We heard about this on Saturday when Lou called a friend in Rocky Mount, NC to make sure he was okay.  So very sad to hear that it killed two people.  We also heard there was quite a bit of damage at the Southern National Speedway, but that can't compare to the devastation to people's homes.   Cry  We were just down in this area a few weeks ago at the track and so was Ken last weekend I believe...
