Life Center of Galax's proposed methadone clinic in Roanoke County has been a topic of debate among county leaders and residents. Last month the county ruled that the clinic did not comply with its zoning ordinance. The center now has until the end of next week to appeal. Today Jennifer Wishon spoke with members of a citizen task force that supports the company, but hopes to sway it in a different direction.

Brian Vickers will make his debut in Rick Hendrick's number 25 tomorrow. Today was a tough one though for the youngster, as he lost the points lead thanks to this spin. Vickers dropped all the way to 5th in the title hunt.
It was also a long afternoon for Chad Blount who gets the love tap from Mike Wallace and dives into the wall. He finished 37th.
In the end, Greg Biffle overcame a flat tire, an empty gas tank, and a pit road speeding violation to post the win. David Green retook the points lead with an 8th place finish.
