Earnhardt is pushing Busch's "Great Tracks" can series, in which NASCAR venues are featured on 12- and 16-oz. Busch and Busch Light cans. Busch is also running a point-of- purchase promotion during this year's NASCAR season allowing fans to collect "Busch Clash" posters and official NASCAR pocket schedules. NASCAR's season kicks off next Sunday with the "Busch Clash" on CBS (Oscar Walters, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 2/5). TOUGH AS NAILS: Phillies OF Len Dykstra's off-the field business ventures are profiled in this morning's PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.

Lenny Dykstra's Grand Slam Liquid Car Wax and Wash Kit will be in stores this spring. Dykstra's car-products venture, Grand Slam Ltd., is also working on a tire dressing product and deals with national retailers to carry their products (Joe Santoliquito, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 2/5).
