Eco-Friendly LiFePO4 Batteries for Powersports

Eco-Friendly LiFePO4 Batteries for Powersports Image

We’ve all heard of Lithium-Ion Batteries, they had become industry standard for anything electrical and motorized. Before the LiCoCO2 battery, Lead Acid batteries were the staple but were noted for their environmental toxicity and unreliability. But Lithium-Ion's superior performance came at a cost as well, they are also not environmentally friendly. Recently, Lithium-Ion batteries have become surpassed by LiFePO4 Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries which allows cars, trucks, and ATVs to utilize a much more efficient and reliable energy in accordance with the new and improved automotive advances and regulations. Moreover, powersports are particularly impacted by the need for a better source of power. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, quarantine lifestyle helped to escalate sales in...

Bluegreen Vacations Duels Set Field for Daytona 500 Image

It was a muggy night as NASCAR Cup Series teams prepared their cars to complete in the legendary Bluegreen Vacations Duels to determine Sunday’s starting positions 3 thru 40 for the 63rd annual Daytona 500. NASCAR traditionally splits qualifying into two parts that included one-lap qualifying run for the front row (this year) and two 150-mile sprint races known as the Daytona Duels. Qualifying for the “Great American Race” held earlier in the week set the front row with Alex Bowman earning the pole with his Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Bryon alongside. Although the majority of the field are locked-in to the 500 based on qualifying times, eight teams entered the Duels fighting for the final four spots in the 40-car field. Duel #1 at Daytona International...

Busch Wins the Busch Clash at Daytona

Busch Wins the Busch Clash at Daytona Image

Tuesday night at Daytona, Kyle Busch claimed his first win of 2021 at the Busch Clash. Always a fan favorite, Rowdy passed the 2020 NASCAR Cup champion Chase Elliott coming out of the chicane just yards before the finish line. Ryan Blaney had chased down the number 9 of Elliott on previous lap to take the lead with only two laps remaining in the 35-lap precursor to the season opening Daytona 500. Elliott entered the Clash having won the last four NASCAR Cup road races and wasn’t going to let Blaney just pull away. With Kyle Busch moving himself up to third, Elliott dove under Blaney going into the chicane for one final chance at the win but an overly aggressive move midway through the chicane took both drivers out of contention when the two made contact and Blaney spun into the...

Chase Elliott Wins 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Championship

Chase Elliott Wins 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Championship Image

It may not have been the most exciting race of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series, but it was a nail-bitter from the drop of the green flag. In fact, before the flag fell, Chase Elliott got his first piece of bad news. His Rick Hendrick-prepared Chevrolet failed two pre-race inspections, which sent the 24-year old son of Hall of Fame driver, Bill Elliott, to the rear of the 39-car field for the final race of season at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday. But, crew chief Alan Gustafson, who was also looking for his first NASCAR Cup Championship, settled his young driver and the team went to work. By the end of Stage 1, Elliott had worked his way to third place. Then, the kid from Dawsonville, GA, moved up to second by the end of Stage 2. He methodically moved the NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet to the lead...
