    I just opened that email from The Don, asking me to post it everywhere. One less place to put it.

    What are you talking about? Bob Baher and Bruton Smith bought North Wilkesboro together with the intention of taking one Cup date each (NHIS already had one), which is what they did. How is that screwing him?

    According to this article, it wasn't that silky smooth. Makes a little more sense because all the references to the sale made it fairly obvious that Bob and Bruton didn't fork out the cash for each one's share at the same time. There was also a disparity in the prices that each paid.

    Key paragraph:

    "It was all fast," Bahre said. And surprising, too, given the animosity that once existed between the two men. Looking to bring a NASCAR date to his palatial Texas track, Smith bought out one of the two families that owned old North Wilkesboro Speedway. But Smith couldn't seize control of the whole thing, because the other family sold to Bahre. The two men barely spoke until they agreed to split the track's two dates, with Smith taking a first to Texas and Bahre adding a second to New Hampshire.

    Wow, that's an entirely different account of what I thought had happened. I know the Bahre family pretty well since I used to drive for Bob's brother Dick in NASCAR and ARCA. Funny how this stuff surfaces years later when it makes a better story.

    Yeah, there's still two things that smell funny.
    One is the $14,000,000 selling price. An unofficial rumor put the figure at $300,000,000. More realistic for a track with two Cup dates.
    Also hard to believe that both NH dates will stay put.
