The first event of National Auto Sport Association’s (NASA) Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC) was held last weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California. The series showcases six different classes and hard fought battles as teams race into the night in an enduro format with multiple driver swaps and fuel stops. The culmination of the multiple race series ends in December during NASA’s 25 Hours of Thunderhill. See the full write up and results from NASA’s first Western Endurance Racing Championship event of 2010 at Jalopnik.

Talking trash on car forums is a rite of passage for most car guys of the new millennium. Well, The Forum Wars has changed all of that. You see, this show mandates you gotta put your right foot where your mouth is. You think you and your ride are the baddest thing to ever hit a racetrack? Then do it in front of the cameras against an equal competitor.
I had to do just that after talking smack on Stangnet.com about how my friend’s car, a 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT, owned by Steve Kuhtz, was the shi… stuff. The show pitted me against a SoCal drifter in a Nissan representing My350Z.com. We did battle on the drag strip and a road course to determine the overall champion.
I’m happy to report that, thanks to the boys at Shelby building a great car and a little last minute help from Hoosier Tires, Carbotech Brake Pads and I/O Port Racing Supplies, this Car Domain blogger came out the winner! The Forum Wars presented by Royal Purple is featured in one minute segments on the Speed Channel, with full episodes viewable online. Check out Episode One at www.forumwars.tv.

Earlier this week we showed you how the Car Domain entry (Krider Racing/Big Sausage Pizza Delivery) won the “Good Class” at the 24 Hours of LeMons Sears Pointless. Well, the team’s infamous Big Sausage t-shirt made an appearance on the newest episode of The Smoking Tire. Matt Farah donned one of the infamous red Big Sausage Pizza Delivery shirts as he test drove a red Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

The Krider Racing Big Sausage Pizza Delivery Acura Integra, sporting the CarDomain decals on the rear quarter panels, finished second overall and won the “good class” at the 24 Hours of LeMons Sears Pointless event. The team’s success was due in large part to the hard work of the Men in Black, Krider Racing’s pit crew, who had the fastest pit stops at the event.
