EDWARDS FLIPS KESELOWSKI AT ATLANTA

Only a real jerk could make Brad Keselowski look like a sympathetic character. Congratulations, Carl Edwards. You have done the impossible. Down 156 laps because of an earlier crash with Keselowski, Edwards turned - and subsequently flipped - Keselowski with three laps to go at the Kobalt Tools 500. It was clearly an act of revenge. Edwards admitted as much, although he said he did not intend to send Keselowski airborne. In a television interview, Keselowski said that Edwards almost killed him a ...

KURT BUSCH WINS KOBALT TOOLS 500

Kurt Busch snapped Jimmie Johnson's two-race winning streak with a green-white-checkers win at the Kobalt Tools 500. The win was Busch's second straight spring victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

On the plus side, the series would welcome sophisticated Kentucky sports fans -- like these gentlemen wh ...

Elliott Sadler Weighs In On Jimmy Watts

This Jimmy Watts thing, it's just the gift that keeps on giving. You might think our fascination with his idiocy should have run its course by now. Four days on, however, his split-second stupidity remains a veritable fount of material; on this Thursday, we can thank Elliott Sadler for revitalizing this sucker (that's Sadler, above, in the No. 38, doing what God never intended in a Cup car). Had Elliott muttered a simple eh, let's move on already yesterday, I'd have nothing.But, no. ...

Jimmy Watts Needed to Be Taught a Hard Lesson

Years ago, my son decided it wouldn't be unreasonable to shove a dinner fork into a power outlet. Fortunately, my wife and I, we have no class, so our cutlery is cheap -- the kind with white plastic handles riveted to Grade Z steel you buy at Woolworth's? Anyway, the plastic served to insulate my little genius from the worst of the shock, but Einstein did fry the outlet and just generally scare the crap out of himself. And me.  Years ago, my s ...
