Today, the U.S.A. plays Germany to see whether they’ll be able to advance out of the group stage in the World Cup.

Although he isn’t a mascot for the national soccer team, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship’s Jordan Taylor of Wayne Taylor Racing might be the best symbolism of “‘Merica” as he prepares to send his legendary mullet off into retirement this weekend.

He raised more than $10,000 for charity and also raffled off an opportunity for a fan to cut the mullet this weekend.

Here’s three pictures he took yesterday, plus an Instagram, as he gives the mullet its last ride.

As Lewis Hamilton took another step towards his fourth Formula 1 World Championship Sunday at the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas, plenty of other topics of discussion emerged in the wake of Round 17 of the season from Austin.

Hamilton’s win came as his Mercedes AMG Petronas team claimed its fourth consecutive Constructor’s Championship, Scuderia Ferrari came up short once again despite a valiant effort in second and third, and Max Verstappen’s penalty after the race was the major talking point.

Elsewhere Valtteri Bottas struggled again, the Sahara Force India twins continued to pick up points, Carlos Sainz Jr. made a major positive impact in his first start with Renault, Brendon Hartley impressed on debut at Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean and Haas F1 Team endured a tough weekend on Haas’ home soil.
