The future looks . . . odd

Sporting News;2/24/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 6, p40
The article focuses on events related to the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. In February 2006 driver Dale Earnhardt appeared in six Budweiser commercials, four Wrangler advertisements and a Navy spot in the Daytona 500 and won the race with a last-lap pass of Jeff Gordon. Tony Stewart in April 2006 showed up for the Aaron's 499 at Talladega. Greg Biffle won his 10th straight race in May 2006, but nobody noticed because the media can't get enough of rookie sensation Denny Hamlin, who had three top 15 finishes.
