Thanks to the oil crises of the 1970s, new rules were introduced for the 1976 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans—the most significant being that all cars needed to be capable of at least 7 mpg. A side effect of the rulings was that a number of factory teams pulled out.

In response, officials put out invitations to IMSA and NASCAR teams in the hopes that they could fill in the missing ranks. However, only two teams answered the call.

All-wheel-drive works for more than just cars and trucks, as it can also benefit steam engines as well.

Meet the Shay Locomotive. In place of a direct drive, the Shay used a car-like system of steam-powered cylinders and a driveshaft that sent the locomotive’s full power to all of its wheels, giving it the necessary extra grit to handle steep mountain railroads.

Sure, the main focus in racing is often about the competition and being the best you can be, but one of the most enjoyable parts of it has less to do with racing and more to do with sound.
