DID EARNHARDT HAVE HEART CONDITION?

Mad Mikie over at Laidback Racing has written an interesting post about the death of Dale Earnhardt Sr. The author read the official accident report and found that Earnhardt had quinidine in his system when he crashed at the 2001 Daytona 500. Quinidine is used to treat an irregular heartbeat, also known as arrhythmia. Tracing back to 1997, when Earnhardt blacked out during a race in Darlington, Mad Mikie thinks it is possible that NASCAR kept the illness a secret from fans. It is quite a conspir ...

In an unrelated note, I hate this column and can’t be happy enough for an off week so I can present some random prop bets to drown my sorrow for a bit. Odds Kyle ...

NASCAR FANS VOTE REPUBLICAN, BUT YOU KNEW THAT ALREADY

 Sarah Palin’s next stop … The Masters? The National Journal reports that a new study gleaned from interviews with hundreds of thousands of Americans finds that NASCAR is the third-most popular sport among Republican TV viewers.
