On Sunday, the splendidly refurbished North Wilkesboro Speedway was filled with excited and proud fans.  There were NASCAR legends on hand, including a spirited D.W. in the booth, whose energy came through clearly throughout the broadcast.  It all made for a great Cup race at NASCAR’s ‘newest’ historical track. Of course, there were still commercials during the broadcast, as there is no getting around that.
