Seniors require a great deal more medication than we did when we were only 45 or 55.

    NASCAR This Week

     

    When I first began writing about NASCAR, the track in North Wilkesboro had 60,000 seats. Then Bruton Smith and Bob Bahre carved it up as if they were diplomats playing Monopoly with conquered land, and the capacity was revealed to be 37,000.
