NASCAR drivers reacted with concern and anger yesterday about conditions at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, where fellow driver J.D. McDuffie died Sunday.McDuffie was killed during The Budweiser at The Glen when his Pontiac went out of control near Turn 5, the fastest portion of the track, skidded across a grassy area and slammed into a cable fence fronted by a wall of tires.Dave Marcis, one of McDuffie's closest friends on the circuit, said from his shop in Buncombe County, N.C., yesterday: "You just don't figure J.D. to get in a situation like that.

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Longtime stock car racer John Delphus "J.D." McDuffie was killed yesterday when his car became airborne and smashed into a tire wall and guardrail five laps into the Budweiser at the Glen NASCAR Winston Cup race.It appeared in television replays that McDuffie's left front tire came off, triggering a 160-mph slide off the Watkins Glen International track at the end of the long straightaway -- the fastest part of the 2.428-mile, seven-turn road course.His car skidded through the grassy area in turn five, cutting little speed, if any. The Pontiac flipped into the air and the driver's side slammed into the tire wall and adjoining guardrail before coming to rest on its roof.

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. - Tony Stewart is making a joke of NASCAR's unofficial effort to keep the competition running as close to each other as possible. Stewart won yesterday's Sirius Satellite Radio at The Glen by two football fields - and it wasn't even that close - to extend one of the most remarkable stretches in NASCAR history. He's now won five of the past seven races, having led the most laps in six of those and hasn't finished out of the top 10 in more than two months. So dialed in are Stewart and his crew that in the past eight races, they've earned all but 89 of the available championship points, which is how they've reached Tiger Woods status.

Does it look too perfect to be real, like a carefully contrived set for some moviedom Shangri-la? Or a scene you might dream up as an ideal spot for contemplation? That's sort of the idea behind this and the other works in photographer Joseph Hyde's exhibit to open Tuesday at Gilman School's Clock Gallery.The show is called "Land of Nod," and, according to Hyde, it "features images inspired by an 1895 nursery rhyme by Robert Louis Stevenson about an imaginary world that children can visit only through dreams at bedtime."

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. - Tony Stewart thrust a gloved fist out of his bright orange Pontiac late yesterday afternoon, but it did not hit anyone this time. Stewart got to take a victory lap at the end of a terrible week, and he was pumping his fist in jubilation. One week after NASCAR and Stewart's sponsor fined him and put him on probation for punching a newspaper photographer, Stewart won a grinding Winston Cup race at Watkins Glen International, holding off a hard-driving rookie and a road-course demon.

Once long ago, I was in a car crash. For months afterward, every time I looked in the rearview mirror when stopped at a light, I cringed, absolutely sure any car rolling up behind me was going to plow into my car's rear bumper. Maybe you know what I'm talking about. Winston Cup driver Geoffrey Bodine obviously doesn't. But then, Bodine is a race-car driver, which means he is operating on a much different level. The last time we saw Bodine, Feb. 18, he was flying through the air, a rag doll strapped in the seat of his mangled Craftsman truck at Daytona International Speedway.
