Kurt Busch isn't going to make this year's Chase for the Nextel Cup, but the series' 2004 champion still has plenty to prove. The Las Vegas driver ignored the triple-digit heat in Fontana and won the pole position Friday for Sunday's Sony HD 500 NASCAR race at the California Speedway. "It was a really good run," said Busch, whose lap of 184.540 mph in a Dodge bested the 43-car field that will start the race at 5 p.m. and finish under the lights at the two-mile, D-shaped oval.

If clocks had not been moved back an hour at midnight Saturday, the Marlboro 500 would be history, a $1-million champion would be crowned and CART would be celebrating the close of its season at an awards banquet tonight. But that pesky hour gained overnight came into play Sunday when misty drizzle descended on California Speedway around noon and brought what had been a dazzling display of speed to a halt after only 33 of the scheduled 250 laps.

Jamal Lewis , Dorsey Levens and two other former NFL players have sued the league over brain injuries that they say left them struggling with medical problems years after their playing days ended. Lewis and Levens, along with Fulton Kuykendall and Ryan Stewart , filed the lawsuit against the National Football League and NFL Properties LLC this week in U.S. District Court in Atlanta. The players maintain the NFL knew as early as the 1920s of the potential for concussions to harm its players but only went public last year.

From Barney Oldfield to Parnelli Jones to John Force, from the board tracks of Beverly Hills and Culver City to the big ovals of Ontario and Fontana, from the streets of Santa Monica to those of Long Beach, Southern California has been on cutting edge of motor racing in the United States.
