    Tony Stewart once drove in the Indy 500 and then flew to Charlotte and raced in the Coca Cola 600. He just got elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame alongside with Joe Gibbs and Bobby Labonte.

    I lost interest in NASCAR when racers like Jr & Tony retired.

    In sports the old always give way to the young sooner or later. You didn't lose interest in football when Johnny Unitas retired did you. Just gotta find new guys to root for. For now I'll go with Chase Elliot, son of the legendary Bill Elliott. He is with Hendricks Motorsports and drives a Chevy.

    Awesome Bill from Dawsonville!
    I was actually in Dawsonville at the track this past Saturday. Did not see an Elliot.

    I think this is one lap of Monaco with Ayrton Senna, "the King of Monaco," in 1990. Just crazy.
