It seems that NASCAR can have an unapologetic feud without the contentious crossfire (see Richard Childress/Kyle Busch ). Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers did a little bumping and grinding at Sonoma last weekend, and while it probably wasn't a very good idea from a practical standpoint — Stewart is precariously on the bubble trying to qualify for the Chase; Vickers needs a ride for next season — you have to admire their unabashed style...

The competition on the track is fierce in Winston Cup racing, but it's just as fierce off the track as car owners try to sign the best talent. In recent years, Jack Roush has proved his ability to judge young drivers. But the first to make the biggest impact was Rick Hendrick, who first grabbed the late Tim Richmond, who blazed as hot as a bonfire. And then Jeff Gordon, in 1991, when he was 20. Richmond, before becoming ill, accumulated nine of his 13 victories with Hendrick in two seasons.

This would have been Edwin Mulitalo's type of game. The Cleveland Browns struggle against the run, and Mulitalo especially likes to run-block, but unfortunately for the Ravens' third-year guard, he will have to watch. Mulitalo had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee yesterday and is expected to miss seven to 10 days. There was a slight fear the injury would be worse, so coach Brian Billick felt the Ravens (3-2) caught a break, with Mulitalo expected to miss only Sunday's game at Cleveland (3-2)

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.

FORT WORTH, Texas — The question people were asking Brian Vickers was, "Will you be able to race again?" The question Vickers was asking himself was, "Do I want to race again?" That might seem like a silly question, Vickers said this week, for a then-26-year-old who began racing karts at age 8 and missed his high school prom to compete at one of NASCAR's most distinctive tracks — Bristol Motor Speedway — in the Busch Grand National Series, and placed 14th. "But when you've gone through all that," Vickers said, "you start looking at your life from a different perspective.

Brian Vickers ignored the first sign something was wrong. He felt chest pains and shortness of breath, but because the pain was at times less intense than at others, Vickers figured it was something that would go away on its own. Or something that wasn't a big deal. "I woke up and being young and 26, I thought I was invincible," the NASCAR driver said. "So I just went back to sleep, brushed it off." Eventually, he had to notice. Vickers suffered from two life-threatening blood clots.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Midway through the final lap yesterday, more than 150,000 people gave out the strangest crowd reaction to a finish in the 37-year history of Talladega Superspeedway. They went nearly completely silent, gazing blankly at a cloud of dust rising from the backstretch. Seconds earlier they'd been jubilant but anxious as their favorite, Dale Earnhardt Jr., tried to hold off Jimmie Johnson for the win in the UAW-Ford 500. Either way it turned out, Earnhardt and Johnson both seemed sure to gain badly needed ground in the standings and liven up the Chase for the Nextel Cup. Then both were wrecked by a non-contender for the championship.

Although it looks as if Ravens coach Brian Billick has settled on Kipp Vickers at right guard and Sammy Williams at right tackle, a form of the right-side offensive rotation will likely continue. Previously, guard Bennie Anderson and tackle Erik Williams had been rotating with Vickers and Williams. But Erik Williams was inactive for Sunday's 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Anderson was in for just a handful of plays, leaving the vast majority of playing time to Vickers and Sammy Williams.

If someone told Donald Vickers three years ago that he'd be "slamming" poems some day, he would have assumed that meant smacking a poetry book onto a desk. But today, Vickers, who has a bright red streak in his hair and goes by the pseudonym "Leprechaun," believes slam poetry offers young people a fresh format for speaking their minds. "Slamming is important," said Vickers, a 16-year-old junior at North Harford High School. "It allows us to see society from other perspectives and to exercise our freedom of speech.
