    David Pearson, NASCAR’s Silver Fox, has died at 83
    By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer
    David Pearson, the NASCAR pioneer known as "The Silver Fox" for his cunning craft and a longtime rivalry with Richard Petty, has died. He was 83.


    The Wood Brothers Racing team said Pearson died Monday night in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he was born and lived most of his life. Details were not immediately available.


    Pearson was one of NASCAR's first superstars along with Petty, Bobby Allison and Cale Yarborough, and they raced all over the country as the cornerstone during NASCAR's period of slow growth beyond a regional racing series. Pearson was a three-time Cup champion, his 105 career victories trail only Petty's 200 on NASCAR's all-time list, and he was inducted into the second class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.


    Pearson's career paralleled Petty's and the two combined for 63 finishes in which they finished first and second to each other. Pearson won 33 of the battles.

    These videos you can control the view of are fun to play with. Hold the left button down and drag the mouse to look around and up or down. Great view in a convertible, shifting gears the 'old' way.
    This was last weekend, Historic Sportscar Racing Classic 24 Hours at Daytona. Over 100 cool cars plus an awesome 45 car race with the Trans Am series of 600-800 hp American muscle sportscars.

    Logano, Truex might mix it up

    By George Diaz Orlando Sentinel

    MIAMI BEACH — Joey Logano walked up to the NASCAR Championship 4 media scrum Thursday afternoon, when someone jokingly made a reference to how many friends he can count.
    “My mother is my friend,” Logano said, his signature squinty eyes revealing a smile.

    It was a light-hearted moment in the chaotic circumstances of NASCAR Championship weekend. If the four remaining drivers are playing NASCAR Survivor, Logano is out on an island, barefoot and all alone.
    It’s his fault, of course. He knows it, but hardly runs away from the circumstances that bring him to South Florida in hopes of winning his first NASCAR Cup title:

    He roughed up Martin Truex Jr.’s car during a last-lap bump-and-run three weeks ago at Martinsville Speedway, squeezing it out of the way. Logano’s victory secured a spot in the Sunday’s Final Four mix, which includes Truex, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.

    Having been rough-housed, the normally-affable Truex promised payback. But having since qualified for the Final Four, perhaps Truex may not have quite the itchy-finger.


    Logano, Truex might mix it up

    Stewart’s competitive streak won’t end
    Orlando Sentinel Sports

    A three-time NASCAR Cup champion, he is now poised to become a two-time Cup championship winner as co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing
    HOMESTEAD — Tony Stewart is everybody’s punching bag.
    I kid because I care. As do those closest to him.
    “Is Tony any different …?” I began by asking Kevin Harvick.
    “He’s overweight and needs a haircut right now,” Harvick interrupted.
    “Did you see Tony making such a smooth transition from driver to owner?” I asked Joe Gibbs.
    “I asked somebody, ‘Did he have a lobotomy or what?’ ” Gibbs said.
    Stewart takes the jabs in stride, understanding the quirky mix of sarcasm and love.


    Stewart’s competitive streak won’t end

    Tony's perfect marriage isn't with Gene Haas. Its with Penelope. :) Funny story, this summer while fishing, he sunk a treble hook DEEP into his knuckle. He streamed it live on periscope/twitter while she drove him to urgent care. It was swelling, throbbing, turning black and blue. The staff snuck him in the back door, but the Dr. was afraid to touch it so they had to go to the emergency room. He was really hurting by the time he got it out.

    I found out yesterday the Audi RS3 rides great at 150 mph. We passed most of this traffic easily. I also saw a new Ford GT and Indycar making laps. Looked like a Bobby Rahal ride from the early 1990s
