Officials say a French neo-Nazi fired in the direction of President Jacques Chirac as his car passed by. People in the crowd shouted as the man pulled his rifle out of a guitar case but police were able to contain the gunman and no one was injured. French authorities do not think the shooting was part of a plot because of the type of gun used. Police say the 25- year- old suspect is known to belong to "hooligan movements." President Chirac was leading a parade commemorating France's 1789 revolution.

Elliott Sadler brought out one of seven caution flags at lap 192 with the spin in traffic. Sadler finished 21st in the Wood Brothers entry.
Kevin Harvick would take a similar ride in the 29 machine. Steve Grissom, Hut Stricklin and Jimmy Spencer back up behind Harvick and all three of those cars sustain heavy damage.
But Harvick recovered and after a late caution, he chose not to pit and it paid off. Last year's race winner held off Jeff Gordon over the final laps and pulled off the repeat in the Tropicana 400. Richard Childress sweeps the Busch and Cup events this weekend.

Roanoke's Dicky Linkous brought home the Crown Royal Open trophy yesterday, after leading the four day event from wire to wire. Ashley Plantation's Chip Sullivan finished 3rd, five shots back.

To the Tradition Club at New Kent we go, where Sullivan started the day four shots back of Linkous. He tried to make a late run. Here at the par 5 15th, Chip just slides the eagle effort by the cup. He would tap in for birdie to get to 5-under par.
Then at 18, Sullivan saves par with the good roll. Sullivan fired a final round 70, and earned just under 7 grand for his efforts.
Linkous carded a 69 in the final round to finish at 10-under for the tournament. He takes the Crown Royal title and 15 thousand dollars.

For Jonathan Schuerholz, you might say baseball is in the genes. The Danville Braves infielder has a pretty famous father, but as intern reporter Rebekkah Warburton tells us, the younger Schuerholz isn't content to ride his dad's coattails.

((Getting hit by the occasional pitch is not nearly as painful as dealing with many people's assumption that the only reason Jonathan Scheurholz will climb the professional baseball ladder is because his father, John, is the general manager for the Atlanta Braves. But he's learned to deal with it at an early age. ((Jonathan Schuerholz)) As he was signed on by the Braves in the tenth round of the draft this Spring, Schuerholz's hustle both offensively and defensively have helped his team win five of their last seven games. And while he grew up in an environment engrossed with baseball, Jonathon still feels no pressure from his news worthy father to participate in this sport. ((Jonathan Schuerholz)) ((Ralph Henriquez))
On the other end of the story, the Braves' general manager also deals with the habitual inquiries regarding his son's decision to take on the sport and routinely shows his excitement and support. Now, what does his mother, Karen, think about another family member pursuing a career in baseball?" ((Jonathan Shuerholz))
Schuerholz and teammates will be taking on the Twins in a three game series here in Danville beginning July 10th. In Danville, Bekkah Warburton, News 7 Sports. ))
