There's nothing centrist about the senior senator from Virginia
Topic - Rob Kauffman
There is no clearer example of the disconnect between NASCAR and its teams then the fight earlier this year over the procedures to cool cars down during qualifying.
Michael Waltrip Racing will run only two full-time cars next season because of the loss of sponsor NAPA, part of the fallout from its attempts to manipulate a race to get Martin Truex Jr. into the Chase.
The new owner of Alexandria's Old Town Theater says the historic space is being renovated to restore its 1914 appearance and become a Vaudeville showplace.
Michael Waltrip Racing made a commitment last season to become a player in NASCAR's top series _ an effort that would require more money, more people and a change in philosophy for the entire organization.
"That's a big obvious issue that's out there that the teams really have no influence or control over," Kauffman said of the $8 billion in TV money that is split with the tracks (65 percent), teams (25 percent) and NASCAR (10 percent). "We're going to focus on stuff we can do. If someone wants to discuss any big picture issues, we're happy to discuss and engage in a constructive way."
Team co-owner Rob Kauffman said the cuts were across the organization and not limited to Truex's team.
