Shav Glick, whose insightful coverage of motor sports for The Times made him nearly as famous as the racing stars he chronicled, died Saturday at his Pasadena home of complications from melanoma, said his companion, Doris Syme. He was 87. "He was the authority. You wanted to be noticed by Shav Glick. He certainly had my respect," legendary race car driver Mario Andretti said Saturday. "I'll always remember him very, very fondly."

As if Jeremy Mayfield didn't have enough problems with NASCAR, a technical inspection of the car he drove to victory in the NAPA Auto Parts 500 on Sunday showed that it was too low. NASCAR rules require Winston Cup cars be 51 inches high when measured at a point 10 inches behind the windshield. Mayfield's wasn't. At least after the finish.

Dan Gurney's long list of accomplishments in auto racing includes an obscure but interesting footnote: He was the first driver to spray champagne into the crowd from the victory podium. In 1967, after winning at Le Mans, the son of a Metropolitan Opera singer originated one of the sport's most operatic traditions. "I was caught up in the excitement," Gurney says of the exuberant gesture that has been emulated by winners worldwide ever since.

Parnelli Jones is disappointed by the one thing in auto racing that bothers him. NASCAR doesn't send him a hard card that allows him entry into its events. Never mind that Jones won plenty of the organization's stock car races. "CART sends me a hard card every year. So does the IRL. USAC gives me a lifetime card," Jones says, warming up to his subject like an old roadster readying to peel out of pit lane. "NASCAR has never done anything like that for me.

USA Track & Field's board of directors voted unanimously Wednesday to ban for life athletes who test positive for steroids. The zero-tolerance policy also would ban the athletes' coaches. The proposal will go to a USATF subcommittee and from there to the full federation for a final vote Sunday, the last day of the group's annual meeting at Greensboro, N.C.
