The Melvins celebrate their 30th anniversary with an extensive North American tour, kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz.
“Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!”

With Craig Lowndes (Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden) having retired early from qualifying and lining up in P12, Garth Tander (Holden Racing Team) and Jason Bright (Team BOC, Holden) line up to start this race behind Lowndes’ teammate Jamie Whincup and Race 15 winner Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden).

The starting three mimics the podium for the first to Australian V8 Supercars’ races at Circuit of the Americas: Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes (Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden), followed by Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden)….likely bad news for the rest of the field.
Each team brought 7 sets of dry-weather tires for the entire race weekend. This prompted some to go out for practice on wets and has left most team with just two sets for the final two races.

Jamie Whincup (Red Bull Racing Australia) took the pole once again, driving his Holden to a best lap of 1:31.9948. Whincup took the spot on his final trip around the track, and did the bulk of his work in Sector 3, having not put up the best time in either of the prior two sectors. Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden) will start Race 16 next to Whincup on the front row.
Whincup’s teammate Craig Lowndes had to pit before the end of the session, leaving him at P12 on the grid with a t...

The Australian V8 Supercars took to the track this morning with one puzzle to solve: how to break the Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes (both Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden), Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden) stranglehold on the podium. Yesterday’s pole winners were Coulthard (Race 13) and Whincup (Race 14), so starting in front of either of them couldn’t hurt.
But it was not to be. Whincup took pole with a time of 1:32.1034, with Lowndes qualifying second 0.4468 sec back and...

The teams started the race with the expectation that tires would last roughly 16 laps of the scheduled 27, with at least one tire change compulsory.
Craig Lowndes (Red Bull Racing Australia) inherited the lead from teammate Jamie Whincup when Whincup made his first pit stop. Lowndes pitted on Lap 15. Whincup stayed in front of Lowndes at pit exit, with pole-sitter Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden) running third.
This remained the Top 3 running order and race-end, with Will Davison (...

The three fastest drivers in the four practice sessions leading up to V8 Supercars Austin 400 at Circuit of the Americas took some time to answer questions regarding their impressions of the track, the series coming to the States, and things racing-in-general. Though Will Davison (Pepsi Max Crew FPR Ford), Craig Lowndes (Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden), and Garth Tander (Holden Racing Team) might be fierce competitors on the track this footage demonstrates that there's also a good deal of cam...
