GRAPHIC=LAS VEGAS This has turned out to be a tough


week of testing for the Nextel Cup
series drivers out in Las Vegas.

The one and half mile track has
been repaved and reconfigured with the
banking being increased from 12 to 20
degrees.

Apparently the changes are
conducive to not only speed, but also
accidents.

No less than six drivers hit the
wall running test laps and couple
wrecked multiple times.

The speeds with the new
configuration are definitely up from
last year. The top testing speed this
week was nearly 189 miles an hour.

GRAPHIC=SUPER BOWL The Colts remain 7 point


favorites for this coming Sunday's
Super Bowl in Miami.

Of course, even if you're not a
Indianapolis fan - you're liekly
pulling for Peyton Manning.

It has talen the Colts'
quarterback 9 years to finally make it
to the Super Bowl - a dry spell that
prompted a Japanese reporter to ask him
today how it felt to finally have
broken the Manning family curse.
