Burton's New Ride

The Virginian-Pilot reports today that Gov. Warner has appointed NASCAR driver Ward Burton to the Virginia Board of Game and Inland Fisheries. Burton is a native of South Boston, Va and founder of the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation.

As you may know the Dept. of Game and Insalnd Fisheries has been the subject of some recent scandals involving misuse of state funds.

Incidentally, those NASCAR teams are crazy for passing over an experienced, old-school driver like Ward in favor of these "young guns" who don't know jack about racing but think they own the world. I miss seeing Ward race and hope someone will give him another shot next season.
