Everything I Needed to Know in Life I Learned at Daytona

That "racing strategy" quote is one of my favorites from now-retired NASCAR driver Sterling Marlin.

Sterling made that statement after being asked about his approach to racing on NASCAR's two fastest tracks - the Daytona International Speedway in Florida and the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama - where he was one of the greatest drivers ever.

      Dear Steve:
      Your warm and kind comments are a gift. Thank you so much. I was honored to be his fan, and (like you) to be a member of his fan club. I was thinking about this again tonite when I saw Sterling was featured as part of the FoxSports documentary "Untold Stories Daytona" … Which was superb.
      I greatly appreciated your comments. Your wife sounds as if she was just as kind as you.
      I hope we hear from you again, sir.
      Very respectfully yours,
