Alex Zanardi loves to play with the steering wheel and pedals on a race car. It is a love that has the second-year driver positioned to set a record this weekend and perhaps capture a championship by the time the new Championship Auto Racing League season is over.Today, Zanardi, who has won four straight poles, will try to claim a record ninth straight front-row starting spot during qualifying for CART's season-opening event, the Marlboro Grand Prix of Miami, in Homestead, Fla."To get the record is very, very important, but you have to leave the dreams in your pocket when you're driving," said the 30-year-old native of Bologna, Italy.

Robby Gordon was on his way to winning the 1999 Indianapolis 500. His pit crew kept telling him to keep driving, but as Gordon was less than two laps from getting the checkered flag, he encountered a problem to which many can relate whether they're in a $1 million race car or a rusted clunker. Gordon's car ran out of gas. "I want to sit and cry," Gordon said that day. While one of the universal goals of racing is what race team strategists like Target Chip Ganassi's Mike Hull, whose driver, Scott Dixon, won the pole for today's race, call "full to finish" - having just enough gas left in the tank to get to the end - decisions about when to pit and when to pass often makes the difference between winning and losing.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Eddie Cheever bounds into the motor home parked next to the garage area. His face is tanned. He runs his fingers through his brownish-blond hair, revealing a streak of gray.He smiles, boyishly."I have a passion for competing," he says, settling into a comfortable position on one of the couches lining the walls. "I love competing. I don't really like testing very much, or qualifying very much. But I love racing. Racing is so exciting, because every thing happens immediately.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Jeff Gordon seems to have an innate ability to come through when the chips are down. Winston Cup observers are speculating on Gordon's slow start this season and pondering his emotional state as he deals with the fact that his wife of seven years has sued him for divorce. Gordon, however, showing no signs of distraction took his Chevrolet onto Bristol Motor Speedway's tricky half-mile oval on a cold afternoon yesterday and won the pole for tomorrow's Food City 500 with a track-record run of 127.216 mph. "This is gratifying," said Gordon.

Just before entering his final lap, Will Power looked at the readout on the dashboard of his Penske Dallara and knew he was a tenth of a second off the fastest time of the day. He then set off on an exciting sprint to claim the pole for Baltimore's inaugural Grand Prix.
