NASCAR driver Justin Boston watched his first stock car race in Dover, Del., and he'll be returning there Saturday - this time, behind the wheel. Boston, of Sparks, made his Nationwide Series debut in the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 last Saturday in Sparta, Ky., finishing ninth out of 40 drivers, but his second race in the top-tier minor league series will be at a location closer to his heart. "It will be really cool to run there for the first time after watching there [while] growing up," Boston said this week.

Aging drivers who have lost their nerve or young drivers who just can't handle the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit usually find themselves dropped by sponsors. Not drivers such as Alan Kulwicki, who had a career-best season in 1990.But sure enough Kulwicki, 36, found himself without financial backing last December, even though he had finished eighth in the 1990 Winston Cup points. That was six places higher than his previous top performances of 14th in 1988 and 1989."Zerex antifreeze had been my sponsor, but they decided to get out of the race car business," said Kulwicki.

After a string of five losing seasons, Mount Saint Joseph's football players resolved during the offseason to create a new identity for their Gaels program this fall - one that would bring winning back.

Most Winston Cup drivers hate Dover Downs International Speedway. They hate its high banks that turn their neck muscles to jelly. They hate its four turns that seem to run into one another, forcing constant attention and demanding they show the arm strength of Rocky Balboa.They hate that each turn on its one-mile course demands something different from the race car's chassis setup.And they hate that a 500-mile race at the Delaware track is an endurance test of a solid 4 1/2 to five hours.

The 77 t h annual Dover Days Festival, running today through Sunday, is so crammed with activities — parades, arts and crafts demonstrations, music performances and historic tours — that 15,000 people crowd the grounds each year. (Though the Festival dates back to 1930, it took a break for a few years during World War II.)
