* Meanwhile, in left-hand-turn land, DEI keeps having a heckuva month. Just a week after Dale Earnhardt Jr. said he was leaving the NASCAR racing group named after his late father, his No. 8 team was rung up by NASCAR for illegal modifications to their Car of Tomorrow (do they make those in Disneyland?). Dale Jr. finished eighth at Darlington on Mother's Day but is being busted for 100 championship points that dropped him two places to 14th in the Chase standings. The crew chief was nailed for a $100,000 fine and a six-race suspension for improper rear wing mounts (don't ask me, I barely know where the gas goes).
