Our sport's wedge issue


As the racing season has progressed, the number of drivers I’ve heard complain about the bodies on the current Late Models has grown. Most have registered complaints on deck heights.

There have been general grumblings about the growing use of technology to find more speed in our sport. Like many, I think it would be novel to eliminate some of it, mainly due to the ever-increasing cost that is associated with it. But I’m in agreement with most I’ve talked to when I say that it’s so MORE

Passion place, Mississippi


When Mack Gordon penned the lyrics for the popular song Paris in the Spring, he’d obviously never been to Mississippi in the Fall. Gordon, a Polish-born composer who lived most of his life in New York, was nominated for an Oscar nine times in 11 years.

Seeing how he was entrenched in the fine arts, I’m sure Gordon had his thumb directly on the pulse of Paris. He had to know a little something. After all, his songs have been used in soundtracks of more than 100 films. But the pulse of MORE

During a sermon one Sunday, our pastor said that the rate or speed that time passes doesn’t change as we get older. Instead, our perception of time changes.

It’s amazing how time makes you MORE

From supporting to headliner

By no means do I want to be a doomsday prophet. In fact, unless I’m getting paid for it, I hate making predictions. I mainly hate to because I hate being wrong, which, it’s been my experience that if you make enough predictions, odds are you’ll be wrong a few times more that you’re right.

How many of you braced for the end of the world — or at worst the end of the digital age as we know it — leading up to Dec. 31, 1999? Oh, those Y2K predictions. They had us on the ropes for sure. MORE
