NASCAR's Toughest Tracks [INFOGRAPHIC]

NASCAR Tough Tracks

Every sport has their "big game" and, usually, it is a grand finale with the best teams competing at the very end of the season to claim the most respected title: champion. But not for NASCAR. Instead, they start the season with the most prestigious race, the Daytona 500, which also offers the largest pay day for the top finishers. For many racecar drivers, their goal is to one day make it to Victory Lane at the Daytona 500. Unfortunately, many of them fall short of this goal due to the difficulty of the track and for some, a string of bad luck. Even though Daytona International Speedway has a reputation for its massive wrecks and high speeds, it isn't the only race track on the NASCAR circuit that drivers have difficulty navigating. We decided to take a look at some of the toughest tracks in NASCAR, along with the drivers who have been fortunate enough to take the most victory laps at each of these raceways.

Haunted Hotels: A Ghost Hunter's Road Map [Infographic]

Haunted Hotels Header

Planning your next vacation? This map of haunted hotels is a ghost hunter's paradise. Take a tour of the United States and stay in some of the most haunted hotels in each state. You'll have to sleep with one eye open in some of these places so we sincerely hope you don't plan on taking this time to catch up on sleep. The accounts of paranormal activity in each venue varies, but the one thing they all have in common is some of their residents have never checked out. Prepare to see apparitions, be touched in your sleep by ghostly hands, or even levitated. (Okay, that last one sounds pretty cool!) Some of these permanent occupants enjoy playing tricks and others will not hesitate to tell you to get out of their hotel. If you are feeling brave, we've created a printable map with the shortest route to visit all the hotels in the contiguous states. We also did our homework and whipped up an infographic to help you learn a little bit about each of these haunted hotels, including the spookiest rooms to request at each location, in order to best prepare you for your journey!

Costumes for Siblings Header

Halloween is the perfect time of year to dress up the kiddos in themed outfits for their yearly trick-or-treating debut.

DIY Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Costumes

Trump and Hillary DIY Costume

The election season is upon us and America is full of conflicted voters who have yet to decide if Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump should be our next President of the United States. Clinton, if elected, would become the first female president in history, and Trump would become the first president to come straight from a corner office. In a race this close, the position is anyone’s for the taking right up to Election Day. There are still a few presidential debates between now and then, including another one this Sunday the 9th, that can hopefully make the decision easier on voters come November 8th. In the meantime, we can be entertained by the creative folk that have made the internet such a...
