FX When you race at Darlington you :00 get a stripe on your car and put on the
wall - because it is tough and a few
folks found that out the hard way
tonight.

The caution flag was flying on
the very first lap of the Diamond Hill
Plywood 200.

Matt Kenseth would avoid that

trouble and pass Kenny Wallace for the
lead.

Kenseth would hang on to win it.

Stacy Compton was 31st and Jon

Knights vs. Patriots The new Patrick Henry is a work :00 in progress - the lacrosse team has
already arrived.

Tyler Baxter makes the unselfish
pass to Thomas Dabay - who splits the
pipes for the goal to give the Patriots
a five to nothing lead.

Later in the second half the
Patriots would come in from the back
and throw down from the front as Ryan

Parker makes it a 6-to-nothing game.

Cave Spring would get one of
those back on a fluke play. *CG final Cave Spring The pass just in front of the crease 2 is deflected and it bounces in to cut Patrick Henry the lead to 6-to-1.

tonight 13 to 2.

The county recently bought FOUR
hybrid cars.

They're being used by the real

departments.

County officials say they're
already saving money on fuel.

The cars get 40 miles per gallon,
versus 25 in the older cars.

Officials also say the vehicles
will help cut environmental costs in
the long run.

They plan to add more hybrids to
the county's fleet this summer.

On this day in 1960, the Norfolk
& Western Railway ran its last
steam-powered freight train.

Steam engines had plenty of
muscle, but the new diesel-electric
locomotives were cheaper to operate and
maintain.

The final steam run ended at
Williamson, West Virginia.

The N&W was the last main-line
railway in the nation to pull its
trains with steam. (END VO) (END VO)
