Taking a Test Drive
I am an avid sports fan, but I can honestly say I've never watched a NASCAR race—until I read SI's NASCAR Preview. The idea of following a young, exciting driver like Denny Hamlin (Party Hard and Race Harder, Feb. 15) convinced me to watch the Auto Club 500.

Thank you for the inspiring article on Mark Johnson and the U.S. women's hockey team (The Right Man for the Job, Feb. 15). I especially enjoyed the comments on Mark's decision to pass over the NHL and keep his word to continue building a championship-caliber women's team at Wisconsin. This man is—much like his father, Badger Bob, was—a positive role model.
