Finding double trouble

Sometimes the more you travel — regardless of how much you normally enjoy it — you realize you’d be better off if you just stayed home. Or as in my case last weekend, if we’d headed home when we should have, we'd have come out in the black. Hindsight, however, is 20-20. At least that’s what they say.

Sometimes, whether it’s 20-20 or not, hindsight can drive you crazy. And most of the folks who know me know that I don’t easily let things go. Perhaps I should.

Last weekend my brother MORE

Remembering Mark Fields

Connie Putnam

MERIDIAN, Miss. — Josh Putnam’s voice cracked as he talked about losing his close friend Mark Fields. Standing in his hauler in the Whynot Motorsports Park pit area on warm Saturday afternoon, Putnam, of Florence, Ala., had no problem taking a break from smashing springs in preparation for the 27th annual Coors Light Fall Classic later that evening to talk about Fields and the tragedy that unfolded in Lawrenceburg, Tenn., a week earlier.

Average isn't good enough

I’d like to think that every time we go to the racetrack to compete we’re giving our best effort. Unfortunately, I know that sometimes, that just isn’t the case. It kind of takes me back to my early college years when effort often made all the difference in the world.

With my 18-year-old son now a freshman in college, I’m reminded almost daily of the struggles I had early in my college career. Riley is attending Motlow State Community College, which is only about 12 miles up the road from MORE

Managing your storage

Robert Holman/DirtonDirt.com

No matter how much space you seem to have, for some reason it seems like you always need more. That’s true with the smallest of things, like a backpack, to the largest, like a home or a shop, and all things in between, like cupboards and closets.

Growing up, we always seemed to have plenty of cupboard space in our kitchen. Each time I opened a door looking for a snack, I was almost always disappointed. Fast forward 40 years and the cupboards in my house are bursting at the hinges. I’m not MORE
