This is going to be a heavy News day. Bear with me. I can't remember a day since I started that there has been so much important news.

YET ANOTHER new superspeedway may be on the drawing boards. According to NASCAR sources, the Mattioli family, which owns Pocono, would like to build another three-corner track somewhere.

FELIX SABATES is telling his crew privately he may have a new driver in the wings for 1998 for one of his three cars. Speculation is that might be Sterling Marlin.

RICK HENDRICK'S health is improving, according to Jimmy Johnson, manager of Hendrick Motorsports. ''Rick's blood count, which went up to 125,000, is now down to 4,000, which is normal. His immature white cell count, which was as high as 40 percent, was down to one percent Friday, and yesterday it was zero. ''The problem is the interferon has weakened him so much he had to be taken off it for a few days; he was very, very, very weak. But he goes back on it Friday.'' NASCAR'S Bill France has told Bruton Smith that he won't be getting a second Winston Cup date at Texas Motor Speedway in 1998, according to NASCAR sources.
