For Krider Racing, the 2012 running of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill started with rum and ended with rum. It took a fair amount of rum to garner the courage to take on such a monumental task like “The 25.” This is the story of how a group of friends came together to compete with factory backed professional race teams in the longest road race in North America, while campaigning a $500 car that was originally built for the 24 Hours of LeMons, and somehow walked away victorious. This is the Krider Racing 25 Hours of Thunderhill “Rum Diary”
If you are looking for a smart sport utility vehicle that can actually deliver the goods, both in the city running errands and in the snow or off-road then check out the Honda Pilot. Speed:Sport:Life ran a 2012 model Honda Pilot from the top of the United States at Niagara Falls down to the bottom of the Mississippi River. The Pilot was filled to the brim with family, luggage and even a soap box derby car. It turned out to be the perfect road trip vehicle.

Here at Speed:Sport:Life we love our racing. We like to watch it, we like to read about it, and we like to participate as much as our pocket books and significant others will allow. The guys at the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) feel the same way and they do their best to let gearheads like us come out to the track to play. From High Performance Driving Education (HPDE) to full blown wheel to wheel endurance racing there is something for everyone.
NASA has come out with their own digital magazine, entitled Speed News, and has asked Speed:Sport:Life contributor Racer Boy Rob Krider to contribute. The digital mag looks great and works awesome for tablet users. Check out the newest issue below:

Bring Your Own Big Wheel (most commonly referred to as BYOBW) is a crazy annual event held on Easter Sunday in San Francisco where hundreds of participants dress up in costumes and ride a child’s toy down a wicked steep and crooked road. Epic crashes, hilarity and some pretty cool racing ensues. Speed:Sport:Life was there to capture all of the passes and crashes.
Check out the insane video:
