    An arrow atop a portable road sign has been blinking for months, pointing toward the Bronson Speedway. Letters spell out the words, "Opening Soon."

    Soon hasn't came around the final turn fast enough for owners Chris and Ann Young of Young Unlimited Inc. After purchasing the track in early February from Mike Cope, they planned to open in late March before hitting roadblocks.

  • Fuller named All-American

  • Gramps vs. The Brat

    Let us consider the strange case of Richard Childress and Kyle Busch.

    Childress is the last vestige — full-time, anyway — of old school in NASCAR team ownership. He and Dale Earnhardt made a perfect match. Childress interacted as easily with Bud Moore and Junior Johnson as he now does with Rick Hendrick and Roger Penske. Childress's success is grounded in the way that he manages to bridge the generations.
