A couple of Winston Cup drivers stepped down in class to run in the California 200 for Winston West stock cars Saturday at California Speedway and stole the show. Ricky Craven, driving a Ford, passed Ken Schrader's Chevy for the lead on the 73rd of 100 laps, then cruised to victory when Schrader ducked into the pits for fresh tires during a caution period. "We pitted 'cause we weren't going to get around him," Schrader said of Craven. "We had to try something."

Cal Wells III said his Rancho Santa Margarita-based PPI Motorsports team will not participate in the CART FedEx Championship series in 2001. He did not rule out a future return though.

Pontiac, the General Motors car that won two of the last three NASCAR Winston Cup championships, will no longer be factory supported, GM announced Tuesday. Only five Pontiacs raced in this year's series and GM officials said that the move for 2004 was being made to "further advance and solidify" their support for the Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Tony Stewart won the 2002 and Bobby Labonte the 2000 championship in Pontiacs owned by Joe Gibbs but Gibbs switched to Chevrolet for this season.

Jeff Gordon had just enough gas and just enough car to win Sunday's TranSouth Financial 400 at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, S.C. Gordon, the defending Winston Cup champion, dueled throughout the latter part of the 293-lap race with current series leader Dale Jarrett, who lost his shot at the victory when he tagged the fourth-turn wall nine laps from the end.
