Interview with Kurt Busch

The 2003 season was a mixed bag for Kurt Busch. He won four races, but struggled to gain acceptance on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series after his well-publicized run-in with Jimmy Spencer. Busch won three of the final five races in 2002 to finish third in the points standings, then he won two of the first 10 races in 2003 to become one of the favorites for the championship. Although he won two more races later in the season, he also had 10 finishes out of the top 30 to fall to 11th in the final rankings. He talked about making the best of a bad situation and what he hopes to accomplish in 2004.

Hard work might pay off for BAM

HAMPTON, Ga. - The woman sitting in the center seat on the flight from Greensboro, N.C., to Atlanta could afford better than a coach ticket. But for Beth Ann Morganthau, it's never been about the money.
