DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Rusty Wallace's No. 2 Dodge has been disqualified from Thursday's twin 125-mile qualifying races, in which he finished fourth. But Wallace will still start 38th in tomorrow's Daytona 500 with a provisional based on car-owner points from last season. In a post-race inspection, his Dodge was discovered to have an illegal interior carburetor part. NASCAR officials said they waited until after yesterday's Winston Cup practice to make the announcement, so they could complete inspections of all 10 cars that were reviewed after the race.

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Ricky Rudd used fuel economy yesterday to win a Miller Genuine Draft 400 that was dominated from the start to almost the finish at Michigan International Speedway by Mark Martin.Martin's Ford led 141 of the 200 laps in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series race on the 2-mile track. Rudd, driving a Chevrolet, led only 19 laps, but his total included the final nine after Martin pitted on Lap 192 for enough fuel to finish. Martin wound up sixth."It was pretty apparent we weren't going to outrun Mark," Rudd said after his first victory in 18 races.

MOSCOW -- Oleg Kulikov moonlighted for months, saving every ruble he could to buy a brand-new car. Finally, he amassed the small fortune of $7,000 and triumphantly brought home a shiny red Niva. Within two weeks, the carburetor went out."I'm happy as an elephant," Kulikov, a 40-year-old Army colonel, proclaimed a few days later. So far only a bad carburetor!For years, almost all Russian drivers were like Kulikov, supplicants so abjectly grateful when manufacturers deigned to sell them a car that they never dared hope it would actually run well.

Tuesday morning the wind was up -- blowing strong enough to make one think seriously about fishing from a big, comfortable charter boat or maybe even the Q.E. II -- and the boat had been taken into the river mouth.In the lee of the southern shoreline, a handful of fishermen on a few other small boats were picking over two small, breaking schools of 14-inch rockfish. Cast, catch, release. Ad infinitum, if one so desired.After a few minutes of catch-and-release, the boat was left to idle and drift while a screwdriver was taken to the carburetor and the rpms taken down to 500, the fuel mixture leaned out until the V-8 inboard fairly gasped.
