Column: The legend known as Red Farmer
Placeholder Image
When I stopped by to visit Talladega Superspeedway, my drive took me past the wildly popular Talladega Short Track, a one-third mile, red clay oval that is located within spitting distance of the big track. Two things made me smile as I passed: the red tire marks where cars had pulled out from the track onto the asphalt road the night before, and the thought of Red Farmer. I love Red Farmer and I have for 30 years.
