Some short takes from the midweek motorsports notebook:

Benny Parsons was inducted into the N.C. Auto Racing Hall of Fame Wednesday evening at a ceremony in Mooresville, N.C., and that city, known as "Race City, USA," has announced it will add a Walk of Fame beginning in May to honor the late Parsons and the other members of the N.C. hall.

Rockingham Dragway has the season-ending International Hot Rod Association World Finals Oct. 17 and 18, but it was also a busy place Tuesday when National Hot Rod Association Pro Stock drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line and Funny Car driver Robert Hight were there testing.

Jeff Dobbins, a contender for the IHRA Pro Stock title, also tested at Rockingham on Tuesday.
