The world is made up of two kinds of people--those who follow
NASCAR racing and those who wonder why anyone would. But even
the latter group had to grasp the racing world's shock Sunday,
when legendary driver Dale Earnhardt Sr. was killed in a crash

box above is what is called a Recommend-it Box. I have put it
here so that it will be easier for you to forward this Page and
share it with others. Here is how it works. You click on the box
and another comes up on your screen. There will be a place for
you to put your screen name and address and the name and address
of everyone you want to email it to. There is even a place for
you to put a small personal message if you want to. Then all you
have to do is click on the SEND button and off it goes, a sort
of little gift of love from you. Don't worry if you find out later
that you have forgotten to send it to someone. You can go back
and use the box just as many times as you wish. It goes with the
Page so the people you send it to can use it also. Since this
system pays for itself with usage, I do hope you will consider
using it often.
