The Ultimate Guide to Charging an Electric Car
Of the more than 17 Million new cars sold in the United States in 2017, nearly 200,000 of them were electric vehicles, according to market reports. While that may seem like a drop in the bucket, it’s actually a huge increase from previous years, especially since EV’s have only been commercially available since the groundbreaking release of the Toyota Prius in Japan in 1997. For most of us, electric vehicles still seem like a mysterious new piece of technology, but they actually have a long and storied history dating back over 100 years!
NASCAR Wraps Up Testing at New Charlotte "ROVAL"
by Pete McCole
NASCAR concluded the second of two days of testing at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s new oval/road-course layout on Tuesday ahead of the track’s debut event on September 30. 13 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers were on hand for the final test, which produced yet more changes to the 17-turn, 2.28-mile course as the teams try to get a handle on what some drivers are calling the most unique road course on the NASCAR schedule.
IndyCar Toronto GP postscript
by Brian Carroccio
Demoralized. That’s how I’d feel, if I were Josef Newgarden, Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Will Power, or any other Verizon IndyCar championship aspirant, after taking inventory following this weekend’s Honda Indy Toronto. Because once again, Scott Dixon, had a somewhat slow start to the IndyCar season. Once again, Dixon has not been what you would call dominant. But once again, Dixon has made a charge during the middle of the season to bring himself into title contention.

Formula E finale
Jean-Eric Vergne picked up his fourth win of the season at the final race of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship in New York to round-off a sensational day of sport for the French nation. The TECHEETAH driver - and newly-crowned Formula E champion - fended off pressure from the outgoing title-winner Lucas di Grassi in a fight to the flag reminiscent of the nail-biting finish from earlier this season in Punta del Este.
Another win for Marquez at Sachsenring
Rossi runs 2nd
Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) stood on the top step of the podium again at the Pramac Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, but it wasn’t a straight forward victory for the Championship leader. In a race where tire choice was a major talking point, the number 93 opted for the soft rear compound, incredibly making it last the full 30 laps without a serious drop in performance.

Newgarden wins pole for Toronto Honda GP
IndyCar on the streets
Sporadic light rain showers and the resulting ever-changing track conditions threw constant challenges at Verizon IndyCar Series teams and drivers today in qualifying for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto. Penske Chevy driver Josef Newgarden took pole position by being the last driver to cross the line on a drying track with a lap of 59.496s. That was enough to take pole from Scott Dixon who was on a really fast lap but a wet section caught him out, the backend stepped out and he ended up 2nd.
Marquez takes pole by just 0.025 in Germany
Ninth consecutive pole for the King of Sachsenring
Qualifying day of the German GP followed one of Marc Marquez’s classic patterns. The reigning World Champion dedicated the FP3 and FP4 sessions to finalizing his bike’s setup in order to understand the tire feedback and to test the limits to which he could push himself and his RC213V. With all the dots connected, Marc and his team proceeded to Q2 with a clear strategy in mind: three attempts--with a long slide and an unplanned (but also unsurprising, really) near-crash--to take his ninth consecutive pole at Sachsenring.
