Another newspaper drops NASCAR writer  While many in NASCAR travel to Las Vegas for this week’s banquet, I’m headed on a different path -- Dustin Long

My position as Landmark’s motorsports writer will be eliminated, and I will not be retained. Thursday is my final day. This is my final blog entry.

Thank you for everything. It’s been a heck of a ride the past 13 seasons. I hope I enlightened and entertained you with my coverage.

Before I go, I want to pass along one hope for you. No matter what you do, enjoy life. Our lives are shaped by the experiences and people we meet. I’ve been fortunate to hike the Grand Canyon, watch John Williams conduct an orchestra and attend various sporting events with fellow writers, among other things.

Don’t get the wrong idea, most of the time I was working (some told me too much). Even if you don’t or can’t travel, there’s still much you can do. Look around your community. How well do you really know your neighbors? How can you help make this a better place? There’s so much you can do to enrich your life and that of others. Don’t be afraid to take that chance.

As I move on, I look ahead and not behind. Life is a journey and this is my path. It’s unsettling, sure, but I could enjoy opportunities I would have never imagined.

Thanks again for taking the time to read my stories and chat through the years. I’ve enjoyed our time together. Hampton Roads
