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.

Nearing the end of its annual 90-day session, the General Assembly gave final approval last night to $10 million in subsidies for the racing industry and a plan to allow a third thoroughbred racing track in Maryland.The House of Delegates also signed off on a 30 cents-a-pack cigarette tax increase, which will generate about $77 million a year in state revenue. It is the first major tax boost since the recession year of 1992, when the state increased taxes on tobacco, gasoline and income.Both measures go to Gov. Parris N. Glendening for his promised signature.
