It won't get nearly the attention of Brett Favre's tearful farewell, but NASCAR will be bidding adieu this weekend to one of its longtime stars. Dale Jarrett, 51, will take his last spin this weekend at the big race in Bristol, Tenn., in his No. 44 Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing. Jarrett comes out of the North Carolina racing tradition and ran for 24 years and won 32 races, including seven in 1997 and three at the Daytona 500. His father, Ned, was a two-time Grand National champion, and his son, Jason, drove in the Busch Series.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Ned Jarrett's face was red, and if a person can glow, Ned Jarrett glowed. His son, Dale, just had won the Daytona 500. The Daytona 500, for Pete's sake. The biggest race on the Winston Cup schedule.Dale Jarrett had won it with his father calling the finish on CBS-TV. Ned Jarrett was telling his audience that race leader Dale Earnhardt was loose and that Dale should close in to make him looser -- and Dale Jarrett, as if hearing the instructions, closed in.Ned Jarrett was telling his listeners that Dale should go low, and, moments later, Dale Jarrett did go low. It was a move that put him in victory lane for the 35th Daytona 500."

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Dale Jarrett blasted back from the past yesterday. And Jimmie Johnson just kept on blazing. Jarrett won the pole for Sunday's Daytona 500 with a qualifying lap at 188.312 mph in a Ford, and Johnson locked up the other front-row starting spot with the second-best speed, 188.170 in a Chevrolet. Only the front-row starters locked in starting spots for the race but, under NASCAR's new qualifying rules, the top 35 teams in car owner points are guaranteed starting positions.

Suffice it to say that, for a substantial chunk of the country, particularly big-city northerners, the lure of the Daytona 500 makes about as much sense as the draw of the Stanley Cup for many southerners.But as this year's edition of the biggest event in stock car racing approaches, the attraction of the 500 and NASCAR is crystal clear to Ken Squier and Ned Jarrett, who will call Sunday's race for CBS (Channel 13, noon)."This sport, more than any other, has not lost the common touch -- its ability to understand that it's not driven by television, not driven by anything other than people who care a lot about it," said Squier.

LONG POND, Pa. -- More than half a dozen children from the Make A Wish Foundation assembled beside Jeff Gordon's team truck yesterday morning, waiting for the three-time Winston Cup Champion to make their dreams come true.Gordon, 27, emerged and signed their autographs, patted their backs, gave a few hugs. The smile never left his face as he brought smiles to theirs.A little while later, back in the truck, Gordon, who will start 17th at Pocono Raceway this afternoon in the Pocono 500, was asked to put this season in perspective, and he didn't answer immediately.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - It is the unlikeliest marriage of man and machine. Two rivals who wouldn't dare speak to each other as their stock cars rumbled throughout the country for 36 weeks of the year. After years of in-house friction in the Ford family, Jack Roush and Robert Yates finally decided to make nice by merging their engine-building operations in the offseason. The new empire showed plenty of muscle yesterday, filling up the top two qualifying slots for the Daytona 500 Sunday. Greg Biffle, whose banged-up car couldn't even run here for the 2002 Daytona 500, snatched the pole with a time of 188.387 mph, followed by Elliott Sadler (188.

DOVER, Del. - Racing to the start/finish line when a caution flag flies in NASCAR Winston Cup racing is a tradition as old as the sport. Until now, not even a driver's death could put a stop to it. But today, in the MBNA America 400 at Dover International Speedway, that tradition will become history. When a yellow caution flag appears on this one-mile speedway, drivers will be compelled to reduce their speed and line up single file behind the leader. No driver is allowed to improve his position during the caution, and anyone who tries to will be penalized.

Concussions come with such frequency in sports, few people give them much thought after the initial cringe. Oh, race fans know that if their favorite driver hits his head hard enough and often enough his career could be delayed or ended. Examples abound - Bobby Allison, Ernie Irvan, Steve Park, and the late Neil Bonnett among them. But during a conference call last week, Dale Jarrett drove home just how scary and long-lasting concussions can be. A year ago at Kansas Speedway, where the Winston Cup series is again today, Jarrett hit a wall and suffered a head blow.

DOVER, Del. - The garages at Dover Downs International Speedway were ablaze with patriotism yesterday, as the Winston Cup Series went back to work. There were flags painted on car hoods, on the deck (trunk) lids, on lower-rear quarter panels, on door posts, and stars across rear bumpers. And there was understanding in nearly every driver's heart, as they returned to work after NASCAR's decision to take last weekend off out of respect for the victims in the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Winston Cup stock car drivers haven't run in this much darkness since the revenuers used to chase their ancestors' hotrods over back mountain roads in those storied moonshine-running days. But last night, by the time qualifying for tomorrow's Diehard 500 was nearing an end, darkness had settled. Jeff Burton took his car on the track for the final qualifying run of the day at 8: 40 p.m. Somehow, it seemed a relief when his oil pump seized and he couldn't finish his two-lap trial on this 2.66-mile tri-oval, with its leering high banks and menacing curves.

While drivers are scrambling all around him, Dale Jarrett, 42, remains the self-possessed leader of the Winston Cup points race.The rest of the field is trying to claw its way into contention and at the same time retain equilibrium in this crazy time known as "The Silly Season," when drivers jump from team to team for next year's run at the championship.There has been a driver change on the Yates team, too. But it involves only his teammate's car, not Jarrett. Beginning next season, veteran Ricky Rudd will be driving the second Robert Yates-owned car now driven by Kenny Irwin.
