Fast tracks to nowhere

Despite living in a pretty rural place, I get a lot of questions about my race car and the races I attend. I’ve found that most people are truly interested in what’s going on. Perhaps that’s just a byproduct of a small town. I’ve lived in Lynchburg, Tenn., for more than 12 years and before anyone knew my name, I was that guy who lived by the park with the race cars in the driveway.

There have been a handful of times where we have had three or four race cars sitting around, either covered MORE

We still believe

It was Sept. 23, 2003. I was sitting at my desk catching up on some work when my cell phone rang. On the other end was Richie Davis.

On Aug. 8 at Florence Speedway in Union, Ky., the Hall of Fame will induct its 15th class since being established in 2001. The NDLMHoF is housed in a modest building located just outside of turn four at the half-mile northern Kentucky oval that annually hosts the Sunoco North-South 100. | Complete North-South MORE

Shakespearean success

Jim DenHamer

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

Oh that Willie. He certainly had a way with words. It’s doubtful, however, that upon reflection of their recent accomplishments, neither Bobby Pierce nor Jonathan Davenport will conjure up any of William Shakespeare’s prose.

Both Davenport and Pierce (pictured with his father) have raced their way into the history books with a pair of noted achievements in the last six weeks. Davenport — arguably the sports hottest driver after sweeping a MORE
