WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. - Marcos Ambrose should be on pins and needles. He says he's not. "No, not at all," Ambrose said Sunday after NASCAR postponed the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International. "It keeps me relaxed. You can't fight the weather, so I just worry about stuff you can control. " Steady rain began just when the race was scheduled to start at 1 p.m. and did not abate in time for track crews to dry the 2.45-mile racing surface. They did give it a shot with jet driers that got the front straightaway nearly race-ready, but a second front moved in. The race is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday, but rain also is in the forecast in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

Paul Tracy won the CART drivers' championship when closest rival Bruno Junqueira crashed with 10 laps left in the Gold Coast Indy at Surfer's Paradise, Australia. American rookie Ryan Hunter-Reay was the winner in a race cut short by thunderstorms and hail the size of marbles. Hunter-Reay beat another rookie, Darren Manning of England, by 1.546 seconds for his first CART victory. Tracy finished 13th, two laps behind the winner. But his 28-point lead over Junqueira entering the race meant Junqueira had to pick up at least seven points to send the title chase to the final event at Fontana, Calif.

BIG EAST commissioner John Marinatto said yesterday he has been in constant contact with Dan Beebe of the Big 12 and John Swofford of the Atlantic Coast Conference in recent days and has suggested the three meet to discuss conference realignment. Marinatto didn't reveal details about his conversations with his fellow commissioners. Beebe's conference, which nearly was wiped out last year when the Pac-10 expanded, is in danger of losing Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference.

LONG POND, Pa. - Brandon Igdalsky is wondering just how committed IndyCar racing fans are. When Pocono Raceway announced IndyCar racing would return to the track last year for the first time since 1989 the track president and CEO said "excitement was through the roof. " Attendance for last year's race won by Scott Dixon was respectable, around 25,000. Expectations were fans who enjoyed the 220-mph open-wheel racing would return and likely bring more fans. Instead, Igdalsky said yesterday ticket sales for tomorrow's Pocono IndyCar 500 are "down quite a bit. " "Fans need to put their money where the mouth is," he said.

IN HER fourth tournament since sitting out 49 weeks because of injury and illness, Serena Williams won the Rogers Cup in Toronto, beating Samantha Stosur, 6-4, 6-2. A foot injury and then blood clots in her lungs sidelined the 29-year-old American after she won Wimbledon last year. Now she's won two straight tournaments after taking the Stanford title July 31. The formerly top-ranked Williams, a 13-time Grand Slam champion, was unseeded in the tournament and is ranked just 80th in the world as she continues her comeback.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ryan Hunter-Reay and Marco Andretti watched the number of Indianapolis 500 qualifying spots dwindle in the final minutes of Bump Day last weekend, and the Andretti Autosport teammates knew one of them could end up knocking the other out of the race. "We were talking about that this may come down to cannibalism," Hunter-Reay said. It didn't come down to cannibalism. It came down to politics. And money. Hunter-Reay's No. 28 Honda was indeed knocked out of the centennial anniversary of the 500 when Andretti snatched the last spot in the 33-car field just as qualifying ended.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan is conflicted over green-white-checkered flag finishes. Kanaan won his first Indy 500 under caution Sunday in an anticlimactic ending to a thrilling race. There were a record 68 lead changes, with the last one coming when Kanaan slid around Ryan Hunter-Reay on a restart with three laps remaining. Moments later, Dario Franchitti's crash brought out the caution and the race ended with Kanaan following the pace car around Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the final two laps of the 500-mile race.

LONG POND, Pa. - Whether there will be an IndyCar series race at Pocono Raceway next August significantly depends upon the attendance for yesterday's entertaining race. The crowd appeared to be similar to two years ago when the first IndyCar race at Pocono since 1989 attracted 20,000 to 25,000. There was no word last night from Pocono officials about whether yesterday's crowd for the ABC Supply 500 was big enough to warrant IndyCar returning. The Pocono crowd clearly was larger than races this year at Milwaukee (about 12,000)

Moments later, he offered a brief plea amid growing safety questions about Leffler's death at the dirt-track race.

INDIANAPOLIS - Tony Kanaan had one more lap, one anticlimactic last lap under the yellow caution flag, to end 12 years of frustration in the Indianapolis 500. He flipped up his visor to wipe away tears as the crowd roared its approval, and then in Victory Lane he gave his bride of two months a long kiss and poured the celebratory winner's milk over his head. Kanaan is Indy's hard-luck loser no more. He is its champion at last, fittingly with a dose of good luck for a change. "I have to say, the last lap was the longest lap of my life," Kanaan said.

HAMPTON, Ga. - Denny Hamlin won his second straight Sprint Cup race, holding off Jeff Gordon in a green-white-checkered finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night. Martin Truex Jr. appeared to be positioned for his first win since 2007 until Jamie McMurray smashed the wall on the front straightaway, bringing out a caution with three laps to go. The leaders went to pit road, and Hamlin's crew got him back on the track first, just ahead of Truex. While Truex struggled to get up to speed on the restart, Hamlin pulled away with Gordon right on his bumper.

THIS IS A WEEK my Daily News sports colleagues dread. I frequently remind them Sunday is "the greatest day in sports, the Indianapolis 500 followed by the Coca-Cola 600?…?1,100 miles of racin' !" From early afternoon until late night, race cars go, go, go. First, IndyCars hurry around famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A little after 6 p.m., the NASCAR Sprint Car rumble at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Indy 500 is gradually regaining the appeal it had before the sanctioning-organizations split in the mid-1990s of the Indy Racing League and Championship Auto Racing Teams.
