Best of Delaney 2015

The beginning of 2015 was a first for me. Usually I spend New Years at home and go to sleep about five minutes after the ball drops in New York. But this year I watched the new year come in surrounded by thousands of people at the base of the Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. For me, […]

Final Bout II

It was finally time for an event that I’ve been waiting for since last year: Final Bout II. Last year’s event was awesome. The atmosphere, the teams, the cars and the camaraderie of the drivers and fans made it one of the funnest events anyone had ever been to.

The Mid Ohio Vintage Grand Prix

Every weekend in the summer there’s racing all over the globe. And usually I’m upset because I can never get enough racing, and I don’t think I ever will. But recently there was one of the best weekends this year. TUDOR was at Watkins Glen for their six hour race, Pirelli World Challenge was racing […]

No Star Bash

I’ve grown up with NASCAR, CART and the American Le Mans Series. I wasn’t introduced to drifting until the early 2000s, but I had very little personal contact with it. I rarely saw it on TV, and only came across some info in magazines. It wasn’t until 2007 that I really started to get into […]

Lingenfelter’s Open House

A couple months ago I heard that Ken Lingenfelter was having an open house at his collection. It’s been a few years since my last visit, so I decided it’d be a good time to catch up on what’s new. Since this collection is probably the best car collection in Michigan, it attracts a pretty decent […]

Winter in the UK Part 2: Newcastle & Edinburgh

After being surrounded by people and buildings for a week in London, it was nice change of pace when we arrived in Newcastle, England. Newcastle is a pretty big city itself, but we were going out to Greenhaugh which was literally in the middle of nowhere. It was awesome.

Best of Delaney 2014

Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]

RM Motorsports

A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me a text asking if I was busy on December 6th. I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars.

Detroit Dragway Reunion: Return of the Classics

Drag racing is one of those motorsports were you either love it, or hate it. Modern day drag racing doesn’t have the same feel as the cars from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, but luckily at the Detroit Dragway Reunion, that’s exactly what it was. The classic cars that spawned what we now know as […]

Best of Delaney 2013

Maybe only after the year I was born, 2013 has been one of the best years of my life. Between being allowed to relive races on here, and following Noble Star Rally around, it’s been an interesting and awesome year. I have to start off with this epic TVR Sagaris we randomly stumbled across in […]

Rally America Round 7: The Lake Superior Performance Rally

The final round of the 2013 Rally America season took place in the top of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula around towns of Houghton and L’Anse. The championship battle at the beginning of the rally was down to only 17 points between Higgins and Block, so there was sure to be tension in the air. Block won […]

NASCAR Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200

Ok, ok. I know what you’re thinking. NASCAR?! How lame and boring, all they do is go around in circles for 500 miles every week. Well, this race is just a little different from the other races in the NASCAR Nationwide series. It’s one of the few NASCAR races on a road course!

American Le Mans and Grand Am
The Double at Road America

Starting next year, American Le Mans and Grand Am will combine into one major series called the United SportsCar Racing Series. The first official race will be the 24 Hours of Daytona in January 2014, but Road America held the first “Double Header” weekend to bring the two together.

Rally America Round 4:
The Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally

Another day, another rally. The fourth round of the Rally America series took place in the hilly countryside of Pennsylvania, aroundd around the picturesque little town of Wellsboro. Every year the town gets ready for the influx of flat four boxers and rowdy fans.
