Matt Kenseth, the first NASCAR Sprint Cup driver in 11 years to win the opening two races of the season, was in Towson yesterday for a sponsor appearance at DeWalt Industrial Tool Co. Instead of writing a mundane article about the Daytona 500 winner from Wisconsin, we posed him a series of questions he might never have been asked before --- and likely won't again.

The best story from testing at Daytona involves a beard and a bet. Matt Kenseth was among the invited guests for a New Year's Eve '70s party at Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s house. In the heat of the festive moment, Junior bet Kenseth he couldn't keep a beard he had grown — a Fu Manchu thing, in honor of the party — when everybody reconvened at Daytona for testing. Game on, Kenseth said. The boys bet $2,500. Only Kenseth came to Daytona with a lame three-day stubble and tried to pass that off as a "beard.

Matt Kenseth is like nearly every other Winston Cup driver. He just wants to drive his race car. If all he had to do every day were to get up, get dressed and race, life would be perfect. But that's not the way it is. If a driver wants to race, he has to have a sponsor. The bigger the sponsor, the better the car. And to achieve harmony with that sponsor, a driver has to spend days like the one Kenseth spent in Baltimore recently, looking over the company's products, glad-handing employees and signing autographs.

Every week, it's another manifestation of the boys having at it. Monday it came from Jeff Gordon , who was so furious at Matt Kenseth for bumping him late in the race, he made it his mission to make sure Kenseth didn't win. "If somebody hits me, I'm going to hit them," Gordon said. "I'm glad I did what I did on the back straightaway. If a guy gives you a cheap shot like that, he doesn't deserve to win the race." Yes, that was Jeff Gordon showing that emotion. Kenseth's response wasn't timid either.

NEW YORK - The city is dressed for celebration this time of year and, at the fashionable 21 Club, guests passed a large Christmas tree as they entered the restaurant. A fire blazed in the fireplace, and the staff was eager to help Winston Cup champion Matt Kenseth store his coat and find his way to the dining room, where he was to meet the media for lunch. But a funny thing happened as introductions were being made at the luncheon. The master of ceremonies introduced car owner Jack Roush and crew chief Robbie Reiser, who both got up and said a few words.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Seldom have two drivers been happier after losing a race than Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman were after yesterday's UAW-Ford 500. That Dale Jarrett had come out of nowhere to beat them on the final lap was an afterthought, and a not-unpleasant one at that: good for him, they both indicated. They were thrilled to be outta here, done with restrictor-plate racing for the season, and 1-2 in the significantly scrambled Chase for the Championship standings. "I'm over the race," Stewart said minutes after finishing second in a typically maddening, white-knuckled crash-fest at Talladega Superspeedway, complete with 10 caution flags.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Given his stature and standing in NASCAR, it seems odd that Jeff Gordon could be second in the Nextel Cup standings, just six points out of the lead, but a bit ignored by fans and media. The attention this fall has been on Kasey Kahne, the pole-sitter for today's Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway, as he struggled to get a berth in the championship-deciding Chase for the Nextel Cup despite leading the series in race victories with five. And there's been lots of focus on the resurgent Richard Childress Racing team, with drivers Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burton, the current points leader, both in the top five in points after missing the first two Chases.

JOLIET, Ill. - When Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally had a break or two go his way yesterday, after half a season of miserable luck, he seized the moment and wouldn't let go. He blasted out of a 19-race Nextel Cup winless streak, and out from under the microscope of NASCAR fans, with a victory in the USG Sheetrock 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, where he'd never finished higher than 10th. At times speechless in Victory Lane, and seeming as astounded as he was euphoric, Earnhardt gasped. "This is a long time coming, man," he said.

Some Danica Patrick haters felt redeemed after her 31st-place finish Saturday in Fontana, Calif. That's a little ridiculous. The experiment hasn't failed. It's just getting started. Daytona was the easiest race Patrick will have this season and thus the perfect place for her to start. She better get used to ignoring her finishes and focus only on improvement. If she doesn't improve, go ahead and crow that she failed. The process will take at least a year. Reunion: Carl Edwards' Nationwide team got some good news this week.
