Feel-good victory

Robert Holman

I love waking up Sunday morning, checking Facebook and finding a post that makes me smile. That was the case when I saw that Cole Smartt won Saturday’s Limited Late Model feature at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala.

Everyone has that group at the racetrack they feel comfortable around. Almost everywhere you go, there’s that certain trailer, or trailers, where you can just walk into and sit for a spell. You can hang out a bit, catching up on things, often things that have nothing to do MORE

Adventures in midweek racing

Robert Holman

With Mother Nature hampering weekend activity, North Alabama Speedway decided to host a Tuesday night race this week. Following yet another rainout, officials at the track near Tuscumbia put out feelers on Facebook over the weekend.

It’s kind of poetic, my two favorites running concurrently with little overlap. Of course you could argue that the other two biggies — football and baseball — really never stood a chance with me because they were smack in the middle of racing season, therefore all I was left with, by no real choice of my own, was basketball.

Back to the grind

About this time every year, I have a conversation with my son Riley about getting back to the grind. For him, it’s a basketball conversation. And the grind means getting back to the gym, returning to the weight room and working on things that will both make him a better player and help his high school team next season.

It seems like we’re always thinking about next season. Living in the present can often be a challenge as we work tirelessly toward a loftier goal, or as we like to call it MORE
