Richard Childress is tied for second place for number of car owner victories at Chicagoland Speedway with two wins out of the 11 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events. Kevin Harvick scored back-to-back wins for RCR in the 2001 and 2002 Tropicana 400. In 35 starts at the 1.5-mile suburban Chicago tri-oval, Richard Childress Racing teams have combined for eight top-five and 17 top-10 finishes...
In 24 previous Nationwide Series appearances at Chicagoland Speedway, Richard Childress Racing has four wins at the 1.5-mile track, including a victory with Elliott Sadler in July, in addition to wins with Kevin Harvick in 2007 and 2005 and Johnny Sauter in 2002. RCR drivers have completed 95.1 percent of the laps attempted at the track (4,570 of 4,806), with 264 laps led.
Two of Wake Forest's top targets play at Seminole Ridge (Fla.) High School, the once-committed Kyle Shortridge and Rayfield Dixon. Dixon, a 6-foot-3, 203-pound outside linebacker, was offered by the Demon Deacon staff in May and has them listed among his favorites, but that may no longer be the case after he was unable to make a trip to Winston-Salem last weekend.

Florida State’s real season starts with tomorrow’s game against recent nemesis Wake Forest, a game that I honestly do not expect to be especially competitive. Thanks to West Virginia, FSU comes into the game off two FCS teams and chomping at the bit to play legitimate competition, while Wake Forest is a bit banged up after a narrow win over North Carolina.
Cory Helms was one of the committed players at the Wake Forest-North Carolina game on Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound center, who committed to the Demon Deacons in early June, plays at Milton (Ga.) High School and traveled to Winston-Salem after his team's game on Friday night.
