Miss Iowa and the Wallace Brothers.

Katie Connors delivered a strike.  Okay, it was high and inside, but not bad for someone who didn’t grow up playing softball.  Miss Iowa threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game on Friday night.  Andy Fales was there.  Check out his story on whotv.com

Rusty Wallace told me Thursday night both Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski have put their feud behind them.  I have a hard time believing there won’t be another incident before the end of the season, even though both drivers are on probation. Both will run in Saturday’s U.S. Cellular 250 at the Iowa Speedway.  Look for fireworks.

Rusty Wallace may be the face of the Iowa Speedway, but the most charismatic member of the family is his brother, Kenny.  Kenny met with the media Thursday night, beer in hand, and had everyone in stitches for the better part of 20 minutes.  NASCAR has indeed gone corporate in recent years, but the “good ole’ boy” element of the sports is still what makes it so entertaining.
