At some point Saturday night, 16-year-old John Kinder hopes his stock car apprenticeship will end. Then, he'll cease to be a novelty, a boy racing against men. He'll be just one of the guys. After two previous trial runs--races in which his main objective was simply to learn, not contend--Kinder will be racing for real Saturday night on the half-mile paved oval at Bakersfield's Mesa Marin Speedway.

"Political satire often lacks an edge," laments Eric Lefcowitz, 33, whose previous accomplishments include a tongue-in-cheek handbook for the politically correct. "I wanted to do something that couldn't be misinterpreted." Hence, the calendar: "Flip the Bird: A One-Finger Salute to 1994" (Terra Firma Press, $11.95). Part of the profits go to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, a media watchdog group. The salute's history is unclear.

When John Kinder of Santa Ana was selected to drive in NASCAR's invitation-only Suzuka Thunder Special stock car exhibition race in Japan against Winston Cup regulars Nov. 23, it had special meaning for the 22-year-old. Kinder, last year's Winston West rookie of the year, is of Japanese-American descent and the Suzuka race will be the first time he has been to Japan. His 82-year-old grandmother, Toshi Mori, will accompany him and serve as his interpreter.

The San Diego Museum of Art's new exhibition, "Pacific Parallels: Artists and the Landscape in New Zealand," introduces landscape art of the South Seas island nation as having evolved on a course parallel to that of North American art from the mid-19th-Century to the present. First there are the 19th-Century picturesque odes to nature, those glorious, fairly faithful visions that owe much to the British painting tradition.

He won't be confused with Dale Earnhardt or Jeff Gordon, but John Kinder of Orange probably will be as popular as those NASCAR stars this weekend. Kinder was one of 31 drivers selected to compete in the second Suzuka Thunder Special on Sunday (Saturday PST) in Suzuka City, Japan. "We've been a pretty consistent runner in Winston West," Kinder said, "and the Japanese-American ancestry doesn't hurt."

John KINDER was cagey about what happened on spring break two years ago. "I had a good time" was all he would tell me about his visit to Panama City Beach, Fla., a popular stop on the party circuit. But this spring break, the sophomore at Indiana University in Bloomington plans to pursue a different beach activity: studying sea turtles as a volunteer on a conservation project in Costa Rica. "I didn't want to wake up each day with a hangover," he joked.
