will need to be electrically propelled, with a battery to store energy or an on-board hydrogen fuel cell to generate electricity, if emission targets set by governments are to be met. That's the conclusion of an expert team responsible for penning Towards Sustainable Road Transport published by Elsevier. The three authors are senior research chemists who have spent their professional careers working in the fields of energy and electrochemistry. More than 300 pages packed with information describe the growth and technical development of road vehicles during the 20th century, and the state-of-the-art power sources and advanced vehicle designs now needed to meet the 80 per cent reduction required in global emissions over the next 35 years, and needed to protect the next generation.
F1 and NASCAR ramblings....
  by Brian Carroccio
This past week, it was revealed both the Caterham and Marussia Formula One teams would not race in this coming weekend's United States Grand Prix. It should be said that an in-depth analysis of the situations would reveal circumstances unique to each party. However, as unfortunate stories of complicated ownership structures, nine-figure debt tallies, constant buyout rumors and lap times five seconds off the pace both share much in common.
Earnhardt Jr. isn't quite done yet
  by Dave Grayson
Considered a serious favorite to win the 2014 NASCAR Chase For The Championship, we all witnessed the disappointing chain of events that led to NASCAR's popular driver's surprising elimination following round two of the championship run. It began with a blown tire and a hard crash into the wall at Kansas. This was followed by a broken shifter at Charlotte that led to yet another poor finish. At the Talladega race, Earnhardt was one of a small group of drivers who had to go all in for the win to remain in the championship hunt.
