I was happy to hear that JEGS is stepping up to do some NASCAR sponsorship.
Bill Kimmel Sr. was leading the race and heading down the backstretch when all of a sudden his Chevelle was a big ball of flames from the firewall back.

The segment that TNT did last Sunday (June 13) on Davey Allison brought some memories flooding back.
One of the best comments at Michigan came from Mike Ford, Denny Hamlin’s crew chief, when NASCAR threw a debris caution as he was running away.
