The DFL Show: Episode 36 – The Season Begins

Jeff Gordon, shown here demonstrating his weak-ass dab after winning the Rolex 24 at Daytona

This week on The DFL Show, it’s Brad, Pat, and Joel gathered around their mics to discuss racing. Mostly Daytona. Pretty much the whole show is about Daytona. Okay, a lot of the show is about the race-winning pass at Daytona. Daytona was a great way to open the season, wasn’t it? DAYTONA!

We also move into a bit of news, covering some F1 news, including the death of Manor, Bernie’s alleged spin-off series. Formula E is going racing in Brooklyn and tickets are on sale now. Chip Ganassi gets an award from the RRDC. RGR Sport is dropping out of WEC. Then we give our predictions of the Bathurst 12 hour race (coming up this weekend), answer some fan questions, give away some awards, and then bounce on out of here.

Make Your Own Memories With Your Own Bowman Odyssey Rig!

This is no average ride, this is the living quarters that inspired and facilitated some of the most spectacular editorial we’ve ever seen. We’ve talked about it here before, a lot, and now it’s for sale. Zach Bowman and his family have completed their one-year journey and are settled back into a fixed address, so it is time for them to move on to the next part of life, the next adventure. The camper part of the rig is moving on to the next person who is looking to create adventures, to live life, to go exploring. What’s the price of freedom? This camper and all of its accouterments will run you 30 large, and that’s a pretty damn good start.

Motorsport Monday: Cadillac’s Daytona Win Is Good For IMSA

The endurance classic has a recent trend of producing the most exciting finishes, 2017 notwithstanding. 

If I’m being honest with myself the race was a little bit boring this year for at least the first 20 hours or so. That’s how endurance racing has traditionally been throughout my lifetime, but since about the mid-2000s this race has been the proverbial “24-hour sprint”. Being that most of the field was running a brand new car with zero race miles under its tires, the number of retirements was hardly a surprise, but it was certainly noticeable. In years past with the stout, tried, and true prototypes of old, there would often be handfuls of cars on the lead lap as the finish neared, but this year just two. How did Caddy manage this?

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 167 – Cam’s Waterworks

This week on C&T it’s the original trio of Cam, Brad, and Jason sitting around to discuss various vaguely automotive themed topics. We kick off by thanking Hunziker Design (and by extension Nic and Heather) for helping out in a friend’s time of need. We only have one week to go before Brad and Jason take off for the Driving While Awesome Coastal Range Rally, so final car preparations are going on there. Brad visited a cool new hipster coffee place with a motorcycle theme. Oh, and Brad also *fixed* his Audi, and yes the problem was stupid and yes he is stupid. Jason has the official car of C&T, a Corvette Z06 for a couple weeks (we’re all jealous). And cam tells a story.


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Cam’s Waterworks

Our Tuesday episode this week is mostly a question episode, but being that Jason was on this one, he jumped in with some stories about his time in Texas driving a very fast and very highly tuned BMW M3. We hope you enjoy!

The DFL Show: Episode 35 – The Fire

12-Bathurst-12HR-Main-Straight-Dawn-01-WEB-WM

This week on DFL, Eric, Brad, Joel, and Pat sit around the mics to discuss the goings on of last week’s motorsport events. There was an Asian LMS race, the Race of Champions, and the opening round of the World Rally Championship in Monte Carlo. We’re kicking off the season, literally the first stage, with a bit of tragedy, and we try to remember that the sport is dangerous, despite how much we love it. We don’t have a game this week because we go overtime ranting about news items, but we give some half-hearted awards and talk about the Daytona 24 coming up next week. We give our predictions that are likely to be quite wrong. Watch the race to see how wrong we are! Oh, and NASCAR has some bullshit new regulations that are terrible and awful and we hate them.

Two Wheel Tuesday: Cafe & Racers?

16114495_10100545356350409_9116936637454658339_n

This weekend after a lovely walk with my wife and some of our friends (and about 10,000 other Reno-ites), we decided to check out a new coffee shop downtown that I’d been dying to see. It’s called See See’s Motor Coffee Co., and this is their second location after the success of the initial shop in Portland. It’s a hipster sort of place with great coffee and a wood/exposed brick decor motif that resonates with my generation, apparently. Being that there was a lot of foot traffic in the area on Saturday, the shop was a bit full and the lines were a bit long, but it ended up being worth it. It was nice to have a place to warm up and it also helped to have some cool bikes in the shop to check out while there. Click the jump to see some bikes and cool gear in a coffee shop.

There wasn’t much going on this week, there was plenty of news, but little of it was racing related. We are ramping up to all of the good stuff kicking off next weekend in Florida with the Daytona 24, however. There was a “Race of Champions” on American soil for the first time ever, and the Monte Carlo Rally took place over in Yurp. Sadly a rally spectator was killed on the first stage, reminding us that we’re not immortal. We’re seeing some entry lists filter out, so we’ll make our widely baseless Daytona predictions here as well.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and be sure to tune in to The DFL Show, our racing podcast, every Thursday at 7:30 AM here on Hooniverse.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 165 – Ping-Wings

C&T 165

On this episode of the Cammed & Tubbed podcast, Jason couldn’t join us, but Cam and Tub had fun with it anyway. Brad recently spent a weekend in the bay area driving a Chevy Sprint Turbo and a Renault Twizy, Cam got some new CAMNTUB plates for his Bimmer, Brad bought a shitload of parts for his cars in recent days, Seinfeld is jumping from Crackle to Netflix, and Brad quit his day job. Somehow we got to talking about Benedict Cumberbatch…

Cam is a dear friend, and we enjoy bro-ing out. Luckily you guys get to listen in…


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Ping-Wings

And, as promised, here is our “regular” episode from Tuesday, wherein we replaced our questions episode with a Detroit Auto Show-centric episode. It’s a little late, but it’s here.

This week on The DFL Show, we’ve got Brad, Pat, and Eric back for some semi-coherent conversations about racing. Granted, Eric did drink a 10% ABV beer during the recording, so he gets a little louder as the show progresses. Coherent is maybe the wrong word… We do enjoy the discussion and drift our way through various topics, including Dakar, the 24 hours of Dubai, the Chili Bowl, and the upcoming Daytona and Bathurst endurance races. We talk about how inaccessible sports car racing is to the casual fan (hopefully we make it more accessible?). Then we jump into the news, ranging from Formula 1 Silly Season to some WEC news to our breakdown of times at The Roar test session last week. Then it’s a quick quiz, our awards for the week, and a brief discussion of next week’s activities. Enjoy!

Sebastien Loeb (FRA) of Team Peugeot Total races during stage 11 of Rally Dakar 2017 from San Juan to Rio Cuarto, Argentina on January 13, 2017

There was a minimal amount of racing this weekend, but the season is just about to crank out to full power shortly. We’ve seen our first 24 hour endurance race of the year, Dakar has rolled in to the finish line, and the midget sprint race major event was this weekend as well. There’s some pretty big breaking news this morning, and we’ll cover all of the other news you need to know from last week. If the supposed “off-season” is any indication, 2017 will have some pretty righteous racing this year. Check it out!
