In a third case involving mainly immigrant workers, a union lost an election at Ultra Wheel Co. of Buena Park, but won the National Labor Relations Board's help in pressing unfair labor practice charges against the aluminum car wheel manufacturer. The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers union had sought to organize Ultra Wheel's 329 workers, 90% of whom are Latino immigrants, saying they were paid low wages with no health insurance, and were forced to eat meals at their machines.

It's unusual for a race-car driver to swing for the fences the way Ted Musgrave and his Ultra Motorsports crew did Saturday, but the Wisconsin native hit one out of the park. Musgrave, who started from the 17th of 18 rows because he changed engines before the race, drove through the pack and won the American Racing Wheels 200 in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. With Brendan Gaughan finishing second, it gave Dodge a 1-2 finish.

But as a race car driver, he is an internationalist with a determination to live his life at speed.
