WHY THE SPRINT CUP NEEDS A DIRT RACE

The World of Outlaws World Finals was held Saturday on The Dirt Track at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. The four-tenths mile oval hosted the championship round for the touring late models and sprint cars. I had foot surgery right before the weekend and could not attend the race, even though it was a half-hour drive from my front door. But being laid up on the couch can make one a close friend with SPEED TV. And to my good fortune live dirt-track coverage was provided. While taking in all the Texas ...

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.

To those who embrace NASCAR comes a life of tailgating, beer and TV on Sundays and yelling when cars go smash. To those who shun NASCAR comes a life of reasonable physical fitness and hating on NASCAR o ...

PACE CAR DELIVERED BY CHINOOK HELICOPTER

I love Texas. They do everything big there. For example: the pace car for the Dickies 500. It wasn't driven to the track. It arrived by Chinook helicopter, whose crew treated the end of pit road like a hot zone. The pace car driver? It wasn't some washed-up TV actor. It was U.S. Marine Col. Doug Hurley, a space shuttle pilot who is a season ticket holder at Texas Motor Speedway. Credit TMS president Eddie Gossage for keeping things interesting. The helicopter landing and pace car entrance were c ...
