The 2014 F1 season has started out with a bang. A popular name from the past has dominated the first 4 Formula races, winning them all. The name is MERCEDES!

Lewis Hamilton (World Champion 2008) of team Mercedes has won 3 of the thrilling races. Hamilton captured races 2, 3, and 4; Malaysia (3/30), Bahrain (4/6), and this past weekend’s event in China (4/20). His teammate Nico Rosberg has been almost as equally impressive by winning the inaugural opener in Australia on March 16th, and finishing 2nd at Malaysia, Bahrain, and China. Interesting as it is, it is Rosberg who leads the Driver’s Point standings with 79 points, with Hamilton following closely with 75 points. Hamilton had engine problems in the Australia race and went out on 2 laps, obviously failing to score any points. The two driver’s impressive showings have catapulted Mercedes to a huge lead in the Constructor’s series points with a total of 154. Trailing in second place is Red Bull-Renault with 57, followed by Force-India Mercedes in third place with 54 points. Listed below are the statistics for the first seven teams to have scored any points, as well as the drivers who have scored points.

Position          Team                                         Total Points

1.                  Mercedes                                          154

14.   Daniil Kvyat              Toro-Rosso-Renault                4          

Watch for Sebastian Vettel ( 4 Time World Champion 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) to make a bid to move up from 5th place as Vettel is already one of the greatest drivers in F1 history. Some other interesting facts are Nico Rosberg is the son of former World Champion Keke Rosberg (World Champion 1982) and rookie Kevin Magnussen is the son of former F1 legend Jan Magnussen.

Sunday, April 13

When Sunday rolled around and all the money was on the table, the racers prepared to battle it out for the prestigious honor of being the "Super Chevy Show Champion" in their respective classes.

As a result, no overall winner would be proclaimed due to rain shortened eliminations.


The Jr. Dragster saw Brianna Moore, Tyler Poindexter and Justin Poindexter having to split the event. R.T. Turbines D.O.T. Raymond Kendall, Michael Crass and Todd Berry split the event. The Bracket 1 class still had 12 drivers remaining and Bracket 2 had 11 remaining with no declared a winner because of the rain shortened event.

[Review] The Hottest Modern-Day Muscle Cars

Maybe it's been a long time since the golden age for muscle cars started, when cars like the Oldsmobile Cutlass 442, the Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jet, the Pontiac GTO, the Mercury Comet, and the Plymouth Road Runner appeared for the first time, but it doesn't mean that people don't like them or buy them any more. As a matter of fact, seeing the 2013 and 2014 model years, it seems that muscle cars are making a come back, and they might be on the brink of a new golden era. What's more, they are now much more powerful, faster, more reliable, more fuel-efficient, and much safer than they were in the 1960s. Following is a list of some of the best modern-day muscle cars, that have the potential to be just as popular as the most successful performance cars built by the U.S. Big Three more than 50 years ago.

 2013 Mustang Shelby GT 500, Muscle Car

2013 Ford Shelby GT500

This is surely one of the most powerful muscle cars ever built.
