Insider Report: Parking lot drifter fail
We all know by now that parking lot drifting is a bad idea, but some folks never learn. I just came across this video from 2011 that I have never seen before, so I figured it was worth sharing.

Justin Bell interviews Travis Pastrana. Sort of.

The Pothole Song
With Winter about to take its toll on Toronto’s roads, I had to laugh when I came across this tune from Irish crooners Richie Kavanagh and by Seamus Moore about the potholes in Ireland!
There’s big ones there’s little ones there’s some a duck could swim

You can ask your county counselor but he wont take the blame
Where is the worst pothole you have ever seen?
