NASCAR drivers reflect on the Sept. 11 attacks


Today marks the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and like many, the NASCAR community will remember all those who were lost.

Prior to racing Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway, drivers took the time to remember where they were on this day 15 years ago.

“Just like everyone, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said Carl Edwards.

Kyle Busch recalls how he had just arrived at school, while older brother Kurt was with his race team. Jimmie Johnson, who has made a second home in New York over the last few years, was heading to the gym.
