Hornets for Your Health

Want to run faster? Then why not try eating hornets. Even better, giant killer hornets. That's right - grab one, kill it and suck out its stomach guts.

Sound crazy? Well, the stomach juice of Giant Hornets can actually improve your body's efficiency and stop your muscles from getting tired. Naoko Takahashi definitely got an extra buzz from the juice. She drank this strange drink before and during the Olympic marathon in Sydney - and she went on to win the race!

Japanese scientists discovered that the stomach juice of Giant Hornets helps them fly more than 50 miles in search of food. And it has a similar effect on humans. The scientists persuaded Naoko to try the drink - after chugging the brew, she became the first Japanese woman to win a gold medal in running!

Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
