Need to regain your short-track edge and reach a Winston Cup milestone? For Rusty Wallace, there's no better place than Bristol, Tenn. "I really put a big bull's-eye on this place, it's one of my favorites," said Wallace, who defended his Food City 500 title yesterday and became only the 10th driver in NASCAR with at least 50 victories. "I worked hard to get this one and pointed here." And Wallace won't make the same mistake he did a year ago. He left here thinking he would win "five or six more times."

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.

RICHMOND, Va. - Jeremy Mayfield had farther to go than most in the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 Nextel Cup race - and he did. Last night was the night for drivers who had a chance to make the field for The Chase to the NASCAR Nextel Cup, the final 10-race dash that will determine this year's champion. And Mayfield, who hadn't won since the Pocono 500 in June 2000 - 143 races ago - was 14th in the standings, 479 points behind the leader and 55 points out of the top 10, the probable final qualifying position for The Chase.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Seconds before the most rollicking victory celebration of the NASCAR season broke out yesterday, Jeremy Mayfield's crew chief, Richard "Slugger" Labbe, put their win most succinctly. "We had a 20th-place car today, and we robbed the bank," Labbe said, then sprinted to where Mayfield had stalled his Dodge in the infield grass after blowing out both rear tires doing burnouts. Labbe's rambunctious tackle knocked Mayfield to the ground moments after he emerged from the car, "and I had to do the TV interview with the breath knocked out of me," Mayfield said later.

DOVER, Del. - Nextel Cup driver Jeremy Mayfield won the pole for tomorrow's MBNA America 400 and emerged from his No. 19 Dodge with a bright orange T-shirt just visible under his driver's suit. "I want you," was all that could be seen. What's that you're wearing, he was asked. "It's just a funny little joke," Mayfield said as he unzipped the top of his suit and pulled it open to reveal the rest of the message: "I want you ... to stay far, far away from me," "You probably know who the `you' is," said Mayfield, who was caught up in a wreck last weekend that was intentionally caused by Robby Gordon, who drives the orange No. 31 Chevrolet owned by Richard Childress.
