Mike Kerchner

With nearly 60 entries and 18 manufacturers entered Saturday’s 12 Hours of Sebring is shaping up to be a beauty of a race, but someone explain to us why these cars, teams and drivers need so much practice. Practice, disguised as “testing,” began Monday and runs daily through Saturday’s race

Lynyrd Skynyrd is playing a pre-race concert prior to the Labor Day weekend Sept. 4 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. We’ve long wondered why the Southern Rock legends aren’t on the bill for every NASCAR weekend? It’s a match made in heaven
