In 1970, everyone took a two week vacation once per year. It was as American as apple pie. Two of the era's great, economical mid-sized cars perfectly suited for such epic road trips were Ford's Torino and the Cutlass from Oldsmobile.

Even as Americans grill hot dogs, gawk at fireworks and celebrate freedoms we don't have, the Environmental Protection Agency recently planned to hit the motorsports community with a devastating blow. Although the agency now appears to be backing off the original plan, there is still no clear legislation to prevent it from reappearing.

The EPA's Clean Air Act, which has afflicted decent people since 1970, is an ever-growing but never totally understood mass of vagueness that the EPA calls upon any time it craves yet another vast expansion of its already criminally overreaching power.

When I was doing it, I got paid to drive. You were judged on your merit as a driver... not the check that you brought,” Darren Manning said while sipping an after-hours beer and relaxing in the lobby of his company's new facility on the west side of Indianapolis.

It's a tough pill to swallow, but Codie Rohrbaugh Racing driver Stephen Cox will miss the June 18 event at Columbus Speedway and give up the lead in the Super Cup Stock Car Series championship points race. Instead, he will rejoin Scott Hoke, John Kraman and Bill Stephens to co-host NBCSN's coverage of Mecum Auctions from Portland.
 
“We knew this could happen, and there was never any question what my choice would be,” Cox said. “Mecum is my top priority and I'm happy about that. I've had to walk away from several possible championship titles over the years in order to accommodate television and I'm glad to do it in order to be a part of something as special as Mecum Auctions.”
 
After finishing second at Midvale Speedway, leading the most laps, leading at the halfway point and winning the pole position, Cox has a five point lead in the championship chase over Midvale winner Brent Nelson and former series champ J. J. Pack.

 

Midvale, Ohio (June 5, 2016, source - Super Cup Stock Car Series) – During Saturday’s Hilltop General Store 75 presented by Frontier Tool and Equipment Rental, the field of competitors were not only evading impending storms in the sky but also within the abundance of action on the track.  Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson dodged and survived numerous close calls to come away with his third career Super Cup Stock Car Series victory.  It was his first at Eastern Ohio’s Midvale Speedway.

 

“We thought we had it won three different times and still had to fight for it,” Nelson said, adding that he could not recall being part of a more eventful conclusion to a race.

 

Some dramatic altercations set up by a yellow flag with only two laps to go resulted in four green-white-checkered attempts on the 3/10-mile, but the turning point to the race came even earlier.  A long green flag run during the middle stages of the 75-lap event began to get interesting as 2015 Midvale winner Larry Berg was tracking down the leader and teammate Stephen Cox, who set a track record earlier in the evening with a lap time of 14.758 seconds.

We don't always get what we want. Many 1974 sports car buyers still wanted a Mustang Boss 429 or a Hemi Cuda. What they got instead was a choice between one government mandated, smog controlled, regulation-laden nightmare or another equally pitiful bureaucratmobile.
