Playing in NASCAR's infield
- ALABAMA STATE LINE — Turn it up. Three twenty-something buddies are hurtling down I-20 in a rented recreational vehicle, howling along to Lynyrd Skynrd's Sweet Home Alabama as we roll out of Georgia. The cassette is one of several key purchases made in a morning stock-up session at Wal-Mart. As our 30-foot rental RV shakes its way down the highway like George Clooney's boat in The Perfect Storm, we hear a rumbling from the refrigerator: The beverages carefully stacked will form an avalanche the first time we crack the fridge.
