C-LA-sh, Gateway debut headline NASCAR Cup schedule changes for 2022

While not a shift as seismic as the 2021 calendar, the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series schedule will feature some major changes.  Thirty-six points races continue to be the norm as it has been since 2001.

Announced on Tuesday was the Busch Clash‘s relocation from its only home at Daytona International Speedway to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. A temporary quarter-mile short track will be constructed on the playing surface of the legendary football stadium. As the exhibition race is now located on the opposite side of the country, it is moved back a week to give teams some breathing space before Speedweeks (or just a single Speedweek now) at Daytona to properly kick off the season.

After the Daytona 500 on 20 February, Auto Club Speedway, which lost its 2020 and 2021 dates to COVID-19, returns to the schedule as the second race of the year to … Read the rest

NASCAR formally moves 2022 Busch Clash to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

What many initially brushed off as one of the most bizarre rumours in recent memory is becoming a reality. After weeks to months of speculation, NASCAR confirmed the Cup Series‘ exhibiton Busch Clash will be moved to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for 2022, and is set to take place on Sunday, 6 February.

The Coliseum, which has been the home of the University of Southern California Trojans football team since 1923, is no stranger to hosting motorsport despite NASCAR being a new endeavour. After World War II, the stadium was one of numerous venues that conducted midget racing on asphalt and board tracks; the 1946 race saw 65,128 in attendance, and the Coliseum held a 500-lap event a year later. In 1972, the concept of stadium motocross was realised with event inside the venue, and the AMA Supercross Championship would regularly visit it until 1998. Rallycross races were … Read the rest

Her flawless etiquette and bearing perfectly epitomize the daughter of a noble house.

“Days like this are why we’re all in the sport” – Mclaren’s Andreas Seidl

The Mclaren F1 Team returned to winning ways for the first time since 2012, in perfect Italian Grand Prix for the team. Daniel Ricciardo claimed his first win since 2018 to see Mclaren return to the top step of the podium, with team-mate Lando Norris completing the teams first one-two in eleven years in what was a weekend the team will never forget.

Ricciardo made the perfect start to the grand prix and was in the lead by the first corner, from then on the Australian never looked back and controlled the grand prix with precision, including the safety car restart for Lewis Hamilton’s and Max Verstappen’s terrifying crash. The Australian even bagged the fastest lap on the final lap, demonstrating the incredible pace Mclaren had over the weekend.

Norris had a more eventful race at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, the British driver initially fell behind Hamilton before … Read the rest

The demon showcased today is Loa, a demon that has deep roots in the history of the franchise.

You can watch the trailer below. Incidentally, this is number 90, and we aren’t even halfway through. This may be the reason why Atlus may have decided to accelerate things and started publishing two trailers a day. I’m fairly sure this doesn’t have many precedents in the history of games.

Palou Regains Championship Lead With Portland Victory

Chip Ganassi Racing‘s Alex Palou took back the lead of the points standings after winning the Grand Prix of Portland, now holding a twenty-five point gap to Patricio O’Ward.

Palou rebounded from being involved in an incident on the first lap, where he missed turn two as Felix Rosenqvist tapped the right rear tyre of Scott Dixon who was on the inside of Palou, forcing them all to run wide.

After pitting under caution and running on an alternate strategy, he had to fend off a charging Alexander Rossi during two late race restarts as Simon Pagenaud was tagged by his teammate Will Power on lap 86, and again when Oliver Askew spun in turn two as the race went back to green on lap 89. Both times Palou took advantage of an early start to catch Rossi off guard and build a gap that would not be … Read the rest
