    Kyle Busch continued an improbable run toward championship contention Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, leading three times for 19 laps to win the 22nd Brickyard 400.

Sprint Cup driver (and triathlete) Landon Cassill wanted to know the toll of continued exposure to 140-degree heat, and was happy to share it on Twitter. After the race, Cassill reported his 26th-place finish included a loss of 15 pounds or 10 percent of his pre-race body weight. During the race, Cassill said he consumed 110 ounces of fluids and 1,100 calories via various snacks.

You know, use the words everyone, always or never in describing the latest central point in any current tirade that is the front runner of the conversation I may be embroiled in.
