    NASCAR got its wish with that change, but there’s no change in who dominates the track.

    Kyle Busch led a race-high 163 laps and took the lead from Joey Logano for good with 18 laps to go to win the Quaker State 400 Saturday night.

  • Kids these days

    We old fogeys always like to talk about how soft kids are these days and how much tougher it was in the good old days. We worked on farms in the heat all day and then went to summer practice or to our Babe Ruth games.

    We walked miles in the snow to get to school. We played football with our leg practically hanging by a thread.

    Yeah right.
