Out for a Spin
Carl Edwards jumped for joy last Saturday after winning the Busch Series'
Sharpie Mini 300 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. A day later, when the Car
of Tomorrow made its debut on the Nextel Cup circuit (page 81), Kyle Busch
(inset) took the Food City 500 checkered flag at the same track, marking the
600th win for Chevrolet in Cup racing.
Chicago Rush quarterback Matt D'Orazio eluded the New York Dragons' Will Holder
with a carom shot off the boards and into the end zone in his team's 61--40
Arena Football League victory on March 18 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
D'Orazio also passed for six touchdowns.

thunderstorm brought a fifth-inning halt to their spring training game against
the Padres in usually sunny Peoria, Ariz.
