One of the drivers rounding the track during the Bailey's 200 at the New River Valley Speedway is trying to change the complexion of the sport.
Morty Buckles hopes one day, his driving will be the center of attention. He's one of a few African American drivers so right now people seem to take more notice of his race, than his ability.

Callers in one Virginia city are getting an unexpected -and costly - surprise... if they're trying to reach the Salvation Army. The yellow pages in the Hampton Roads phone book feature an ad listing the wrong number for the Salvation Army - it's actually the number of a sex line. A Verizon spokesperson is apologizing for the mixup... but says a Salvation Army official signed off on the ad before it was published. The sex line callers are charged almost three dollars a minute.
