On Thursday afternoon, the biggest area sports news took place that may not be so big for most Cincinnatians/Kentuckians. Jerry Carroll and his partners choose to sell Kentucky Speedway to Speedway Motorsports Inc., all but assuring a Cup race by 2010 and as early as 2009.
Not that many people are likely excited about this in the football blogosphere, but me, I'm stoked. Watching a race on television is one thing. Watching it at the track is a totally different experience. The smell of tire smoke, the rumbling of engines, the beer and the speed are perfect combinations. Like some dreadful Neal McCoy song.
