SD Speedway/Event Center Auction Set for Sept 15 (Update)
Badlands from the air
Badlands from the air

UPDATE This article gives more background about what happened to Badlands. Basically when interest rates got capped on his payday loan center Chuck Brennan shut down all his South Dakota businesses, including the track. This is what happens when politicians try to over regulate. They end up cutting off their nose to spite their face and the rich people with money and businesses move elsewhere.

The average profit on every Ferrari is $80,000
Ferrari hears the sweet ring of the cash register with every new car sold. The Italian company banks a profit of $80,000 per car sold and tops the industry, per a study from German economics professor Ferdinand Dudenhoffer.

Motor1 translated the study's findings to show Ferrari's well-off margins, which are current for the first six months of the year. Rival Lamborghini does not make its financial results public. Ferrari's profit margin is over four times greater than the second-most profitable company, Porsche.

The Don Panoz-led Green4U GT-EV project, which was announced at Le Mans last year, has officially been shelved.

Originally, Panoz’s plan, was to race the all-electric car as a Garage 56 entry at Le Mans this year, though back in December 2017 Green4U told DSC that discussions were still ongoing about a Le Mans entry and that the project “hadn’t been granted a Garage 56 slot for 2018 or beyond”.

Tourist in Dubai rents Lamborghini, racks up $47,000 in speeding fines in 4 hours
Before I went to Dubai last fall, I imagined a sea of supercars running rampant with few repercussions. I couldn't have been more wrong (at least when it comes to the repercussions bit). Speed cameras in Dubai are no joke. The drivers, though occasionally erratic, steadfastly follow speed limits. And the penalties for breaking the law in the United Arab Emirates are quite severe. Apparently, a 25-year-old British tourist was expecting more freedom when he racked up more than $47,000 in fines in a rented Lamborghini Huracan in fewer than four hours.

Judge Denies Pretrial Deal for Dodge Challenger Hellcat Driver
Garza Indiana State Police Mugshot
Garza Indiana State Police Mugshot
What's a good place to take your Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and let all 707 horses run wild at 150 mph? Unsurprisingly and unfortunately for one 30-year-old Chicago man, the answer is not a public highway in Indiana, where a judge recently declined his petition for a deal to avoid a trial for allegedly doing exactly that, according to the Chicago Tribune.

We first highlighted the saga of Christopher Garza last April, when he was pulled over at 1:30 in the morning on I-90 by a very surprised Indiana State Trooper after getting clocked at 158 mph while passing through the city of Gary. Garza had recently purchased the Hellcat, and he reportedly told police that his friend and passenger was a wounded veteran who he was trying to cheer up with a quick thrill ride. He also said he thought the empty, straight highway was the safest place to do it. Don't buy it? Neither did the cops, who arrested him for reckless driving and towed the Challenger.

Abiteboul admitted that Esteban Ocon had been "on the short list" but it "did not work out". Also considered was Carlos Sainz, but Ricciardo "was the only option, besides being the best, for us to have a 100pc Renault driver".

Brian France DUI Arrest makes headlines on network news
Brian France's mugshot

NASCAR Chair & CEO Brian France’s DUI arrest found its way into the opening segment of two network news shows last night.

CBS’ “Evening News” teased the report in the opening of its telecast, with NBC’s “Nightly News” reporting on France about 15 minutes into the broadcast. ABC’s “World News” did not report on France.

NBCSN’s “NASCAR America” led with France’s arrest, with a report from NBCSN’s Nate Ryan on how this could affect the day-to-day operations of NASCAR.

That is contrasted by FS1’s “NASCAR Race Hub,” which reported on France 15 minutes into the broadcast. FS1’s Adam Alexander read a statement from France, but there was no discussion among the co-hosts about his arrest. THE DAILY

Recent filings at Companies House reveal that on 26 July, Mansour Ojjeh stepped down as a director of McLaren Racing, while also stepping down as a director of McLaren Marketing and McLaren Applied Technologies.

His holding now stands at 15.9%, with a further 62.6% held by the Mumtalakat sovereign wealth fund and the rest held by a number of investors, including Michael Latifi who bought a 10% stake for £203m in May.

With all the big names retired, NASCAR needs Chase Elliott to be the next 'hero' so they can ride the coattails of e and his father
Chase Elliott yesterday won his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race before a sold out grandstand at Watkins Glen Int'l.

Elliott, the son of NASCAR HOFer Bill Elliott and the presumed successor to Dale Earnhardt Jr. as the sport's new most popular driver, won the race in the No. 9 Chevrolet during his 99th Cup Series start for Hendrick Motorsports.

The win by Elliott was a long time coming for him, the team and a series desperate to see new drivers step in to fill the void of a glut of recently retired stars.

Elliott will likely do interviews this week but is not expected to do a media tour in N.Y. as drivers sometimes do after big events. The win was the 250th for HMS and comes a little more than a year after its most recent Cup win. Adam Stern, SBD.

F1 changed its logo for the first time in 23 years at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November. The "driving force behind it" was F1 owner Liberty Media.

The previous logo "cleverly created the silhouette" of a number one between a slanted letter "F" and the "speed lines opposite it."
