Less than a week after Mark Martin revealed that he would continue his Nextel Cup career with another team, Roush Racing announced the veteran driver's replacement for 2007. David Ragan, born four years after Martin's debut on NASCAR's premier circuit, was introduced yesterday as the heir to the No. 6 Ford. The car has been the flagship for team owner Jack Roush since his program's inception in 1988. Ragan, 20, has competed for the team in the Craftsman Truck Series this season, and made his Nextel Cup debut at Dover International Speedway last month.

Carl Edwards may be in his first full season on the NASCAR Nextel Cup circuit, but the 25-year-old handled reporters like a seasoned professional during a visit to Dave & Buster's yesterday to promote the coming race weekend at Dover International Speedway. Coming off his third-place finish in the Craftsman Truck Series standings last season, Edwards said that he began the new year with several goals in sight. He accomplished one by getting his first Nextel Cup victory in the fourth race of the season in Atlanta.

DOVER, Del. - Could it really be true love between Denny Hamlin and Dover? So far, it's at least a crush. His performance Sunday will determine the fate of this relationship. Trying his best to adjust his approach toward his least-favorite track, Hamlin's reignited courtship produced fantastic results Saturday when he turned a lap of 159.299 m.p.h. to win the pole at Dover International Speedway. Hamlin has been open in his disdain for the one-mile concrete oval and knew he'd have to conquer his Dover demons to keep his driven bid for his first career Cup championship rolling along.

KEVIN HARVICK attracted more attention than is usual for a reigning Sprint Cup champion prior to last Sunday's Talladega race. Harvick suggested the Cup series schedule should be shaken up. Asked how he thought NASCAR can grow its fan base, Harvick replied that his understanding is last season's final three races (Texas, Phoenix and Homestead) were sold out. Then he said, "If you want to talk about growing the sport, I believe that some venues need one race. The schedule needs to be mixed up. People like things that change.

Jason Anderson cracked jokes during meetings and volunteered to help coworkers. He put in extra hours to further his career, and spent the last five years leading the office of ticket sales at Dover International Speedway. Most of all, his colleagues said, he loved being a father. Anderson, his wife, and their 1-year-old son were on their way home to Delaware from visiting family in the Philadelphia area early Sunday when their car slid into a jackknifed tractor-trailer on an icy stretch of the Blue Route.

DOVER, Del. - A grand jury clearing Tony Stewart of any criminal intent in the death of sprint-car driver Kevin Ward Jr. last month is a relief to Stewart and his NASCAR racing colleagues. Ward died when he was hit by Stewart's car during a caution period in a race last month at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park. "I know 100 percent in my heart and in my mind that I did not do anything wrong. This was 100 percent an accident," Stewart told the Associated Press on Thursday in his first interview since the grand jury's decision was announced Wednesday.

ROBIN PEMBERTON has been NASCAR's vice president of competition and racing development for 10 years. It's a stressful job that includes handling complaints and disciplining drivers and race teams. Prior to moving into his VP position, Pemberton was a Cup series crew chief for Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin and Kyle Petty. So Pemberton always will be empathetic toward crew chiefs for the stress they endure, particularly during the Chase. Prior to races crew chiefs probably make hundreds of decisions regarding their teams.

DOVER, Del. - Maybe Dover International Speedway should rename the racetrack Jimmie Johnson's Playground. Johnson led 272 laps, including the last 34, to win the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks race to boost his record collection of Dover Sprint Cup series victories to nine. It was also Johnson's second consecutive win this year after an 0-for-11 start. Johnson now has enough Monster Mile trophies - a 3-foot high, gray, menacing, concrete monster crushing a race car in its right hand - to open a gift shop.

READY FOR some musical "Hot Fun in the Summertime"? How much can you take? Afford? Festival-mania heats up, fowl-weather-phobic acts come out of hibernation and large-capacity, lawn-enhanced "sheds" like the Mann (now solidly booked with good acts) and the Susquehanna Bank Center reopen for the season. Hardly a day or night will go by this summer without several interesting options. These 14 have larger-than-life (you'll be talking about this for weeks) potential: 7th Annual Roots Picnic, May 31. Will the Roots shizzle with Snoop Dogg?

DARRELL WALLACE Jr.'s victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville, Va., Saturday would have attracted attention under normal circumstances. Wallace is a young (20), talented racer, which NASCAR needs. That Wallace is product of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity program focused greater attention on his victory. Wallace is the first African-American to win a NASCAR race since Wendell Scott won at Jacksonville, Fla., in 1963. Talk about long overdue . . . "This means everything," Wallace said.

DOVER, Del. - For 375 laps, the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers kept circling Dover International Speedway's 1-mile oval without collisions or rancor. There were no wrecks, no driver mad at another. Then, following only the fourth caution period of the AAA 400, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. kept the estimated crowd of 75,000 on their feet. Earnhardt, the track-recordbreaking pole-sitter, stalked teammate Johnson within a few car lengths. The final caution erased Johnson's 5-second advantage over Earnhardt.

LONG POND, Pa. - Jimmie Johnson absolutely dominated Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his third victory of the season. The Sprint Cup points leader, Johnson pulled away on both of the last two restarts over the final 10 laps of the Party in the Poconos 400 to pull into Victory Lane at Pocono for the first time since 2004. Johnson also won the Daytona 500 as well as the STP Gas Booster 500 at Martinsville this season. He led for 128 of 160 laps for his 63d career Cup victory, and was never seriously challenged.
