((Plans for a mountaintop parkway date back to 1909 and the start of construction on the Crest of the Blue Ridge Highway, but that project stalled at the start of World War I and wasn't revived until the Great Depression.

A fight between North Carolina and Tennessee over the southern half of the parkway delayed the project for two years, but construction began on September 11th, 1935 at Cumberland Knob just south of the Virginia, North Carolina line.

The New River Valley's "Race of Champions" last night turned out to be an eye opening experience for a number of those in attendance.

For starters the Winston Cup regulars found out that home boy Stacy Compton is still the man to beat on his old track.
Stacy won both segments of the 30 lap shootout with Brett Bodine, Michael Waltrip, Kerry Earnhardt and Ernie Irvan. All of the drivers spent over an hour and half signing thousands of autographs before they took a spin on the track. One legend who opted to sign and NOT drive was Harry Gant - who was genuinely overwhelmed by the response of the fans.

Kerry Earnhardt didn't have to travel too far either. Kerry's wife, Renee, is from Rural Retreat.
