Memories of my first Southern 500
  by Dave Grayson
Like many of you, I spent a Friday and Saturday evening in front of a television set watching NASCAR Live On Fox  from Darlington International Raceway in South Carolina. After all, any race track with the names "the track too tough to tame" and "the lady in black" was bound to turn up some excitement. It was apparent that the racing gremlins that sent a lot of bad luck in the direction of Kevin Harvick in recent weeks didn't get the memo that he was racing at Darlington. Harvick led 238 laps of the Bojangles Southern 500 to win a race that for decades has been known as "the grand daddy of them all."
