CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The distinguished NASCAR Hall of Fame class of 2018 includes a formidable array of eclectic talent: NASCAR’s first champion, arguably the sport’s most innovative crew chief, racing’s most recognizable voice, the Camping World Truck Series’ all-time leading winner and a revered engine-builder-turned car owner.The first member of the 2018 class inducted on Friday night at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Red Byron, was a man of many “firsts.” He won NASCAR’s first sanctioned race on the Daytona Beach Road Course in 1948. That same year, he claimed NASCAR’s first season-long championship – in the NASCAR Modified Division.A year later, Byron won the inaugural championship in NASCAR’s Strictly Stock Division, which later would evolve into the current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. In his title season, Byron drove for team owner Raymond Parks, a fellow NASCAR Hall of Fame member.Byron competed for the last time in NASCAR racing in 1951, and though he died in 1960, he left an indelible impression as the sport’s first champion.As 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. put it during his introduction of Byron, “He set the foundation for the rare few who capture the most coveted prize in motorsports, a championship at NASCAR’s highest level.” RELATED: Every Hall member | Full Hall induction coverage | All about the Class of 2018Dale Earnhardt Jr, who is about to embark on a broadcasting career with NBC Sports, introduced the second inductee, Ken Squier, the 1970 co-founder of the Motor Racing Network. It was Squier who called the watershed 1979 Daytona 500 – the race that put NASCAR on the map – for CBS television.“He made watching a race an introspective portrait of our own journey,” Earnhardt said of the legendary broadcaster. “And tonight, fittingly, the NASCAR Hall of Fame becomes part of his journey.”In fact, it was also Squier who coined the nickname “Great American Race” for NASCAR’s most prestigious event, a moniker that has endured.“This is always a thank-you time speech,” Squier said with his usual wry humor. “Some of us are inconceivably lucky to call these folks friends. I think we all call them heroes. And I’m feeling like an odd duck in a fancy flock of geese, let me tell you.”Kevin Harvick, who spent his formative days in NASCAR racing sleeping on Ron Hornaday Jr.’s couch, introduced his mentor and friend as the third new member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.A competitor in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series since its inception in 1995, Hornaday posted a remarkable record, winning a series-best 51 races and an unparalleled four series championships.RELATED: Hornaday Jr.: ‘It’s the freakin’ Hall of Fame’Former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series director Wayne Auton provided a touching tribute to Hornaday in his induction speech.“More than being in a Hall of Fame, you really need to be in a Hall of Fame of people because of the way you care for everybody,” Auton said to Hornaday. “You let people sleep on your couch that you didn’t even know, and look where they’re at today, and now you are in the Hall of Fame. “Instead of Ron Hornaday, champion, you’re now Ron Hornaday, NASCAR Hall of Famer. And it’s been an honor to get to see all those records you’ve broken, but it’s more of an honor to call you a friend.”Hornaday exulted in the moment.“This is for every short track racer that ever had a dream, ever had a heart, ever believed in anything that you can believe in – this is it,” Hornaday said. “Hall of Fame, and what a class I’m in with.”The induction of three-time champion crew chief Ray Evernham was the proud duty of Evernham’s son Ray J Evernham and four-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon.As a testament to Evernham’s work ethic, Gordon spoke of his first championship and the lackluster final race of that 1995 season.RELATED: Evernham praises Gordon | Evernham calls Rainbow Warrior ‘greatest ever’“We didn’t perform very well,” Gordon said of the finale in Atlanta. “But we did win the championship. And to tell you what kind of person Ray Evernham was, I think he enjoyed that championship for maybe a split second before he started thinking about what was wrong with that race car.“And he showed up at the shop the next morning, the day after we won that championship, to figure out what was wrong with that race car. And he found it.”Evernham, who revolutionized the sport’s approach to pit crew performance, credited Gordon with a large part of his Hall of Fame resume. But Gordon wasn’t the only one.“I think that’s when you look back at your career you realize there’s so many people that helped you, whether they taught you something or gave you a few bucks, a pat on the back or a vote of confidence,” said Evernham, who teamed with Gordon to win 47 Cup races.RELATED: Full transcript of Yates’ written speech | Jarrett discusses reading speech The most emotional moment of the evening accompanied the posthumous induction of team owner and engine builder Robert Yates, who, stricken with cancer, wrote a message for the special occasion before his death on Oct. 2.Dale Jarrett, who claimed the 1999 championship driving for Yates, read and recorded the message Yates left for the NASCAR community to hear. Edsel B. Ford II, a member of the board of directors for Ford Motor Company inducted the champion car owner.