It's hard to believe there could have been a car faster than the 48, but it sure seemed the 24 was. But then concrete can turn into clay.
Speaking of imagining: imagine Nascar without the Busches. How drab that would be. Kyle appears to have succumbed to the Nascar-imposed lobotomy, but will it take for the long haul? There was a time when it appeared Kurt had ' got his mind right ' too, but that lasted only a bit longer than the effect of the ' shock shop ' on Randle P. McMurphy. So there's still hope for Kyle's return.
I'm not 100% certain, but I think I actually heard ol' D.W. properly pronounce ' Kenseth ' for what may be the first time.
There's a good chance there won't be many mosquitoes around Dover Downs for a while. ( Just groping for material here. )
6.3.65: At Nashville, Ned Jarrett's factory backed Bondy Long Ford was demolished en route to the track when the van towing the car went off the road in a thunderstorm. Jarrett got a Ford from Jabe Thomas and finished 2nd to Dick Hutcherson.
If Ned was in the booth we'd know what's up with Bobby Gill.
