    NASCAR and the winter Olympics.

    For those of you who don't know it NASCAR had a lot to do with the mens gold medal in the 4 man bobsled. Geoff Bodine brother of Todd Bodine who races in the truck series used NASCAR technology to design and builkd the winning sled "Night Train". This Link has the story if your interested.

    Thank you Don, heard a little about that during the race, but was snoozing throughout. It is amazing what our athletes endure for us, without us supporting them. Good for Bodine!!!