“When I started in racing, this was not the goal,” Yates said through Jarrett. “All I wanted to do throughout my career was win races. I would always say, ‘I don’t race for the money, I race to win.’ For me, that’s what it’s always been about, but to be part of this year’s induction class is a true honor. There are a lot of other people I want to thank because this isn’t really about me; it’s about those who gave me the opportunity to do something I love.”NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France and International Speedway Corporation CEO Lesa France Kennedy accepted the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions to NASCAR on behalf of their uncle, James C. “Jim” France.Chairman of the Board of ISC, Jim France most recently spearheaded the $400-million Daytona Rising project that transformed Daytona International Speedway into the world’s first motorsports stadium.“The Landmark Award was designed to recognize people behind the scenes who you may not see often but make a big difference, and that’s exactly what my uncle has done through my whole career,” Brian France said.“And the most important thing he’s done that I would tell you tonight is make sure our family stays going in one direction helping grow NASCAR in a good, smart way, and I have the utmost respect. So it’s really proud for me and my sister and the rest of his family to recognize my Uncle Jim for the Landmark Award tonight.”At the NASCAR Hall of Fame dinner that preceded the induction ceremonies, veteran motorsports writer Norma “Dusty” Brandel was honored with the Squier-Hall Award for Media Excellence. Brandel, from Glendale, California, was the first female reporter to cover the sport.Asked if she thought in 1972 that she would ever be the recipient of NASCAR’s most distinguished media award, Brandel said, “No. Never. I think I’m going to cry.”
Author: CNN Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. NORFOLK, Va. (CNN) When Sarah Sims’ daughter complained she was being bullied in elementary school, the Virginia mother grew concerned.Sims reached out to administrators at Ocean View Elementary School in Norfolk, Virginia, where her daughter is in fourth grade, but she said she got no response. In September, Sims decided to investigate on her own.She sent her daughter to school with a digital audio recorder in her backpack, hoping to capture audio from the classroom. School officials found out and confiscated the device, which had been in her daughter’s desk recording the school day.Now, Sims, who is herself a student at Virginia’s Norfolk State University, is in trouble with law.MORE: Bullying has a cost to society you may not even seeEarlier this month, Norfolk police charged Sims with a felony — intercepting wire, electronic or oral communications — and with a misdemeanor — contributing to the delinquency of a minor.“I’m a full-time student, so I don’t always get the opportunity to be on the premises, and I thought that this would be a good way for me to learn the environment,” Sims, 47, told CNN’s Don Lemon on Monday.She faces up to five years in prison if convicted on the felony charge.“I was appalled when I heard these charges,” Sims’ attorney Kristin Paulding said. “I was shocked to see that the school would decide to go to the police department and ultimately charge this mother as opposed to sitting her down and having just a simple conversation about what were her concerns and how could the school alleviate those concerns.”Paulding said the recording device “was a way to make sure that that classroom was a safe place” for the child. Because it was confiscated, Paulding said she doesn’t know what — if anything — the recorder caught.CNN reached out to Norfolk police on Monday but authorities declined to comment on the case. Police have not released a criminal complaint.Virginia is a one-party consent state, meaning it is legal for someone to record others when the person recording is involved in the conversation or when one of the parties in the conversation has given prior consent.The Norfolk commonwealth’s attorney’s office, which would prosecute the charges, said it just received the case report and hasn’t begun investigating, according to spokeswoman Amanda Howie.Norfolk Public Schools referred questions to Norfolk police.“We are unable to comment on any pending legal matters,” school district spokeswoman Khalilah LeGrand said in an email.Sims said she doesn’t know why the school called the police and not her when the incident happened last month.It wasn’t the first time her daughter had been bullied at the school, Sims said.In third grade, her daughter “had been kicked in her stomach and hit with a jump rope on the playground,” Sims said, adding that the school didn’t notify her then.“She became very anxious about attending,” Sims said. “I removed her from the school because she was refusing to go. She felt like she wasn’t protected.”Sims said her daughter tried to remain positive when she faced bullying again this school year.“I did not want to just side with my child. I wanted to be fair,” Sims said.MORE: Florida House bill targets bullying in senior communitiesWhen her daughter complained, Sims tried to encourage her at first.“I felt like I kind of let her down a little bit because I wasn’t believing her,” Sims said.Sims’ daughter still attends the school but is now is a different class.A court date is set for January 18.

