    Have you ever had a deep-fried bacon-wrapped bourbon ball? Neither had Kyle Busch, until a special media session at the Kentucky Speedway on June 13. In fact, he’d never even had a bourbon ball before.

  • Beshear inspects parking, crowd flow improvements

    Oh, what a year it has been for the Kentucky Speedway.

    After the checkered flag fell and Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch and his team celebrated winning the inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Quaker State 400, Speedway officials patted themselves on the back and then immediately began scratching their heads about what to do to alleviate the traffic and lack of parking issues that kept thousands of fans from making it to the Sparta track.

  • Tortures of travel time

    When it comes to traveling, my oldest daughter thinks she’s cursed.

    I don’t know about “cursed,” but she definitely has had her share of mishaps.

    Last summer she and granddaughter Caroline took a trip from their home in Virginia to visit my other daughter in Charlotte, N.C.

    The three of them went to Charleston, S.C. and Caroline barfed, which put a damper on their plans. Then Caroline stayed sick, ending Alison’s plans for a side trip to visit a friend on the way home.

  • Energy production, use high in Kentucky; research ongoing

    When it comes to energy, it could be said that Kentucky burns the candle from both ends. That’s because only four states produce more power than we do, and only seven use more per person.

    That’s not surprising, of course, since Kentucky plays prominent roles nationally in coal production as well as manufacturing, especially in the auto and aluminum industries.
