INDIANAPOLIS -- The world driving champion walked ever so slowly to the podium. When he got there, he seemed to collapse into the chair. He just had driven the longest race of his career.He leaned his elbows on the table, ran an index finger around the inside of the dirty collar of his driver's suit, and then rubbed his eyes.So, Nigel Mansell, how was your first Indianapolis 500?"I'm glad it's over," he said and giggled.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Wet weather kept the action to a minimum yesterday at the New Jersey Meadowlands, giving Rick Mears the pole position for today's Marlboro Grand Prix.Mears set a track qualifying record and beat Penske Racing teammate Emerson Fittipaldi and hot-handed Michael Andretti for the provisional pole on Friday in dry, warm weather.Those speeds easily held up yesterday, as overnight rain continued into the daylight hours, soaking the 1.217-mile, six-turn course circling the Meadowlands Arena.

SURFERS PARADISE, Australia -- For a man who had won both races in which he earned the pole position, Al Unser Jr. was indifferent about the honor.Unser, driving a new Valvoline Galmer-Chevy, set a track record yesterday at the Gold Coast Indy Grand Prix -- the first series race of 1992. He sped around the revamped street course at 101.900 mph, passing a trouble-plagued Michael Andretti for the pole position in today's race.Andretti, last year's IndyCar series champion, had electrical problems yesterday and failed to record a lap time.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The exhilaration did not wear off overnight. Emerson Fittipaldi finally went to bed at 1 a.m. yesterday, but he was up again at 6 a.m."It was more difficult to sleep the night after the race than the night before," he said after the traditional photo shoot with the Indianapolis 500 champion.The Fittipaldi name in auto racing history didn't really need a boost. Two world Formula One championships, the IndyCar title in 1989 and his first Indy 500 victory that same year had elevated Fittipaldi into the pantheon of driving legends.
