INDIANAPOLIS -- In the end, it was Jacques Villeneuve's ability to keep his emotions under control and his foot on the brake -- or as he said, "keep my foot attached to my brain" -- that won him the 79th Indianapolis 500."The team was ready to win," Villeneuve said. "I knew the car would be strong, and today is the happiest day in my racing life. Even though I [messed] up -- leaving before the fueling was finished, stalling twice in the pits, taking a two-lap penalty -- even though we did everything we could not to win this race, we came back and won it."

Rule No. 1 of customer service is to make sincere amends as quickly as possible to avoid alienating the paying public. Then there's rule No. 2, established exclusively by Bruton Smith . Act like an arrogant, insensitive boor. Instead of doing the right thing and getting in front of the traffic debacle at Kentucky Speedway, Smith, president of the track and CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc., announced his track won't be offering refunds to tens of thousands of fans turned away, blamed traffic snarls on the city, country and state governments, and then, for good measure, took a highly insensitive — if not racist — swipe at South Florida, home to Homestead Miami Speedway.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Mixed signals almost cost Arie Luyendyk his second career Indianapolis 500 victory yesterday.Faced with a high-speed game of what do you trust -- the green flag or the yellow lights at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway -- Luyendyk reacted like a true racer. He followed his instincts, stood on the throttle and outhustled equally confused teammate Scott Goodyear to the checkered flag after the 200th and final lap of the 81st Indianapolis 500.A race already made noteworthy by two days of rain, and for the debut of the Indy Racing League's new specification cars here, added a chapter to Goodyear's star-crossed Indy story.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A day ago, driver Jimmie Johnson stepped from his No. 48 Chevrolet with a mystified look. He's 28 and in his third full season, and though that doesn't make him an old-timer, it does make him knowledgeable. It also makes him pretty sure he knows what's going on most of the time when it comes to Nextel Cup racing. But after Thursday's 125-mile qualifying race for tomorrow's Daytona 500, Johnson was one of many drivers and crew chiefs at Daytona International Speedway having a difficult time connecting the dots.

Let me begin by saying that it was not while we floated gently through the skies over Bowie in the Goodyear blimp that the headline "NEWSPAPERMAN KILLED IN FREAK BLIMP MISHAP!" flashed into my head. No, that happened once we were safely back on the ground and posing for pictures, after a gust of wind blew the blimp toward us and the ground crew chief yelled "Run!" and I thought: In the entire history of aviation, has anyone ever been run over by a blimp? But that's getting ahead of the story, which began on a gorgeous weekday afternoon when we took off from Freeway Airport in Bowie.

Xerox Corp., whose sales have dropped eight quarters in a row, had a first-quarter loss because of costs to depart the inkjet printer business, job cuts and a decline in demand for color copiers. The loss was $64 million, or 9 cents a share, compared with net income of $202 million, or 25 cents, a year earlier. Xerox said the figures are preliminary because it's restating results for the past five years as part of a settlement of allegations that it inflated revenue to bolster earnings.

The big season is over for another year. Deer hunters who only tote modern firearms will have to wait until Nov. 30, 2002 to hit the woods again. For 10-year-old Casey Kennedy it will be a fall to remember for a long time. The Talbot County boy was hunting with his big brother, Kelly, 19, after school on Nov. 27, when Casey shot a 12-point, 166-pound buck. "We were in the stand and we heard something," says Casey, who stands 4 feet 2 and weighs 65 pounds. "We saw two big bucks and then a third one. They were in the brush and turning away when my brother grunted and turned them around.

AKRON, Ohio - Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said yesterday that it's eliminating about 10,700 jobs over two years because raw material costs are rising and carmakers are producing fewer vehicles. The 10 percent work force reduction is expected to reduce costs by about $150 million this year and help cut costs by $500 million annually by 2005. Goodyear took a fourth-quarter charge of $93.7 million, or 59 cents a share, for the job cuts and plant consolidations, resulting in a loss of $102 million, or 65 cents.

Just a week after Tony George, the founder of the Indy Racing Northern Light Series, said the schedule would be expanded to 12 races next season, driver Scott Goodyear was at Richmond International Raceway setting an unofficial track record. Goodyear turned a lap of 146.75 mph. Richmond is to be one of six new markets on the 2001 schedule. Its June 30, 2001 date, however, was subject to satisfactory results during Tuesday's test, because the track is just .75-mile long. The IRL has not previously raced on a track shorter than one-mile.
