One Fans’ View On NASCAR & The Confederate Battle Flag

This observer could be described as a son of the south. My ancestors settled in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina in the 1700s. By the 1850s, my great-great grandfather set out for Texas and settled on land near Marshall that is still in the family today. Eli McCoy took up arms under the banner of the Confederacy, marching with the 19th Texas Infantry. Like so many soldiers fighting that war, he died from illness in 1863.

Throwback Thursday: The Silver Fox Was Golden At Michigan

  They called him the Silver Fox- cool, daring and sly. Racing in the shadows of Richard Petty, David Pearson was still accomplished enough to earn a spot alongside "The King," "The Intimidator," and "The Wonder Boy" as one of the all-time greats. Among his favorite haunts was Michigan International Speedway, Pearson's personal playground in the 1970s. In a stretch that ran from 1972 through 1978, "The Silver Fox" won eight out of a twelve possible races, including five out of six ...
