2020 Ford Super Duty: An In-Depth Look At Dearborn’s Big Slugger

The 2020 Ford Super Duty enters a market with stiff competition from GM and Ram. Ford designs and builds all their heavy-duty engine and transmission combinations in house. The 2020 Super Duty is the most tested truck in Ford’s history, logging an excess of 15 million miles.  Meet the 2020 Ford Super Duty. It’s bigger. It’s badder. And in one striking way, it’s a little familiar. Glancing over the specs, one item will stand out immediately for Ford fans: that is the return of the 7.3. Although...

Jimmie Johnson ready for a 'clean start' after historic chapter closes

Jimmie Johnson went full throwback for NASCAR’s season-ending weekend, commemorating the end of two long-running eras — his time with crew chief Chad Knaus and sponsor Lowe’s. He shaved to replicate the baby-faced look of his early career, and his Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 Chevrolet sported a retro design at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Kevin Meendering will be his crew chief, and Ally Financial will be his primary sponsor.

Martin Truex Jr. on the end: ‘It sucks. It hurts. It’s terrible. I hate it’

There were no tears shed as Martin Truex Jr. climbed from his No. 78 Toyota after the final ride of Furniture Row Racing. Crew chief Cole Pearn clapped Truex on the left shoulder and had a measured conversation with his driver about everything that transpired over the past three hours. “It sucks,” said Truex, whose voice did quaver a few times in a NBC interview after finishing second Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway in his bid for consecutive championships in the last start for his Denver-bas...

After Furniture Row's last race, Martin Truex Jr. laments the 'reverse scenario' that led to 2017 title

The circumstances that led to Martin Truex Jr.’s 2017 Cup Series title ultimately denied him a chance to go back-to-back. Truex took the lead of Sunday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway from Kyle Busch off the race’s final restart with less than 15 laps to go. “I was hoping clean air would be enough to keep us out front there, but [Logano] was better on the short run all day and past lap 10 or 15 we’d start coming back on them and be better than them on the long run,” Truex’s crew chief Cole Pe...

Elliott Sadler toasts JR Motorsports team at his Xfinity Series send-off

What Elliott Sadler lacked on the results sheet Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, he and his JR Motorsports No. 1 team made up for with a heck of a retirement party. Sadler raised an ice-cold can to his 24 years in NASCAR’s highest divisions, sharing a toast and warm embrace with his crew on pit road after Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series finale. The scene was reminiscent of last year’s Homestead send-off for his team owner, Dale Earnhardt Jr., who transitioned to NBC Sports after his full-t...

What each Xfinity Championship 4 driver would accomplish with title

Win Tony Stewart’s RTR Mustang

Back in early May, before the NASCAR race at Dover International Speedway, driver of the number 10 Smithfield Ford Fusion Aric Almirola and team owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, Tony Stewart, debuted a 2018 Ford Mustang from RTR. Named “Smoke Machine,” the car is up for grabs in a national sweepstakes put on by Smithfield. The RTR brand was the brain-child of Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. who’s traveled the world over campaigning the Ford Mustang. RTR cars are turnkey, performance machin...

GOP Moderates Convinced Softer Stance On Immigration Will Save Control Of House

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Cipriano Garza says Rep. Carlos Curbelo is “a decent man, a family man.” He lauds the South Florida Republican for defiantly pushing his party to protect young “Dreamer” immigrants from deportation. Founder of a nonprofit that helps farm workers, Garza happily hosted Curbelo at a reception honoring high school graduates last week at the massive Homestead-Miami Speedway. But his praise came with a warning about this November’s elections. “He better do what’s right for the c...

Register to win this Smithfield Smoke Machine 2018 Mustang RTR Spec 3

Winning a new Mustang has to be right up there with hitting the game-winning home run, scoring the go-ahead touchdown, or dunking on the other team’s biggest player. The only thing is, being able to take home a new Mustang has more staying power than being a sports hero for a night. Winning a Mustang means you get to enjoy it for an extended period of time—as long as you want or until you decide to part ways with the car. One Mustang giveaway we just heard about is the Smithfield Smoke Machine, ...

Ford Is Pounding The Daylights Out of The New Ranger (Video)

Ford is pounding the tar out of the new Ranger, set to arrive early next year. In the last few years, midsize trucks have made quite the comeback, evidenced by the return of the Colorado and Canyon, and a redesigned Tacoma and Ridgeline. So naturally, the Blue Oval decided it was time to get back in the game, and even gave us a glimpse of the new Ranger at the North American International Auto Show in January. In a new video, we see just what Ford is up to with the Ranger. As you watch it, you a...

NASCAR Cup season’s final weekend was something special

It was 1992 at the Hooters 500 in Atlanta where the face of NASCAR had a major change. It was Richard Petty’s final Cup race after a lengthy career, and it also marked the start of the Jeff Gordon era. Perhaps one day racing fans will look back at Sunday’s NASCAR race at Homestead-Miami Speedway with the same feeling. After all, Martin Truex Jr. not only won the race but his first driving championship on the day Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended his 15-year Cup career. It was also the end of a full-time ...

Petty’s ’70 Superbird Is The Ultimate Mope & You Can Win It!

What people think they want and what they really want aren’t always one in the same. Everyone says they want the best, but history is chock full of class-of-the-field products that sank to the bottom of the barrel. After the passage of time bestows the gift of clarity upon the misguided masses, it’s then and only then that consumers finally appreciate what they missed out on. It happened with Betamax. It happened with Paul’s Boutique. And most outrageously of all, it happened with one of the mos...
