NASCAR DAYTONA CAR RACE EVENTS & American Ethanol engines Florida USA in June

NASCAR’s Daytona 500

Baseball has the crack of the bat. Football, the collisions of helmets and pads. But NASCAR—NASCAR has THE rumble.

The noise isn’t to much. Loud sits in your ears, pushes uncomfortably on your ear drums. The rumble goes beyond that. It burrows deep into your brain, bounces around the grey matter between your ear holes until it’s impossible to tell if the cacophony of 100 percent American Ethanol engines is invading your mind or emanating from it.

Here at the high cathedral of Daytona International Speedway during the 61st running of the Daytona 500, there’s no way to escape the rumble.

Expect Stiff Competition at The Annual International Hair Freezing Contest in February. Canada.

The annual event at Canada’s Takhini Hot Pools draws people from around the world competing for the title of the world’s coolest ’do’

Tendrils of steam curl up softly from the searing waters of Takhini Hot Pools, fed by a natural hot spring located just northwest of Whitehorse in Canada’s Yukon Territory. For decades, locals have taken to the mineral water there, high in calcium, magnesium and iron, for its therapeutic properties and warming capabilities, but more recently, Takhini has become the battleground for one of the world’s most hair-raising competitions.

Known as the International Hair Freezing Contest, the friendly tournament began as an extension of the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous, an annual festival held each February that celebrates winter sports like dog sledding and snowshoeing. Seeking a reprieve from achy muscles and the wrath of winter’s chill, athletes and spectators alike would soak together at Takhini. Noticing an opportunity, in 2011, a former manager challenged visitors to style their hair into frozen hairdos and take selfies. Employees would then select the wildest coiffure of the bunch.
