Places all over the country decorate for the holidays with light shows and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is no exception! IMS is hosting its 3rd annual Lights At The Brickyard Event where visitors have the chance to drive their cars on the famous yard of bricks while seeing light formations ranging from traditional Christmas trees, Santa Claus, and the evolution of IndyCar. The event allows drivers to drive the oval's Turn 4 to Turn 1, Gasoline Alley, and finally the yard of bricks, which is pretty cool! There are over 3 million lights so if you're in the Indianapolis area this weekend you definitely should check it out!
NASCAR In Nashville
The NASCAR Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoors Truck Series may soon be at the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. The agreement must be approved by the Metro Board of Fair Commissioners before any deal can be struck with the sanctioning body. The Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville is the oldest continually operating track in the US and the .596 mile track hosted the NASCAR Cup series from 1958 to 1984. The Xfinity and truck races were held there through the 2000s. If the city approves the deal races could start as soon as 2020. What do you think, is this the right move for NASCAR?
Elon Musk's Tunnel
Elon Musk’s underground tunnel system is supposed to help relieve traffic congestion in major cities. The system transports electric cars through cities at a high speed, eventually as fast as 150mph reportedly. Reporters and entrepreneurs took the ceremonious first rides under LA where cars traveled at 40 mph. And while guests said the ride was very bumpy, Musk described it as epic (no surprise there). Do you think this system will take off?
Ken Block takes the final gymkhana video to 5 locations with 5 different cars. Endless tires were shredded, and stunts pulled off and it features the Hoonitruck, Hoonicorn Mustang, Focus RS RX, Fiesta WRC car and the Escort RS rally car. The crew traveled from Sweden to Detroit to Mexico to LA to Texas and it also features Travis Pastrana, Rob Dyrdek along with a few other big names. Check it out here!
