ENTERTAINMENT: ‘I Spy’ star Robert Culp, dies at 79

compiled by staff

Robert Culp, who played former tennis star-turned-secret agent Kelly Robinson while teamming with Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott in the TV series “I Spy” and was Bob in the sex comedy “Bob, Carol, Ted & Alice, died earlier this week after collapsing outside his Hollywood home, he was 79.

Culp’s manager Hilliard Elkins said the actor was on a walk when he fell. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead just before noon Pacific Time.

“I Spy”  greatly advanced the careers of Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. They became famous and household names in Hollywood and became lifelong friends. Bill Cosby has said over the years during interviews that Culp was like an older brother to him. “As an actor, he always was there to teach me and protect me,” Cosby said.

‘I Spy” aired from 1965 to 1968 and was a television groundbreaking show with its combination of humor and adventure which broke new barriers.  It was the first integrated show to feature a black actor in a starring role.

As mentioned before, Robert Culp played Kelly Robinson, a spy whose cover was as a touring tennis player. Unknown to most people, in real life Culp actually was a top-notch tennis player who showed his skills in numerous celebrity tournaments. Cosby was his co-hort and fellow spy Alexander Scott, whose character cover was as Culp’s trainer. The duo traveled the world in the secret service of the United States government.

Eventhough Culp was the more polished actor, it was Cosby who won Emmy’s for the leading role actor all three years that “I Spy” aired.

After years of discussion and planning, Culp and Cosby teammed up in 1994 for a two-hour CBS movie, “I Spy Returns.”

Robert Martin Culp was born in 1930 in Oakland, California and is survived by his wife, Candace Culp and five children.

compiled by staff

This weekend, the NASCAR Sprint Cup moves to the “Paper Clip” race track, known as Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville/Ridgeway, Virginia. The track is NASCAR-owned and operated. It’s located not far from Bristol,  and Roanoke/Danville, Virginia.

This week is the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 on Fox-TV at 1 p.m. It is a 500 laps or 263 mile race.

Martinsville Speedway has several characteristics with wrecks being very common at the series’ shortest and oldest-track, built in 1947. Passing can be very difficult on the paper-clip-shaped surface, which is a bumpy combination of concrete and asphalt. Long straightaways tied to flat, narrow corners make for hard braking in the turns. It is the lone short track in the 10-race title run. It’s also the only remaining track that hosted the Strictly Stock Series which was the forerunner of the ( Sprint Cup) in 1949.

In 2009, during the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500, Jimmie Johnson bumped, banged and held off Denny Hamlin during the final 16 laps to get his first win of the season. Hamlin led a race-high 296 laps. Tony Stewart finished third and Jeff Gordon, who led 147 of the 500 laps, was fourth.

NASCAR will officially move from the wing to the more traditional spoiler at the March 28 race at Martinsville Speedway.

NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton says the spoiler will be used for the first time this weekend.

NASCAR decided in January that it would return the spoiler to its race cars, a decision that was based on improving the racing and to pleasr the fans who were displeased with the look of the wing, which first appeared in 2007.

Pemberton also said that the spoiler will replicate the downforce and balance that are being produced by the current car.
