MAN IN NASCAR HAT ATTEMPTS TO ROB BANK

This one crossed my path somewhat after-the-fact, but in the interest of maintaining full NASCAR Fan Crime Spree coverage, I am duty bound to report the following. On Oct. 6 a man wearing a NASCAR baseball cap attempted to rob a Kannapolis, N.C., Wachovia bank. Police say the man handed the teller a note demanding money. (Take that, big-city snobs who think we're all illiterate.) The man, who did not display a weapon, apparently did the old finger-gun-in-the-pocket trick. He quickly became start ...

DUSTIN LONG INTERVIEWS BRIAN FRANCE

Virginian-Pilot reporter Dustin Long scored a one-on-one interview with NASCAR chairman Brian France on Sunday before the Dickies 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Long asked France about television coverage, the car and the Chase. Long recently caused a little trouble with his Frankly Speaking series in which he asked Larry McReynolds, Jimmy Spencer and Kyle Petty to let loose on what's wrong with the sport. Among the highlights of the France interview: France said TV broadcasters should shut the ...
