Kentucky "News" and Notes

--NBC gets the rights to NASCAR. NBC hires Jeff Burton as an announcer. Jeff Burton won a bunch of rain shortened races in the late-90s. NBC's first two race weekends are plagued by rain. Coincidence?  Read the novel.

--You know the weather is wreaking havoc with your sport when JJ Yeley is on the pole for a national touring event.

--Kentucky promoting its worn-out bumpy asphalt would be like the Steelers doing commercials about Heinz Field's crappy playing surface.

--Justin Boston is departed Kyle Busch Motorsports after a dispute over sponsorship and team personnel. Erik Jones, meanwhile, is being kept at KBM for his pissy attitude and whiny interviews.
