Concerning Tony Stewart, NASCAR Is (Lug)Nuts

So, let me get this straight. Tony Stewart raises a safety concern and gets fined $35,000 by NASCAR for it. Then NASCAR changes their rules, stating that, going forward, all lugnuts must be tightened. Yeah, that makes sense. Shoot the messenger, then do what he said. Tony Stewart isn't always one for saintliness, but doesn't it say a lot about his character that he will pay his fine anyway, and the money raised from the NASCAR's driver's council to pay it for him will be donated to charit ...

Nothing Hid The Empty Seats At Bristol Motor Speedway

Did you see the empty seats at Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500 Sunday? Yikes! They.Were. Everywhere. Sure, 165,000 seats make for an enormous venue, but I'd be surprised if attendance was at a third of capacity. It's a shame, because I actually thought the racing was pretty good.
