Saturday Night Special

The Old Timers race at Bristol lived up to my hopes; not a sterling race (pun, as Sterling Marlin won it), but much-loved faces galore. Rusty Wallace was there, being his usual jackass self. Seventy-year-old J.D Ottinger was third. I don't know how Harry Gant gets a few years younger after ten years have passed.

Best of all was Ned Jarrett and his son Dale in the booth. Father and son NASCAR champions and two gentle and lovely men. That combination just kept bringing tears to my eyes.
