Before Scott Wietecha, a physical education teacher from Hendersonville, won his third straight marathon Saturday morning, the men’s half-marathon title also was won by a PE teacher. , native Roosevelt Cook finished with a time of 1:08:39 to become the first of the two physical education teachers to claim a title Saturday and said he and Wietecha got a chance to speak before the race. Rain, rain, go away: Throughout Friday night and early Saturday morning, rain and inclement weather were a concern for marathon workers and runners alike. “I’m just glad it didn’t rain,” said Megan Coyne, a women’s half-marathon runner.

Then came Texas in April 2014, where Elliott won an Xfinity race at a track he had never raced on. If that didn't convince people he had talent, the next race he did the exact same thing -- win at a track in his inaugural visit -- at Darlington, a... Elliott won only once more in 2014 but he led the standings for the final 16 weeks on his way to earning the title and sealing his spot next to -- in front of. -- Kyle Larson as the young drivers fans will turn on their televisions to watch. "Winning in any of these series is hard to do and to do it multiple times in your first year is pretty remarkable," defending Cup champion Kevin Harvick said. "As you look at the expectations, managing those expectations is going to be the part that is toughest for him. He's been around racing. He understands racing.
