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:
To supplement the new magazine NASA has a monthly video show also entitled Speed News produced by GoRacingTV.com. And for the host, they have Speed:Sport:Life’s own Racer Boy Rob Krider along with NASA’s John Lindsey to host the show. Check out the July episode 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.
If you are looking for a mid-sized sedan that can get your daily errands completed without killing your pocketbook at the pumps, but at the same time has a sense of style and performance, then check out the Acura TSX. Speed:Sport:Life put this baby through the paces recently and found it to be a great handling machine with some top of the line features for the price.

The Krider Racing Nissan Sentra SE-R takes second place at the world famous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in the ChumpCar 7.5 hour enduro.
After lunching an engine at the ChumpCar Laguna Seca event in November 2011, the team throws a new engine in the car and heads back to “The Corkscrew” to take second place just weeks later. After some countless hours nerding out in front of a laptop the post-race compilation video is up and viewable here. Read More
Rob Krider hosts the Club Racer show on GoRacingTV.com which shows racers the how-to for car prep.
Every racer has an off-season to do list. It is usually those few items that did not get taken care of during the year because other matters were more pressing (like an engine throwing the piston out of the side of the block). In the winter, you can finally get around to maybe throwing in some S Gear gauges or updating your old racing harnesses with new ones from I/O Port Racing Supplies. Or, if you are not in the mood to hang around the garage and stress out about how hard your unused Hoosier tires are getting in the off-season, you can always numb your mind with some Mexican beers and think about summer. Of course, in California, winter is summer, so we skip all of our off-season to do lists, go to the beach and procrastinate. It is a good time to kick back, turn on the iPad and flip through the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) new e-magazine called SpeedNews. Yes, I am glad you asked, you will see coverage from Speed:Sport:Life in future issues. Read More
At the last ChumpCar race you blew the engine up on your racecar going up the hill toward the corkscrew at Laguna Seca. Bummer. Now your racecar is sitting dead in the garage and your wife is storing Christmas decorations on it –a felony in some states. Your old sponsor isn’t answering your e-mails, because he knows you’re just looking for free parts for the nuked motor. You, good Sir, are a long, long way from your next checkered flag. Or are you? Borrow your wife’s Hyundai (since the motor in that car still runs) and head over to a K1 Speed near you for some adrenaline pumping wheel-to-wheel racing action!
