INDIANAPOLIS, Sunday, July 5, 2020 – Kevin Harvick took the third drive of his career on his street of dreams – Victory Lane at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway – after winning the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 Powered by Big Machine Records.
Harvick became just the third driver to win this crown jewel race of the NASCAR Cup Series at least three times – joining five-time winner Jeff Gordon and four-time winner Jimmie Johnson — as he also won last year and in 2003. He is the first back-to-back Brickyard winner since Kyle Busch in 2015 and 2016.

INDIANAPOLIS, Saturday, July 4, 2020 – It was Hoosier Heaven at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway after a wild finish to the Pennzoil 150 at the Brickyard.

Serenity Acres is a beautiful farm with the most pampered horses and ponies. I went there to do a story on Melissa Cain for the Indy Times. What I found was one of the most charming farm owned by Judy & Alex Cameron. Beautiful prestine fields for the horses. 5 barn cats, 3 horses, 2 adorable ponies who love to be around people. Judy had a building that needed to be painted and decided she wanted something whimiscal and unique. She found Melissa Cain. Here is the interview done with both Judy and Melissa.
