    Darlington is older than Martinsville? How is that?

    FANTASTIC piece on Harvick and his move to SHR! As a fan of Harvick for 14 years, this was one of the best and most accurate articles I have read in some time! Thanks so much for your extensive work! Bravo!!

    Is Kahne in danger of losing his ride to Chase Elliott? All the talk was about Elliott being the successor to Gordon but with Gordon's resurgence that isn't likely anytime soon. So where does Chase fit in? As good as he is at learning on the fly and winning at tracks he has never been to. Why wouldn't he be good in a Sprint Cup car?

    Jerry, whats up with Danica? She seems scared to do anything and seems content to be in the back of the pack. She looks like shes intimidated and lost. Not agressive at all. I has high hopes for her at the start of the season but not now.

    Hi Jerry! Oh darn, I was really hoping I’d see you next week. :-( Hopefully in 2013! I hear what you're sayin; though - looks like we’ll likely be watching NSCS from Rattlesnake Hill for the first time!

    Jerry, I just tried again. It's not even showing any extra media slots to pull. Sorry for the frustrations. The best bet would probably be to post on the B/R forum: http://forum.bleacherreport.com/forum/category/bleacherreport-forum-topics-the-br-site-bug-clearinghouse/. Thanks.
