Auto racing fans rejoice. If you’ve always wanted a handy device to let you know when the next race is, now there is a smart phone app that will keep you in the know.

SpeedWeekly Magazine has developed an app which will give you information such as start times, location, which network is broadcasting the race and eventually the winner of the race through your handy iPhone.

This app will cover the eight major racing series from around the world, such as Formula 1, NASCAR, ARCA, Grand Am, American Le Mans, IndyCar, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series, and the Daytona 500.

“This new SpeedWeekly App is a major advancement for race fans on the go,” said Rick Bradham, Publisher of SpeedWeekly Magazine. “Other Apps may offer TV information about a specific network or racing series, but ours is the first to cover all nationally-televised races for eight of the world’s most popular auto racing series.”

So no matter where you’re traveling to, this app will give you all the racing information that you’d want to keep yourself connected with your favorite racing series.

We can’t say how your spouse will feel about this app on a vacation though.

General Motors has just announced that later this month, the Cadillac Shield program will be put in place. This is an extensive warranty service which includes oil changes and tire rotation for the first four-years or 50,000-miles, and a five-year, 100,000-miles powertrain warranty, including 24/7 roadside assistance.

OnStar’s Directions and Connections plan is also included for one-year and it now comes with its own smart phone app. Cadillac will also have its own special app, which will help owners locate their car in a parking lot, among other things.
