  • Extreme 4 has $1,000 purse Aug. 24

    The Extreme 4 Division at Lancaster Motor Speedway will be racing for $1,000 to win Aug. 24.
    This race marks the second time the Extreme 4 Division will be racing for $1,000 to win, because the second annual Phillip Knight Memorial race, held Aug. 10, was also a $1,000 to win.
    Chris Baker posted his second straight Phillip Knight Memorial race win and the $1,000 payday last Saturday night at LMS.
    Baker said he’s hoping the win will provide key momentum as he seeks his second straight win for another big payday at the half-mile dirt track.

  • Gamecocks hope to profit from challenging schedule

    The 2019 edition of the University of South Carolina football team might be Coach Will Muschamp’s best team in his four seasons, but it might not be reflected in USC’s final record.

  • Sports Talk: Loss of Kellin leaves a void

    There’s a void as the 2019 Lancaster County high school football season nears.
    With each season and each team, there’s always holes to fill, but the gap I’m thinking about is the loss of a fixture on the Andrew Jackson High School football sidelines.
    That’s David Kellin, who died last month at his Kershaw home.
    When I say a void, I truly mean it.
    A few seasons back, we lost our AJ Vols sports correspondent just before the season began.
    We were in a bind as the season was quickly drawing close.
