From the Marbles - NASCAR

Saturday will mark the ninth anniversary of 9/11, and at the Richmond race, NASCAR will be participating in the kickoff of a yearlong countdown to the 10-year anniversary. (Should we use the word "anniversary" in connection with 9/11? Seems a bit off.)

Anyway, a few weeks back, Denny Hamlin and Kasey Kahne visited Ground Zero and spoke about the horrors of that day. Above, they're flanked by Joe Daniels, 9/11 Memorial President, and Richmond International Raceway President Doug Fritz.

9/11 seems like forever ago already, but seeing those images again -- and we will all weekend -- brings it all right back. If you took a moment during the race to remember the events of that day, well, it wouldn't be out of place.
