  • World of Outlaws)Forty drivers strapped into
    their chariots. Hundreds of thousands of fans sat at the edge of
    their seats with the thunderous roar of eight-cylinder engines
    emphatically echoing around them. However, those chariots were Sim
    Rigs. Those seats were couches, armchairs, beds and possibly even
    the floor. And those engines were the simulated sounds of World of
    Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Sprint Cars and Morton
    Buildings Late Models on iRacing, broadcasted through televisions
    for the first time in history on FOX Sports 1.

  • MotorSport Video)Hey racefans!! I know times
    are tough and good racing is hard to come by. Here at MotorSport
    Video, I have decided to change things around a little bit. I am no
    longer going to ship out DVDs of races. I am in the process of
    digitizing all of my videos and will be offering them at reduced
    prices that I will send to you via the internet. I don’t have to
    handle them, put them in envelopes or take them to the post office.
    I will be announcing a new classic video every month. For the month
    of April, I am offering “1986 Thrills & Spills”. This video is
    narrated by Mr. Sprintcarstats and all around funny guy, Kevin
    Eckert. It is almost an hour long of spins, crashes, close finishes
    and flips from that year. It includes action from Florida to Texas
    to Indiana to Ohio, you get the idea. Around 40 different tracks.
    What would normally cost you $15 with S&H, will be offered for
    $7.50. All you have to do is PayPal me at

    [email protected]
    ” or send CC info to me at “[email protected]
    Once payment is received, I will email you the link to download the
    video. You will have 3 days to retrieve it, and I will know when you
    have it. You can put it on your main computer, laptop or put it in
