Matt Kenseth took a lot of heat when he won a Cup title in 2003 despite never winning a race. For Kenseth, it was all about consistency, as he snagged a season-high 25 top-10 finishes. So it makes one wonder if Carl Edwards will endure the same type of grief if he ends up winning a title in similar fashion. Edwards has won only one race this year — in the regular season — but leads Tony Stewart by eight points despite the fact that Stewart has three victories in Chase races.

Everything is laid out for this 1993 rookie class like a plate of filet mignon.A year ago Winston Cup racing couldn't even put together a rookie class. By the time the season reached the 20-race mark, only Jimmy Hensley had run the required eight races. Guess who won Rookie of the Year?Now there are the Super Rookies.Bobby Labonte. Jeff Gordon. Kenny Wallace.Tom Cruise, eat your heart out. They are three top guns. All young, all attractive, with the kind of smooth self-assurance major corporate sponsors adore enough to spend millions on. They are rookies, but they have sponsorship deals over which long-time veterans, active and retired, would salivate.

NASCAR made its second annual appearance in Mexico this weekend, and it was successful again. And that is terrific. But I keep wondering, as I have for decades: What about Canada? Fox's live telecast of yesterday's Busch Series race from Mexico City offered Hispanic audiences the option of play-by-play in Spanish via the "SAP," or Second Audio Programming, system. Jim Hunter, the NASCAR vice president for corporate communications, makes no bones about it: "We need the Hispanic market."

DOVER, Del. - Ryan Newman's pole-winning qualifying effort for tomorrow's MBNA Armed Forces Family 400 Winston Cup race was overshadowed yesterday by the news that Dodge had canceled its contract with Bill Davis Racing. Davis, who owns the cars driven by Ward Burton and Kenny Wallace, switched from Ford to Dodge three years ago. He was told before the Coca-Cola 600 last week that his contract was being voided. Todd Goyer, manager of Dodge Motorsports, said Bill Davis Racing had done something "intolerable."

Jeff Gordon, less than a season away from his Rookie of the Year performance on the Busch Grand National circuit, is a household name in stock car racing.He has signed a deal for a full Winston Cup ride next season that has caused gnashing of teeth within Ford Motor Co., upset his Busch car owner and team and brought him more attention than he ever wanted."I was a bit startled by everyone's reaction," Gordon said yesterday, as he passed through Baltimore on his way to Dover, Del., and tomorrow's 200-mile Busch race at Dover Downs International Speedway.

Brothers Kenny and Mike Wallace are making the most of their opportunities to show they can be just as competitive as their admired older brother. Rusty Wallace, of course, has the 1989 Winston Cup title to hang his hat on. Kenny, now driving for Dale Earnhardt Inc. while driver Steve Park recovers from a severe concussion, has four top-20 finishes (including sixth at treacherous Talladega, Ala.), since joining the team in September. He took the pole for today's Pop Secret 400 at North Carolina Speedway in Rockingham, N.C. Mike, meanwhile, has replaced Jeremy Mayfield, also on an interim basis, on the same Penske team for which Rusty, 45, first competed in Winston Cup in 1980.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. It generally has been considered a given that Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte and Kenny Wallace will be among the star drivers when NASCAR Winston Cup racing rolls into the 21st century.Many of the sport's knowledgeable insiders are saying Robert Pressley should be added to the list.Pressley, a lanky mountaineer from Asheville, N.C., strengthened his resume last weekend when he won the Mark III Vans 200, outdueling Harry Gant at Darlington (S.C) Raceway. It was the second straight spring Pressley has beaten the savvy Winston Cup veteran at the track rated as NASCAR's toughest.
