The Chevrolet Corvette is having some fun with its 60th anniversary 427 Convertible. 

In a new video the 'Vette is shown literally blowing out all 60 birthday candles.  How you ask?  Speed of course.  The 'Vette is shown ripping through a tight corner on a track, extinguishing each of the 60 blue and white alternating candles.

Dodge returns to NASCAR with 2013 Dodge Charger

SRT Motorsports is showing off its 2013 Charger that will compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series next season.

NASCAR has eased rules on where manufacturers can put glass and solid body pieces, according to Chrysler.  That allowed designers and engineers to design the racecar version of the Charger to more closely resemble production cars.

"We're excited about the results of the collective efforts of NASCAR, Dodge and the other manufacturers to create the 2013 Sprint Cup cars. The 2013 Dodge Charger race car design is a great example of what we look forward to seeing on the race track next season. We thank Dodge and all the manufacturers for their efforts, as we see the results here today with the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Dodge Charger," said NASCAR President Mike Helton.
