Kansas isn’t exactly known as a state full of scenic beauty, unlike its neighbors Colorado, Nebraska and Missouri. (Oklahoma has its fair share of scenery as well.)

(Next year, with the race scheduled for August on what was the off week between …

Charlotte Motor Speedway’s ROVAL is an interesting proposition.  On paper, it doesn’t seem all that difficult.  In practice, it’s a bit of a wreckfest.  Sunday’s race was rather ridiculous at times.  That said, ridiculousness is perfectly fine here.  It’s how the ridiculousness is covered that is important.
