There have been distractions aplenty for everyone at Evernham Motorsports this season. The nearly season-long battle of words and wills between team owner Ray Evernham and driver Jeremy Mayfield caused everyone considerable anguish and frustration, while Kasey Kahne's late-season swoon has added to the burden. Mayfield is gone now, replaced by Elliott Sadler after a bitter parting and an out-of-court settlement with Evernham.

Ray Evernham should be enjoying a triumphant return to Lowe's Motor Speedway this weekend. It was here, after all, that Kasey Kahne won NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600 a year ago in an Evernham Dodge, breaking a string of four consecutive victories by Jimmie Johnson of Hendrick Motorsports. That helped Kahne make the Chase for the Nextel Cup, during which he also won the fall race at the 1.5-mile Lowe's oval. Scott Riggs, another of Evernham's drivers, won the pole position at both races last year.

When the tabloid stuff hit the fan, Ray Evernham, who owns a Dodge team in Nextel Cup stock car racing, found an unlikely ally in Kurt Busch, probably the most disliked driver in NASCAR. "Kurt came up and shook my hand at Watkins Glen and said, 'Man, you're a good guy. I know what you're going through and it's unfair,' " Evernham recalled last week at California Speedway. "It made me feel good."

It was 500 days ago that Ray Evernham was given the go-ahead for an improbable task--to build a new Dodge Intrepid race car from scratch in time for the 2001 Daytona 500. Mission accomplished. Evernham's hand-picked driver, a reputedly over-the-hill Bill Elliott, drove one of Evernham Motorsports' Intrepids 183.565 mph Saturday, faster than any of the Fords, Chevrolets or Pontiacs that have been competing for years at Daytona International Speedway.

Jeff Gordon has already shown that he can win without Ray Evernham. He did it in his first race without the man who had managed his career since they went to NASCAR in 1991. Evernham will have to wait until 2001 to see if he can win without Gordon. The man who crewed the No. 24 Chevrolet to 47 Winston Cup victories is now the point man in the return of Dodge to NASCAR after an absence of more than 20 years by Chrysler brands.
