The Carroll County girls responded in a big way, rallying to win the Indiana State 12U Babe Ruth Championship over the Fourth of July weekend in Corydon, Ind. The Dixie Chixx defeated Corydon, 12-8, Sunday in the championship.

    Noting the ample number of empty seats at Kentucky Speedway for the Quaker State 400, then harkening back to the Car-mageddon traffic fiasco in Sparta in 2011, Charlotte Observer motorsports writer Jim Utter raised the prospect that Bruton Smith’s Speedway Motorsports, Inc., might move Kentucky’s Cup date to Las Vegas.

    The words “Let’s go racing” do not make my blood pump or my stomach churn with excitement and nervousness for my favorite driver. Now, tell me the Dallas Cowboys are on TV, and I become an absolutely elated and tense stress ball, determined that I have the power to will “America’s Team” to victory.