The rehabilitation of Nimba feeder roads is gaining momentum with most of the decade-long inaccessible areas of the county being connected by the ongoing road works.Acting Project Management Chair, Peterson Walker, told the Daily Observer that the road work resumed simultaneously at three different locations, including the northern, the central and the southern parts of Nimba.He said the set of machines responsible for the northern region are currently rehabilitating the road from Karnplay to Gborplay (a border town where Charles Taylor’s rebellion was first headquartered).In the central region, the work is taking place in Buu-Yao District while in the south, the work is connecting Sarlay with Boe Bonlay and then to Kparblee at the border with La Cote d’Ivoire.Mr. Walker said, “Currently the road linking Karnplay to Gborplay is almost complete and we are going to move the machines to Karnplay City to open up the alleys/streets so as to create avenue for free flow of goods and services.”The rehabilitation work came to a standstill after the county leaderships, including the County Legislative Caucus went at loggerheads soon after Superintendent Fong Zuagele was inducted into office.The dispute led to the summoning of both the Superintendent and his assistant for development, by the Plenary of the House of Legislature, where a vote of no confidence was passed against them.The vote of “no confidence” led to the subsequent removal of Development Superintendent, Teeko Yorlay, from his post.At the last County Council Sitting, Nimbaians unanimously projected over US$2 million for development purposes with bulk of the allotted funds going to road development.The resumption of the rehabilitation works has brought happiness to on the faces of the residents.Resident Zaryee Mohnmie said, “The road between Karnplay and Gborplay was well rehabilitated and it has shortened the road to that border town.”If these pieces of road under rehabilitation are connected, it will ease movement to border areas, including the Kparblee District which has been disconnected by the poor road condition, residents told the Daily Observer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Lionel Messi will now have to defend himself from the accusations related to corruption and fraudFC Barcelona striker Lionel Messi will have to stand trial on corruption charges after a judge in the Catalan town of Gava rejected the footballer’s appeal against having to appear, it was confirmed Friday.Messi had alleged and had been backed up by the Spanish anti-corruption judge that he had not known the details of the economic activities of his father and representative, Jorge Horacio Messi, which are under investigation, reports Xinhua.The judge had considered that the Argentine international had been “at the margin of the economic, contractual and tax management” carried out by his father, who is also accused of fraud as the result of allegations regarding his son’s image rights for the years 2007, 2008 and 2009.The judge in Gava considered it to be a “subjective” opinion that Messi had known nothing about his father’s management of his accounts and he will now have to defend himself from the accusations in a trial which is certain to be in the headlines both in Spain and abroad.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: We need to play like Barcelonaby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek feels they need to learn from their 0-0 draw with Southampton.Loftus-Cheek has said Maurizio Sarri’s side need to work on playing a little more like Barcelona in training.“Teams are coming here and sitting back and it’s difficult to break them down, because it’s so tight,” the England midfielder told Chelsea TV.“We need to get on the training pitch and work on trying to get balls in behind and work on playing against a deep back four.“We need those clever movements in behind, even though they are deep. One of those diagonal balls over the top, like you see Barcelona do a lot.“We need to work on that. It’s about having patience as well, because it’s so frustrating at times. You can’t get that space to open them up.“I think we need to get used to it, because we’re playing well at times, so teams are going to come here and do that – and away as well.”
