Holidays seem to bring out some people’s creativity, and this past Father’s Day was no exception.

Scrolling along Facebook, I was treated to numerous old photos and tender wishes from my friends to their dear dads. Even better, I discovered cartoons, poetry and even music that…

The topic of NASCAR’s discretion when calling debris cautions hasn’t been far from the surface for the last couple of seasons. It seems pretty safe to say after last weekend’s race at Michigan, that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.

Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr.…

As the holy month of Ramadan draws to an end, I can't help but feel nostalgic for it already. I can understand how some might find it strange that anyone could miss a time when they must fast for at least 16 hours a day, but Ramadan is so much more than that.

Those trips were clear through to Miami. The man…

This time of year, I try to hit a lot of shady patches.…

I’m a pretty avid Twitter user.

As a journalism nerd, and a sports nerd, most of my follows are reporters (sports and otherwise) and athletes. Predictably, most of them skew toward NASCAR, with a solid portion consisting of drivers up and down NASCAR’s touring series, as well as crew…

A recent story on the radio outlined some reasons why fewer teens are working summer jobs. As a parent of teenagers — and having joined the year-round workforce at 15 myself — I found myself wishing the story had more focus on teens who do work jobs.

My oldest daughter, Carly, would…

I’ll openly admit it, guys — I didn’t see a single second of Friday’s Truck Series race at Dover.

I had to work, spending part of my afternoon out on South Central’s football field throwing passes to wide receiver Emannuel Lewis (check Monday’s Reflector for more…
