NASCAR Nationwide Series at New Hampshire 2014: Live Leaderboard Updates

Brad Keselowski became the first pole sitter to win a Nationwide Series race in 2014 with his dominant run at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 22 car won the Sta-Green 200 after taking the lead from Kyle Busch early on in the race. Keselowski led 153 of the 200 laps, and he was able to avoid some lapped traffic on the closing laps, to avoid the late push from Busch. Busch held the lead for 34 laps, but he was unable to catch Keselowski from his second-place position. Matt Kenseth, Kyle Larson and Chris Buescher completed the top five during the 17th race of the season.   Follow Joe on Twitter, @JTansey90.Read more Motorsports news on BleacherReport.com...

NASCAR at New Hampshire 2014: Start Time, Lineup, TV Schedule and More

On the heels of a wild race at Daytona, there is no telling what might happen at Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301 from New Hampshire as NASCAR's best drivers vie for a spot in the Chase. There are just eight races remaining prior to the commencement of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. A victory guarantees a Chase berth for all intents and purposes, with 11 different drivers having won thus far. Aric Almirola became the 11th in a rain-shortened race last week, which should give some of the middling teams belief moving forward. With that said, New Hampshire generally isn't as unpredictable as the superspeedways. Eight active drivers have multiple wins at New Hampshire, which is a symbol of dominance as well as parity among them. Chase-qualifi...

MotoGP Grand Prix of Germany 2014: Race Schedule, Live Stream and Top Riders

Marc Marquez has thus far been unbeatable in the 2014 MotoGP season, and there is very little to suggest he will not stretch his winning streak to nine consecutive grands prix in Germany on Sunday. Last time out in Assen, a rain-affected race was won easily by the Spaniard. He has taken victory in his last four visits to Germany's Sachsenring across three different classes, including last year's MotoGP win at the track. The 21-year-old Honda driver currently sits a massive 72 points clear of Valentino Rossi and teammate Dani Pedrosa—tied on 128 points in second—both of whom will finally be looking to make some ground on the standings leader this weekend. Read on for a full race schedule, live streaming information and a loo...

NASCAR Truck Series at Iowa 2014 Results: Winner, Standings and Reaction

The NASCAR Truck Series roared on at Iowa Speedway with a victory for Erik Jones in the No. 51 Toyota in the American Ethanol 200.  Iowa Speedway tweeted out the result: The victory was the second consecutive one in the series for the No. 51 car. Kyle Busch manned the wheel on June 26 in the UNOH 225.  While the 18-year-old may have been driving the much more experienced driver's truck, that shouldn't take away from an incredible performance. Jeff Gluck of USA Today noted the standout's winning ways early on in his career: Finding the winner's circle wasn't easy for Jones. But it was a dominant performance turned in by the KBM team driver. With 48 laps to go in the race, Jones had already set a personal best in laps led, per NAS...

NASCAR at New Hampshire 2014 Results: Race Order, Final Times, Twitter Reaction

Kyle Busch's pursuit of a second checkered flag in the Sprint Cup circuit received a major boost on Friday. At the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, he won his second pole of the year, setting a track record in the process: According to NASCAR Stats, Busch topped out at 138.130 miles per hour. It's the 13th time that a driver has rewritten the record books in qualifying: He praised his pit crew on Twitter for a job well done: Winning the pole at New Hampshire is very advantageous. Five drivers have gone from pole-sitter to victor, which is the highest total of any position at the track. Busch isn't desperately seeking a win on Sunday, but it would go a long way toward securing a place in the final Chase for the Sprint Cup. Under NASCAR's Cha...

NASCAR at New Hampshire 2014 Qualifying Results: Live Leaderboard Updates

Kyle Busch needed just two trips out on the track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Friday to lock up the pole for Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301. Busch took just one drive during the opening qualifying round, then one more in the final round to get his second pole of the season. He also had the pole at Martinsville.

Susie Wolff’s Silverstone Cameo: Story Behind Her Test and What It Means for F1

At the British Grand Prix, Susie Wolff added another chapter to the history of women in Formula One. When she left the pit lane in the first free practice session, she became the first female driver to take part in a grand prix weekend since Giovanna Amati in 1992. Unfortunately, the chapter she added—like the book itself—turned out to be a short one. Wolff, then known as Susie Stoddart, began racing at a very young age, starting off in karting at the age of eight. She spent a decade in the karting world, progressing to the Formula A World Championships. She didn't win it, but in 2000 she was named the No.1 female kart driver in the world. From there she progressed to proper single-seaters, entering the Formula Renault UK champi...

Germany’s 7-1 Win over Brazil Backfires for German Grand Prix Organisers

You'd think just about everyone would still be celebrating Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil to reach the World Cup final, but organisers of the German Grand Prix have been smarting after their promotion backfired. The marketing team offered a discount on some of their last-minute tickets, hoping to cash in on the national good mood—€11 (£8.70) off the cost of every ticket per goal Germany scored. With no other game in the knockout stages seeing a team score more than twice, it looked as if that was a manageable offer. As it turned out, however, the Germans broke history and some fans scored again with seriously reduced tickets. The Grand Prix at Hockenheim takes place on the weekend of July 18-20.
