9 07 2008

Pro tennis player Taylor Dent has a Ferrari-fast serve that’s been clocked at 151 mph (keep in mind Andy Roddick holds the record at 155).

MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Chris Forsberg, Formula Drift pro

8 07 2008

Some people might be under the impression that drifting a car is only something you do in a winter storm. Turns out drifting is an art form, which makes Chris Forsberg a tire-smoking Vincent Van Gogh. Drifting is also an organized sport, and Chris is currently one of the reigning kings of the field as both the current leader of the Formula Drift (or Formula D) professional series and the 2nd most winning driver in Formula Drift history. With that, another MyRide With. Continue…

8 07 2008

You’ve seen NFL All-Pro running back Rudi Johnson on MTV Cribs, you’ve seen him in DUB Magazine, and now add to that list MyRide.com too. Rudi Johnson has been tearing up the NFL as one of the league’s premiere running backs for the Cincinnati Bengals, and before that he was a top college prospect playing for the Auburn Tigers.

MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Vince Neil, Mötley Crüe

8 07 2008

With over 70 million albums sold, the self-proclaimed “most notorious band on earth”, Mötley Crüe, is getting back together for a giant summer tour in support of their brand-new album, The Saints of Los Angeles. Crüe Fest, as it’s being called, will hit 40 cities, and in addition to Mötley Crüe, it will feature bands Buckcherry, Papa Roach, SIXX: A.M., and Trapt. The fact that they will be playing in Edmonton puts to rest the myth that Mötley Crüe were collectively banned from the city (more city tour dates below). While Crüe frontman Vince Neil will probably spend a good deal of this summer on a tour bus, we thought it would be a great time to do a MyRide With.

In addition to his role with Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil keeps pretty busy off the stage as well. He runs a tattoo shop in Las Vegas (Vince Neil Ink), a nightclub in West Palm Beach (Dr. Feelgood’s), a winery in Napa Valley (Vince Vineyards), and a charity dedicated to children’s illnesses (The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation). He also has a ridiculous whip collection which you can read about below. Turn up the volume for another MyRide With. Continue…

8 07 2008

Colin Cowherd, host of ESPN Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd, has spent a good deal of his life sitting in the radio broadcaster’s chair. We reached out to Colin about his time spent in our favorite chair—the driver’s seat.

In addition to his radio show, he can be seen regularly on the segment Spanning the Globe during Sunday morning’s Sportscenter. Throw on your headset for another MyRide With. Continue…





MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Nick Dompierre, Pro Skateboarder

8 07 2008

Red Bull pro-athlete Nick Dompierre is just as comfortable performing an ollie on his skateboard for the cover of Thrasher Magazine as he is blasting off tire-smoking burnouts at the drag strip. In our experience, this makes perfect sense. Action sports athletes are adrenaline junkies no matter what the medium, and when that need for adrenaline fuels a passion for cars too, well, you know we need to do a MyRide With.

Raised in Massachusetts, Nick took on skateboarding seriously at a young age. By the age of 16, Nick had a major sponsor, and by 19, he was nominated for Transworld SKATEboarding’s 2006 Street Skater of the Year. In his words, “I’ll skate any contest,” and after having watched some of his footage on YouTube, we believe it. Throw on your skateboard kicks for another MyRide With. Continue…
