Having grown up with Pocono Downs in my backyard, I keep a special place in my heart for auto racing (I still have the picture of me at 7 standing next to Mario Andretti's car). So I was happy to find Nascar News by Travel Widgets. Nascar News displays the RSS feeds of several racing news outlets, including Fox Sports, Nextel Cup, Busch Series and Truck Series. Click any news item to read more detail in your browser.
Incidentally, Travel Widgets makes some other interesting widgets, including a few webcam viewers, like the Oregon coast and Washington coast, several lighthouse cams (the closest one to my house I could find was Nantucket harbor), a hurricane tracker and NOAA weather radio. Check them out.
