CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Steve Phelps typically spends all his time behind-the-scenes with NASCAR strategizing with industry leaders. But for one week at Daytona, Phelps learned every aspect of the business - working on a pit crew, painting the walls on the speedway and selling concessions - as part of CBS' ``Undercover Boss'' series. Phelps is the first executive from a major professional sport to take a turn on the reality program. By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer.

SEOUL, South Korea - The five-way fight for the Formula One drivers' championship moves to unfamiliar territory this weekend on a barely finished circuit in South Korea. Australia's Mark Webber goes into the third-to-last race of the season with a 14-point lead on Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso. McLaren's Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton remain in contention but need strong results this weekend to increase pressure on the leaders. Before they can start thinking about Sunday's race, all the drivers will be preoccupied with quickly learning the intricacies of the Yeongam circuit. By Auto Racing Writer Chris Lines. SENT
