Talladega track to be repaved for '06 Chase: Talladega Superspeedway officials announced Wednesday that the legendary Alabama racetrack is set to be repaved for the first time since 1979. In the quarter of a century of racing that has since passed, the track has firmly established itself as the most competitive track on the circuit, holding both the record for most lead changes in a race (75, May 6,1984) and the record for most leaders in a race (26, most recently April 22, 2001).

Sherman gets replaced

During a rain delay late last season, Jimmy Spencer had a great chance to witness to all of us about Jesus Christ and he did a wonderful job. I wish Jimmy the best of luck in racing and in life.

Drivers, teams sound off on cheating issue at Daytona

My idea of racing would be to remove restrictor plates and let's see who can travel 500 miles the fastest

Kurt Busch,

Stock car racing evolved from drunken moonshiners out running the police. Maybe Kurt was doing the throw-back thing

Kurt Busch,

Crown Royal is one of his sponsors. It's nice to hear that a driver uses the product he endorses. Bottoms up, Kurt

Formula Ferrari

I never miss a chance to bad mouth Bernie Ecclestone and his merry band of idiots. The rule restricting each car to one set of tires per weekend turned formula 1 into formula zero. The safety factor alone should have vetoed this rule. Formula 1 was, at one time not so long ago, a collection of the most technically advanced machines in the world. Today, there are swamp buggy races that are better organized than the FIA. I would like to see active suspensions, automatic gear boxes, ABS, all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering and turbo charging back in F1. Make the cars the stars instead of a weekend at Bernie's

Bernie Ecclestone is an arrogant,egotistical S.O.B. who should be dethroned and exiled to a go cart track in Chernobyl.
