Who committed a NASCAR murder?

   This week, A&E’s police drama, “The Glades,” filmed an episode for their second season, set inside the world of NASCAR. 

   The episode takes place at Homestead-Miami Speedway, as the show’s lead detective (actor Matt Passmore) does his investigation of a murder during a Ford 400 race weekend. 

   Sprint Cup Series drivers Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Brian Vickers all play themselves in the episode, which also features the Nos. 18 and 16 cars and a fictitious No. 74 Cup teams.

   In the episode, which should air in late June, detective Jim Longworth investigates a NASCAR-related murder, goes head-to-head with NASCAR's top drivers, and takes a few laps around Homestead-Miami Speedway.
