The economic pinch continues to be a factor in NASCAR after reports surfaced this week that Red Bull plans to end the sponsorship of its two cars at the end of the season. The move would impact the No. 4 team of Kasey Kahne and the No. 83 team of Brian Vickers . It leaves Vickers with far greater uncertainty because Kahne, now in his eighth full-time Cup season, will join Hendrick Motorsports next season. Vickers is in the final year of his contract. The Red Bull team has struggled since joining the NASCAR circuit in 2007.

The four Johns Hopkins University graduate students were analyzing their latest project. On top of regular classes and research, the material science and engineering majors had devoted what little free time they had to an endeavor that stretched their expertise. The result: Timmy the Turtle. Teammates Greg Fritz, 25; Travis De Journett, 25; Janice Lin, 26; and Matt Simone, 23, gathered yesterday morning to show off Timmy, the turtle-shaped cart that will make its official debut Saturday at the Red Bull Soapbox Race in Providence, R.I. Fritz will attempt to steer Timmy down a steep quarter-mile track in a time trial against 59 other bizarrely decorated human-powered vehicles, which Red Bull, an energy drink, predicts could reach speeds up to 35 mph. "Our sights are set on winning," Fritz says.

It seems Clint Bowyer finally has decided whether he will stay with Richard Childress Racing or move over to Michael Waltrip's team. The envelope, please: Michael Waltrip Racing it is. All signs point in that direction. Waltrip has scheduled a news conference at Kansas Speedway on Friday to discuss "the future of Michael Waltrip Racing," going on to imply that the Bowyer contract is all but a done deal. "I feel good about everything we're doing," Waltrip said at Dover International Speedway last week.

Wow, so Baltimore City and Howard County are going to ban drinks with alcohol and caffeine that are sold in a single can already mixed together ( "Alcohol with caffeine is banned," Dec. 1). That's sure to stop anyone from drinking something that has alcohol and caffeine in it — forever! Or at least as long as no one figures out you can mix vodka and Red Bull together in a glass. Or coffee and Irish whiskey. William Smith, Baltimore

Lee Kenny has always fancied himself an artist. It took an energy drink to get his creative aspirations off the ground. Two years ago, Kenny, a house painter from Pasadena, had plenty of work, a great girlfriend and a gratifyingly busy life. But a strange idea possessed him. He wanted to build a flying machine and see if he could get it in the air. "I had the design finished," says Kenny, who hoped to enter his creation in a mock aviation contest. "It would be shaped like a jet and have removable wings.

THE Wall Street Journal recently published a story about the marketing of malt liquor to youthful drinkers in the inner city. According to the story, brewers are using rap heroes like Ice Cube and the Geto Boys to push such malts as Red Bull, St. Ides, Olde English 800 and King Cobra to black youths (many not old enough to legally purchase alcoholic beverages). Sales are aided by mom-and-pop stores where clerks look the other way when serving young customers, according to the report.The malts, which have a higher alcohol content than beer (about 4.5 percent, to beer's 3.5 percent and wine's 13 percent)

They claim to "give you wings," "unleash the beast" and propel you to attack life at "full throttle," but the bevy of energy drinks on the market could provide more than a turbo-charged rush. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University say some of the wildly popular beverages contain potentially harmful levels of caffeine - as much as 14 cans of Coca-Cola. In a review article appearing in this month's issue of the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, the researchers say the drinks should carry warning labels displaying their caffeine content and possible health risks, such as nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, rapid heartbeat and tremors.

Standing outside a warehouse in Glen Burnie last week, Ron Furman was sculpting down a piece of foam. It was a little more than one week before Red Bull Flugtag would come to Baltimore, and Furman, engineer Dan Hayes and the other members of this team were working on deadline. If all went as planned, the foam, along with some other framework, a large propeller, four wheels and one pilot, would form a giant crab-mobile. This Saturday, it will become airborne -- for more than a few seconds, they hope.

Flugtag. It's a funny-sounding word for a quirky event that is expected to take over the City of Brotherly Love this Saturday. Red Bull Flugtag, a competition where teams make human-powered flying machines and pilot them off a 30-foot-high deck into the water below, has attracted spectators in 35 cities worldwide since its 1991 beginning in Vienna, Austria. Past contraptions have been fashioned to resemble flying tacos and Winnebagos with wings. The longest "flight" this year has been 207 feet, but the originality is definitely there.

Figuring out the emotional state of an NFL team is always tricky. Players can look listless all week in practice and come out on game day running around like gerbils on Red Bull. Or they can look focused and fired up in practice and come out for the opening kickoff looking like everyone needs a nap. Which brings us to tonight's big game between the Ravens and Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. (Updated Lambeau weather forecast: cold, snow, wind. This forecast good through April.

Sitting on a bench in front of his Finart Studios art gallery in Fells Point, Charles Lawrance looks uneasy. In a few days, with the aid of a couple of friends and maybe a little energy drink, he will climb inside Finnister, a handmade, human-powered flying machine, fling himself off a 25-foot ramp into the air above New York's Hudson River, and see just how far he can fly. Lawrance, 33, admits he's a little anxious. But it's not from fear about his personal safety. In fact, he seems more worried about his creation.

SAN FRANCISCO --Scott Speed is a skinny 23-year-old from Manteca, Calif., who, standing at the go-cart track above Sonoma County's Infineon Raceway, looked like a lot of other gearheads. His battered jeans made his worn-out baseball cap look positively pristine. Speed was generous in thanking the people who helped get him where he is. Where he is sitting these days is near enough to the top of the racing world that he can see it without binoculars. As the first American to race full time in Formula One since Michael Andretti in 1993, he can rub elbows with Michael Schumacher, the driver whose estimated annual income of $81 million puts him behind only Tiger Woods in the world of sports.

Should you see Yes Man? Well, maybe. Let's be clear: If ever a movie mistook a premise for a plot, it's this one. Some films suffer from a surfeit of one-liners. This picture evaporates midway through because the story itself is a one-liner. Yet it also has a cast that gets into the silliness. This film's lead actors can turn odd curves into dynamite goofballs. It's all about the grooviness that descends on a negative guy, Carl Allen (Jim Carrey), a bank loan officer in Los Angeles, when he makes a covenant with self-help guru Terrence Bundley (Terence Stamp)
