Denny Hamlin Feels Your Pain

Who says rich people are different? Just take Denny Hamlin -- he understands your pain. Why, when young Denny went to the fillin' station the other week? Don't you just know but he had to fill his own gas tank! And you know what's worse? Ol' Denny, he didn't know how to unlatch the gas cap on his Range Rover! Now don't that just beat all?!?Now, you cup is half empty folks, you read that ESPN.com article and you're flat disgusted that Denny has little people who usually handle irkso ...

Three Cheers For Tommy Baldwin

Ed Hinton, one of the NASCAR press corp's grizzled veterans and a guy who knows whereof he speaks, has repeatedly suggested that much good can come from the current bleak economic climate that confronts the sport.

If that ...
