DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Sarah Mayer did not listen to her father's advice, making him very happy. David A. Hutchins, 65, of Sharpsburg had always lectured his daughter about what a bad idea it was to lend motorcycles to friends. So, there he was, making his way to Daytona Beach on her 1991 Honda Nighthawk for his first Bike Week. The retired Prince George's County math teacher, who hadn't ridden since the Carter administration, found too much sun, too much traffic, too much noise at the 63rd-annual event, but "very, very friendly people, everywhere."

YOU CAN CATCH HIM on the field or riding his bicycle along the sandy shores of Daytona Beach, Fla. When Orioles' manager Dave Trembley's schedule is not filled with baseball, he is definitely thinking or talking about it. "It's my life," said Trembley. The 56-year-old manager spent two decades coaching in the minor leagues before being elevated last year to the majors as the Orioles' on-field coordinator. Within weeks he became the bullpen coach and last June he was named manager. Trembley says the secret to managing a successful team is communication.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The racetrack is hard to miss. It's smack in the middle of this ocean-side city, an imposing structure looming over the aptly named International Speedway Boulevard - a multi-lane road dotted with the billboards, businesses and attractions that announce a singular reliance on speed. It's a large monument to one of this beachfront community's two big draws: One of them, the hard white Florida sand, is part of the city's name. The second, the Daytona International Speedway - site of stock car racing's own Super Bowl, the Daytona 500 - is part of its history.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - This is a city of broad, white beaches on the Atlantic Ocean, home of America's most famous stock car race and a popular destination for college kids on spring break. But Daytona Beach also stands as a significant site in African-American history, linked to three important figures in the civil rights movement - Jackie Robinson, Mary McLeod Bethune and Howard Thurman. Daytona Beach, settled by Mathias Day in the mid-1800s, was as segregated a town as any other Southern city, with plantations growing rice, indigo and sugar cane.

MTV and college spring break used to go together like bikinis and beer on Daytona Beach in Florida, but next year the station will go elsewhere for its live broadcasts.After eight years, MTV decided last week to pull out of Daytona Beach and cover spring break elsewhere, MTV spokeswoman Tina Exarhos said."We have not decided on a location," she said. "We're looking at a handful of sites on the East and West coasts. We expect to make a decision by the end of the year."The decision comes after months of conflict over coverage of this year's spring break.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Picture it. A TV commercial. Voice-over: "Congratulations Marin Alsop! Now that you've just been named new music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, what do you do next?" Alsop grins broadly and declares: "I'm going to Daytona Beach!" Not a very likely advertisement, perhaps, but the scenario isn't at all far-fetched. A day after signing a contract with the BSO to take charge of the podium in 2007, and with the music world still buzzing about a startling request from the orchestra's musicians to continue searching for a music director, Alsop hit the beach.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Tony Stewart, who seems to run better when he's surrounded by a little controversy, won the pole yesterday for tonight's Pepsi 400, two days after an altercation with a fan at Daytona International Speedway. He downplayed the incident after qualifying. "It's a pretty petty deal," Stewart said. "It's not something that we're even worried about. We've discarded it already." Elliott Sadler was sixth fastest in a Ford, followed by the Chevys of Kevin Harvick and Jason Leffler and Rusty Wa l l a c e 's Dodge . Ke rry Earnhardt's fast lap gave Chevy eight of the top 10 spots in the field of 43. Daytona 500 champion Jeff Gordon qualified 15th.
