The world has changed from NASCAR to Dakar, from truck driving to skin diving and from songwriting to bullfighting.
I don’t know whether it’s worse or better. I expect age tends to favor the former, but I try to roll with the punches.

Like the late Dirt Late Model racing legend Mike Duvall did many times over in his historic career, Brandon Overton drove with the tenacity and endurance of a true Southeastern champion on Friday night and put it in Victory Lane at Cherokee Speedway.
For the third time this season, he and the Rum Runner Racing team have defeated the Outlaws in their home region. Chris Madden and Chase Junghans held strong inside the top three all race long to capture the final two podium spots.

I’ve got some friendly advice for NASCAR. If there’s a race on the schedule that is uniquely appealing, keep it unique.
The “roval” at Charlotte Motor Speedway is uniquely appealing. The fall race previously paled in comparison to the sport’s longest race, also unique, there on Memorial Day weekend. Running on a course that circled most of the oval, then snaked through the infield, gave the Double-R (roval race) a niche.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be, speaking words of wisdom, let it beeeeee.

Martin Truex Jr.’s Monster Energy win in Richmond, Va., is the latest rage in NASCAR because the feeding-frenzy form of journalism dictates that rages must tumble down with the other dominoes on a fairly regular basis.
What’s more, Truex led a 1-2-3-4 parade of Joe Gibbs-owned Toyota, which set off a countervailing rage of its own.
Grab the Chevys and Fords, Ma. Take cover. The Gibbs boys just showed up outside, and I’m satisfied they’re heavily armed!
