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!

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.

The Import Meet crew just posted a video of Chris Jeanneret announcing his new FD ride. The chassis and engine combo will shock you. Yes, Virginia, even more shocking than an S chassis with an LS swap. Intrigued? So were we. Watch the video to see what Chris has planned for this season.

If you don't know who Danny George is by now, holy crap there is no hope for you! We'll be interviewing the "People's Champ" tonight to talk about his outlook on the 2014 Formula Drift Season and his very unique proposal. Then, Kerryann and I will talk a little about the 24 Hours of Daytona. From the spectacular crash of Memo Gidley and Matteo Malucelli to the controversal call by IMSA against the Level 5 Ferrari, we'll talk about it! We're also going to do something a bit different!

Following this year’s 11th running of the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill we wanted to provide an insider’s view of what it takes to compete (and complete) one of the less talked about but more difficult endurance races in existence. To get the details we sat down with Daniel Wennerberg, owner of Pure Performance in Laguna Niguel, CA and his Crew Chief Ivan Zwart. Daniel has competed at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill seven times; three as driver/support for another team and four under the banner of his own shop.

It’s called the SHOWKAR. Don’t be fooled by the car’s nickname however as it has the goods bolted-on turning a 2009 Subaru Imreza WRX (no, not a STI) into time attack competitor. The amazing part about this car is just how much of it is bolted-on. Follow along to see how you can bolt-on speed to your WRX too.

Falken Tire's drift team consists of Justin Pawlak, Dai Yoshihara and Darren "DMac" McNamara. Hailing from Ireland Darren has been doing well this Formula D season in a Nissan S14 built by Scott Dodgion of SPD Motorsports. Darren had a tough 2012 season which started off badly with a hard crash at the season opening round at Long Beach, breaking his foot and totaling his beloved Saturn Sky which had been his trademark car for several years. Nicknamed the Bullet, the Sky had the reputation of being one of the fastest cars in Formula D.

Sneak Peek: Mike Essa and GSR Autosport's E46 Build
By Khiem Dinh
"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid." That's what Han Solo told me at least. To be fair, the crew at GSR Autosport only has the car halfway built. But what she's showing so far has potential! Let's check out the new goodies on the new chassis.
