BONER CANDIDATE #1: COULDN’T FIND A BETTER PICTURE OF THE DEMOCRAT

What was anticipated to be one of the nation’s highest-profile House races — the Republican effort to unseat Utah’s only Democrat in Congress, Rep.

In the weeks since the coronavirus pandemic halted live NASCAR events, the sport has held virtual races between drivers on the iRacing simulator. The drivers are situated at home but talk amongst themselves on Twitch live streams over the course of the virual contests.
