INDIANAPOLIS - Kenny Brack returned the favor for Buddy Rice when the 1999 Indianapolis 500 winner was named yesterday to replace last year's winner in the No. 15 Rahal Letterman Panoz-Honda for next week's race. A year ago it was Rice winning the 500 as a sub for Brack, who had suffered multiple injuries in an accident at Texas Motor Speedway at the end of the 2003 season. Brack has not raced in an Indy car since, but after five laps was up to 220 mph and had a 225.774 before he called it a day. "It was fun, it really was," Brack said after logging 129 laps around the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway circuit.

INDIANAPOLIS -- One of the most tantalizing races in modern Indianapolis 500 history turned on a splash of fuel yesterday. Robby Gordon needed it. Kenny Brack didn't.With one lap left and Gordon apparently headed for the checkered flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the off-road racing veteran abruptly turned down pit row for enough methanol to go the final 2 1/2 miles.Brack, a Swedish driver recruited by A. J. Foyt last year, shot to the front and a lap later gave Foyt his fifth Indy 500 triumph -- four as a driver and now his first as a car owner.

Two more years, and he would also have been a centenarian.Sighting that name as an Evening Sun editorial page byline, many Baltimoreans took it for a nom de birdplume. But no: Swiss forebears spelt it Brechbuehl.Brack was a printer's son. Leaving Lancaster, Pa., after high school, Brack worked for Western Union -- telegrams were yesterday's e-mail, sort of -- and then, in Baltimore, for the Associated Press.

If she had her way, Hedda Gabler might have been a control freak. That's the distinct sense you get from director Michael Kahn's production of Henrik Ibsen's drama at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre. Kahn begins his production with an added wordless scene in which we see actress Judith Light as an uncharacteristically disheveled Hed- da. Seated in the middle of the stage, still in her nightgown and robe, she looks stunned, distraught. Suddenly she puts her hand to her mouth, rises and breaks into dry heaves as she battles against an onslaught of morning sickness.
