It's no secret that the motorsports community has a long held tradition of community outreach and charitable efforts. This standard was continued recently with the opening of Seacrest Studios at the Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. Monica Palumbo reports on this initiative.
Some love him and honestly some can do without him. Either way the absence of Tony Stewart will have an impact on the sport. So, now what?
Mr. Excitement (Jimmy Spencer) takes this question on directly and answers your e-mail about who loses more with Tony Stewart not driving ... the fans or Tony?

This week we GIF It Up from the Pocono Raceway!
Poor Ricky Stenhouse.
Danica’s BF didn’t even make it through the first turn of the first lap at Pocono Raceway before he got hit by Juan Pablo Montoya and stuffed into the wall, which doubtless took the Zestfully clean smile off Stenhouse’s face. It was a cruel blow in what frankly hasn’t been a great season so far.Keep Reading...
Plenty of drivers have suffered through disappointing 2013 seasons, but none more than Denny Hamlin, who came into the season having never once missed the Chase for the Sprint Cup since going full-time in 2006.
Hamlin, who missed four weeks of the 2013 season with a fractured vertebra suffered in a last-lap crash at Auto Club Speedway with former teammate Joey Logano in March, had maintained all along that he would come back and make the Chase.
Guess what? Ain’t happening.
In his first two complete races back behind the wheel of the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, Hamlin finished second at Darlington and fourth in the Coca-Cola 600, both in May. Since then, though, his season has been awful.Keep Reading...

Dying to have a NASCAR logo on your headstone? Don't move to North Vernon, Indiana. Check out this headstone that a local church is refusing to install, claiming it doesn't meet the cemetery's standards. It's couch-shaped and includes images of a deer, a dog and the Indianapolis Colts and NASCAR logos. Shannon Carr spent almost $10,000 on the headstone to honor her late husband. Now that's what we call dedication to the sport.
