The 'Star-Spangled Banner' was not protested by members of the NASCAR community during their Cup series race outside Concord, N.H. this weekend. Part of the explanation may come from the strict warning several team owners gave in the wake of both comments by President Trump and exhibitions by NFL players. NASCAR icon Richard Petty, a former driver and current team owner, told the AP that he wouldn't accept any protest of our nation's colors. 'Anybody that won't stand up for the anthem ought to be out of the country,' he said. 'Period.' Additionally, longtime owner Richard Childress said that any driver or crew member protest will 'get [them] a ride on a Greyhound bus.'

Parker Frederickson turned twenty one on Tuesday. To celebrate he won Saturday's sprint feature in Charleston, IL. Out of five visits to the IL oval Frederickson has garnished two wins and two second place finishes. Frederickson's passion for running the top has earned him the title of 'The Highside Flyer' from his growing fan base. The memories of a challenging first half of the season with a totaled primary car and soon after a blown motor have faded with the current Maxim chassis and Mopar power plant bringing satisfying results. Congratulations to the Kokomo, IN based Frederickson team. By Dudley Balmer

Lost another one. Marvin Carman was a pavement master. He built many a offset sprint car and USAC banned him. So he built a upright sprinter and smoked them on the first outing. Then parked the car and told USAC he wouldn't be back as he preferred to race with pros. He will be long remembered by the racing family.

Modesto parents are upset that their 5-year-old son's 'pretend play' resulted in him being suspended from school, and said they want the disciplinary action removed from his permanent record. Jackson Riley attends the Great Valley Academy public charter school in Modesto and was suspended for a day for making terrorist threats, The incident occurred Aug. 31, Jackson's father, Ian Riley, told The Bee. He got a call from the school saying the kindergartner had refused to take off his backpack and, when asked why, said there was a bomb in it that would explode if he did so. Riley said he was asked to pick up Jackson, who would be given a one-day suspension. 'I said, I'll come get him, but I'm not sure what a suspension will do for a 5-year-old. They said, 'It's what we have to do.''

I got a call last night that A J Hopkins had received severe back injuries and would likely be out the remainder of the season. Hopkins had been on a hot streak since his unexpected ride into the parking lot earlier in the season. We pray for a quick recovery and that he will soon be competing again.

With the left rear tire going flat, the final three laps of the 30 lap Apple Fest Sprint feature was a handful for race leader Sye Lynch (24) as he barely holds off hard charger Dan Kuriger (08) for the lead position. Blasting across the finish line, the young 20 year old Lynch goes on to capture his first ever Sprint Car feature victory nailing the win. Grandparents Jean and Ed Lynch joined Sye in victory lane. Ed Sr was a tough competitor for years before Ed Jr took up the reins of the family car. Now it is Sye's turn to bring home the checkers.
