My Brain on NASCAR - June 14, 2016

This week I'd like to say a few words about a guy no one has ever referred to -- in my presence, anyway -- as their favorite driver. No one has ever spent half an hour gushing to me about his charitable endeavors, which for the record supports health care, education, career training and rehabilitation. No one has bored me by rehashing the hilarity of his sitcom cameo appearances (which never happened). A lot of words fly around in reference to this guy, but very few of them are positive.
