A Brief History of Women in Motorsports

The first motorized tricycle race for women that we know of took place as early as 1897. Comparing these pioneering ladies to modern day racers shows one major similarity, courage. The Sports Techie community blog readers and followers represents thousands of women across the planet as equals to men. Yet, to this day motorsports are associated with dudes and are usually seen as a type of sport showing masculinity at its finest.

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas – Sports Techie blog.

Sports betting and gambling may soon be legal outside of Las Vegas perhaps by next year in states like New Jersey from all indications. NBA commissioner Adam Silver to former MLB commish Fay Vincent are making statements indicating they are betting on this sea of change happening  in the near future even though an ongoing lawsuit by the leagues, NCAA and the United States Justice Department says otherwise.
