Sep 18 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Here’s some evidence that the engineers at Nissan’s technical center in Stanfield, Arizona, know how to have fun. As shown by the Nissan-supplied video below, that group needed a hauler to help them shuttle stuff around the grounds, and while they could have just used an old Titan or Frontier, they instead chose to build something far, far more rad.

Sep 17 2014 9:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What a race! We saw a record-breaking number of teams show up for the car inspections on Friday, what seemed like most of those cars break down during Saturday’s race session, and exciting battles in all three classes on Sunday. Here’s what happened.
