NASCAR Richard Childress Punches Kyle Busch Kansas Speedway 6.4.11
Kyle Busch and 65-year-old car owner Richard Childress were involved in a
physical confrontation after Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
race at Kansas Speedway.
NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp confirmed they are looking into it.
Childress approached Busch and struck him with his fist in the garage area
after the race, according to the Charlotte Observer.
The fight was broken up and insults were exchanged before Childress put
Busch in a headlock and hit him again, the newspaper said.
Busch finished sixth, a spot behind Richard Childress Racing driver Joey
Coulter after the two had a spirited late battle for position. Busch drove
up beside Coulter's truck following the race and tapped it.
When asked what happened between the two, Coulter joked that, according to
the spotters, Busch was just congratulating him.
Bill Janitz, a spokesman for Busch, told The Associated Press in an email
that "there won't be any comment tonight." A phone message left for Richard
Childress Racing seeking comment was not immediately returned.
RCR driver Clint Bowyer won the Trucks event to snap Busch's three-race

Robert Yates Sells Davey Allison 92 Daytona Car
Davey Allisons T-Bird, Dale Earnhardt's Wheaties Car -- and Rusty Wallace's
car sell at the 2010 Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction. Statistically,
1992 was Davey Allison's best season in Winston Cup racing. And yet, it was
also a very painful and heartwrenching season. Davey started sixth in the
1992 Daytona 500 but was probably not quite as fast as the Junior Johnson
teammates of Bill Elliott and Sterling Marlin. But the race would change
dramatically on lap 92 when Elliott, Marlin, and Ernie Irvan triggered a
multi-car crash at the front of the pack. Fourteen cars were eliminated,
but Allison—and eventual runner-up Morgan Shepherd—somehow made it
through the mess. He would lead 127 laps to join his father as a Daytona
57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that
was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County
Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss
Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it
wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly
the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than
Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey
to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters
from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as
beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part
of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to
what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds
of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died
in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer
than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney
and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based
UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin
the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage
after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an
unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under
her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy
cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at
UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat
designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr.
Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing
is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could
include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special
events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the
Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.
