Here's a link to my story titled Keeping watch over Bobby Isaac. The word watch comes from a Rolex watch that Isaac gave to Humpy Wheeler, the former president and promoter at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Isaac story is part of a series of Hickory Motor Speedway stories I'm writing for the Hickory Daily Record. And it's my best story so far in the series.
This week, I also wrote a column titled Column: An inside look at racers in which I gave my impressions of different drivers. I did leave out drivers like Ricky Rudd and the Burtons. It wasn't intentional; I couldn't mention everyone. No room.
