Graduate of N.C. State University with an English degree. Lifelong fan of the Wolfpack and the ACC as a whole (even football). My favorite sports are baseball and football, but I have an appreciation for all sports and a thorough understanding of most.

I worked for the News & Observer in Raleigh, NC for two years and often covered ACC football, basketball and baseball along with the Hurricanes, Railhawks and minor league baseball.

    You're welcome, Cory! And sorry for the late response, by the way.

    I don't know where the conflict with the stats is either, but NASCAR.com releases a "stats advance" prior to each race, which is what I've been double-checking your numbers against. It's interesting that the numbers/ratings would match but that the order of drivers sometimes does not.
