Pepsi 400 photo: WARNING

    NASCAR-PEPTJ just moved, caption says it's Stewart climbing out of his car after victory.

    Car No. 8 is, of course, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Frankly, I don't know why he was celebrating, but it sure ain't Tony.

    The correction they sent is STILL WRONG.

    That photo is not from last night's Pepsi 400. It was from the Busch race the night before.

    I think we, in sweet home Alabama, were responsible for making the first calls on this art ... we called our state bureau first, which resulted in the first (incorrect) correction. Finally, we did as I had initially suggested and called the NY photo desk directly.

    Actually, I made the first call to NY, telling them it was Earnhardt. But I didn't know at the time it was from the Busch race, so we made a second call. :-X

    I was overstating for comic effect. In fact, when we finally called NY, it sounded like they were fixing it.
