Will the Indianapolis Motor Speedway finally smile on Sam Hornish Jr.? As Hornish and his rivals qualify today, purportedly for all 33 spots in the May 28 Indianapolis 500, Hornish again stands out as a favorite to win the historic race -- and perhaps as the best Indy Racing League driver to never have won it. Now in his seventh season in IRL, Hornish already has won the championship twice, in 2001 and 2002. He has also won 14 races. But the Indianapolis 500 has eluded him.

Jeff Gordon knows he's running out of time to win a fifth NASCAR championship. Gordon, the onetime "Boy Wonder" who captured his four titles in NASCAR's premier series between 1995 and 2001, hasn't won another since the series became the Sprint Cup Series and adopted the "Chase for the Cup" title playoff format in 2004. It hasn't been for lack of trying. Gordon finished second in the point standings in 2007 and third last year, but he's had to watch as Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson won an unprecedented four consecutive championships from 2006 through last season.
