It’s an interesting sports weekend

First off, we’ve got a NASCAR race at the Kansas Speedway. Looks like “Front Row” Joe Nemechek will be the pole sitter.

KU will be facing K-State in the Sunflower Showdown Saturday evening. K-State is favored by only four points.

Oklahoma and Texas will face in the Red River Shootout off at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas

in High School Ball… Silver Lake and Rossville will be meeting in the “War on 24.” Interestingly enough, the Silver Lake-Rossville rivalry predates the US highway systen, and Highway 24 didn’t go through those towns for another decade after that.

Free State HS finally won a game against newcomer Olathe Northwest, who is in their second year overall and their first year of Varsity Football.

Lawrence High plays Olathe South tonight at home.

LHS and Free State play each other in two weeks.

White City plays at St. Xavier. No threat of a forefit — Districts are on in 8-man.
