Mark Martin passed Dale Earnhardt 38 laps from the end and held on yesterday to win the Holly Farms 400. Martin maintained a 16-point lead over Earnhardt in the duel for the $1 million NASCAR Winston Cup championship. Earnhardt led all but 70 of the first 362 laps on the .625-mile North Wilkesboro Speedway oval, and appeared to be on the way to his ninth victory of the year. But Martin, who lost ground midway through the race with an extra pit stop for a chassis adjustment, kept his cool and remained in the hunt for his first series title.

Alain Prost earned his 50th Formula One triumph yesterday and increased his championship lead, but he said that he was disappointed the victory had not gone to Damon Hill.

Hill was leading at the time, cheered by about 70,000 British fans, with the Frenchman one second behind. As Hill walked dejectedly away from his car, the fans knew it was Prost's race.

Rusty Wallace rallied after his Ford ran out of gas and the engine cut off, charging back to win the Miller Genuine Draft 400 yesterday at Michigan International Speedway. Wallace dropped from first place to 11th in the NASCAR Winston Cup race when his Penske South team had to push his car to get the engine to catch. That came when all the front-runners pitted on the 176th of 200 laps during the last of seven caution periods. Wallace, maneuvering spectacularly through traffic on the 2-mile track after the restart on Lap 182, steadily picked off the cars ahead of him. The decisive pass before a cheering crowd estimated at 120,000 came on Lap 197, when Wallace whipped inside of leader Dale Earnhardt's Chevrolet going through treacherous Turn 3, a trouble spot of slick pavement that victimized 11 drivers.

The Pontiac Grand Prix comes in sedan form for 1990, and this sporty new midsize four-door is quite a compelling package. It is roomy, good-looking and responsive. And it looks like a good value. The base LE model I tested offered such standard equipment as an automatic transmission, air conditioning, a stereo, four-wheel disc brakes and a fully independent suspension system for a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $14,564. The LE's pleasant pricing, suggests Pontiac spokesman Reg Harris, reflects the fierce competition the Grand Prix has to deal with in the midsize-family- car segment.
