No one in local racing circles has heard anything about the possibility of a NASCAR track being built in the Eastern Panhandle because the investors involved in the venture are not involved in racing, state Sen. Herb Snyder and a state racing official said Wednesday.

Seems to me if the Chevy folks would spend as much time making their cars faster as they do whining about how Fords have an unfair advantage, we might be treated to a competitive NASCAR race sometime this season. Not that I'm trying to start anything.
