without the feeding tube that had kept
her alive her for years.

This was the final legal appeal by
Schiavo's parents, to have her feeding
tube re-connected.

The severely brain-damaged woman's
father says if she doesn't get water,
his daughter will die soon.

Schiavo suffered brain damage in
1990 when her heart stopped briefly
from a chemical imbalance believed to
have been brought on by an eating
disorder.

Her husband Michael said she didn't
want to be kept alive by artificial
means. Her parents disagreed. They've
been fighting in the courts ever since.

*CG locator Concord, NC
January Knaus, the crew chief for Jimmie :00 Johnson had been suspended for 2 races
and fined 35 grand, and JJ was docked
25 points, after the pair was accused
of cheating in Atlanta.

Gustafson, Kyle Busch's crew
chief, received the same penalty with a
fine of 25 thousand dollars.

Both will now be in Bristol next
weekend, but have been placed on 90
days probation.

Rick Hendrick maintains that
neither cheated and that the cars
failed inspection because of mechanical
issues that developed over the course
of the 400 mile race.
