Baltimore residents might never know how much money the city's second Grand Prix race generated or how it affected local hotels, restaurants and other businesses. A spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Tuesday that the city would not commission an economic impact study of this year's Labor Day weekend event, as it did last year for the inaugural racing festival. City and racing officials also said they might not publicly reveal the number of spectators; last year 160,000 people attended over the three days.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Dale Earnhardt looked as if he could have run all night, and for a while yesterday it looked as if he would have to.Darkness was closing in on the rain-delayed Twin 125-mile races here by the time Earnhardt's black-as-night Chevy Lumina crossed the finish line just in front of Ernie Irvan to capture the second race.Pole-sitter Davey Allison proved he was more than a one-lap wonder by winning from flag to flag in the first race. But it was Richard Petty, the people's choice, who once again had the crowd on its feet when he nosed out Hut Stricklin for second place in the opener.

The race committee boat at the Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship is called Full Moon. But what the committee and the 42-boat field lacked from morning to midafternoon yesterday was full sails. Light winds delayed the start of competition for four hours, giving sailors bobbing at the mouth of the Severn River time to work on their tans, do a little office work on their cell phones and visit with each other. Even when the starting gun finally sounded to mark the first of five days of racing, the 4-knot breezes barely filled the sails of the 22-foot boats as they made their way toward the Eastern Shore.

ATHENS - Sailors truly needed a weatherman to know which way the wind was blowing yesterday in Olympic competition. The notorious Meltemi arrived, blowing at a steady 18 knots and gusting to 25. It ricocheted around the watery bowl known as the Saronic Gulf, turbocharging some boats and swamping about 30 others. The Meltemi, which means "air with no route," is expected to continue today. "It was a very hard day today," said Croatia's Carlo Kuret, in third place in the Finn class. "The wind shifts were very unpredictable.

The eight boats in the Cadillac Columbus Cup opened fleet racing yesterday afternoon in conditions that left some of the best sailors in the world wondering just exactly when things went wrong -- or for that matter, when things began to go right.The cause of the confusion, said Chris Law of England, was extreme wind shifts that developed over the course as two breezes fought each other, forcing the skippers to guess which side of the course would be favored.Buddy Melges of Wisconsin, whose sailing resume reads like a world atlas, won the first of two races yesterday in the weeklong competition that includes eight teams from the United States, Spain, France, England and Canada.

The first round of gleaming racecars will roar through downtown streets early Friday, marking the start of the second annual three-day open-wheel racing festival — and a victory for city officials and organizers who struggled to resurrect the event after last year's financial flop. The chain-link fence encircling the two-mile stretch of roads near the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards will open at 7:30 a.m. Friday, and cars will speed through practice laps and qualifying races until 7 p.m. Saturday will feature the American Le Mans Series, patterned after the storied French race, and Sunday will culminate with the Izod IndyCar Series race, the main event in which Will Power is expected to defend his title.

ATHENS -- Kevin Hall wasn't sure he was coming to the Olympics until July 7, the day Olympic and anti-doping officials cleared him for competition. Hall, of Bowie, is a survivor of testicular cancer and must take weekly injections of testosterone to replace what his body no longer produces. But the veteran America's Cup sailor prevailed in a lengthy appeals process and yesterday made his Olympic debut. Three of the nine yachting classes set sail yesterday under a cloudless blue sky: Finn, Yngling and men's and women's double-handed dinghy-470.

Barring the unforeseen happening today or tomorrow, Ken Read of Portsmouth, R.I., appears to have a lock on the J/24 World Championship.After four races in the six-race series, Read has finished 1-2-1-6. Oddly enough, his closest competitor at this stage of the regatta, Jim Brady of Annapolis, has finished 2-39-5-2 and stood in fifth place pending protests after yesterday's two races."It looks like Brady is the main competitor," Read said. "With a throw-out, he is right there. But that is no great surprise."

Ryan Fogelsonger wasted no time returning to the winner's circle after serving a suspension. Last year's Eclipse Award winner as the nation's leading apprentice continued his success as a journeyman yesterday, riding three winners, including Pickupspeed in the featured $100,000 Jennings Handicap at rain-swept Pimlico. On his first card since serving the penalty for a riding infraction, Fogelsonger picked up the mount on Pickupspeed from trainer Larry Murray after the popular P Day was scratched from the Jennings.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Edgar Prado and Jose Santos walked side by side from the jockey's room to the paddock yesterday for the second race at Belmont Park. Bettors who lined the fence cried out: "Jose, not guilty, Jose." ... "Jose, don't worry. You beat 'em fair and square, man." ... "Screw Kentucky. We love you here in New York, baby." Santos, as they say, rode the hair off his mount, New York-bred Our Breadwinner at odds of 7-1, and won the second race after an all-out stretch battle. As fans cheered the smiling jockey in the winner's circle, Prado walked slowly back to the jockey's room and addressed the Santos controversy.
