TALLADEGA — It was another episode of that long-running Talladega soap opera, “The Dumb & The Reckless.”
The Talladega Superspeedway grandstand was but a fraction full, as ticket sales were limited because of the pandemic. There were barely 20 of us permitted access to the press box to chronicle the events in person. There was not even the hint that weather would affect the proceedings. The notorious infield was closed to its typical hedonistic hijinks.
