We constantly complain about how NASCAR doesn’t like racing in the rain. It’s the butt of every joke about the biggest racing series in North America. So, we at the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championships will always race come snow, sleet, hail or… Wait, we canceled Round 1 because of rain?! Well, what are we to do? Go karting at K1 Speed in Torrance, CA, that's what!

When Nitto Tires sent us the release on Loren Healy’s win at the 2014 King of the Hammers, it was a momentous occasion. When you consider what it takes to win the King of the Hammers, it is amazing any truck survives. We take a moment during Nitto’s celebration of Loren Healy to look at the truck and do a Sneak Peek to see what it takes and what you bring back other than a trophy.

After all the breaking news about Nexen last week, drivers were still in shock by the time MotoIQ Radio was to be aired. Now that a week has passed, we'll now see what two former Nexen drivers are doing for 2014. We'll first have Joon Maeng on to discuss what the next step is for him after some pretty big changes from last year. Then we'll have Kyle Mohan on to talk about his program and see how progress is being made on the Mazdatrix RX-8. While the MPTCC couldn't play in the rain, Global Time Attack's ProAm Shift Sector decided that Buttonwillow was dry enough to hold their first two rounds. We'll talk to Stephanie Cemo and Yukio Taira about that and how wet Buttonwillow really was.

The second event in the 2014 Rally America series took place last weekend in the foothills of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, with stages spread amongst the towns of Salem, Steelville, and Potosi. The scenic backdrop named after the fabled home of Winnie the Pooh is a favorite for spectators, with drivers enjoying the fast, flowing, and dusty gravel roads. The weather seems to be dramatically different every year, fortunately last year’s snow and ice wasn’t repeated for this event, although passing heavy rains on Thursday would leave some stages rather slippery throughout the weekend.

Welcome to the Caffeine and Octane show. This show started a few years ago with just 4 cars and has since grown to an average crowd of ~800 cars. That is, ~800 cars of every shape, size, demographic, make, model and persuasion.

Buttonwillow Raceway, a track synonymous with Time Attack in North America. With its multiple configurations, it's a favorite among track enthusiasts as well. So, there couldn't be a more fitting place to hold the first round of the Redline Time Attack Series than this legendary track. What records would fall? You'll have to read on to find out!

“Survive the 25” is the theme for many when racing the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Team Honda Research West didn’t just survive, they conquered, taking first and fourth places with their pair of Acura ILXs in the E1 class. The class winning #27 car finished eighth overall which is a major achievement considering the serious hardware at the track. Building an endurance racer presents unique challenges which a sprint race car does not have to contend with. Follow along as we see what makes these cars and the THRW team winners.

Tragedy struck at the heart of Americana yesterday as a large sinkhole opened up at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Kerryann, some MotoIQ guests, and I will talk about that and where the National Corvette Museum goes from here. I'll also be talking about my experience at the King of the Hammers and we may have a special guest come on to talk about the Hammers with me!

Hot rods, roadsters, and rats; sounds like a very weird combination but this is what made up the mix at the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show. I'll take you through the journey, reliving memories and pointing out some really interesting things I saw at the show. Nope, it's not your typical MotoIQ article but one I wanted to do because it's fun to step outside the box sometimes.
