There are those moments when those who consider themselves part of the NASCAR Nation come together as one. It happens each weekend during the long NASCAR season as we follow our favorite driver and hope they are in victory lane on Sunday afternoon; or when there is some sort of controversy, such as an on-track dust up between drivers or a major rule change from NASCAR. Each chooses a side, one driver or the other, or the new rule is great or dumb. Issues that polarize the masses, divide this, what we call, the NASCAR Nation.

Sunday was different.

As the NASCAR Sprint Cup series prepared to run its longest race of the season, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, everyone’s attention was focused on a historic track hundreds of miles away in the center of Indiana.
