while waiting for a more permanent

One person remains in stable

And upward bound students who

The students were moved into

arguably the best rookie in Nextel Cup,
finishing the season with 2 wins, but
he wound up 20th in points, with as
many bad results as good. Today, the
21 year old took a serious step towards
making the Chase at New Hampshire.

TNT Pole sitter Ryan Newman is great :00 in qualifying, but doesn't do well in
crowds. Newman moved up the racetrack,

spinning the leader, Tony Stewart at
lap 91 to bring out the yellow.

But just seven laps later,
Newman was on the receiving end of a
Michael Waltrip shove as the 12 car
ended up in the fence.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s day came
to a premature end when the 8 blew an
engine at lap 135.

Waltrip and Robby Gordon
tangled under caution with 3 laps to go
setting up a green,white, checkers
finish.

Kyle Busch got away on the
final restart and beat Carl Edwards to
the checkered flag,as Elliott Sadler
and Denny Hamlin ran out of fuel while
running in the top five. It's Busch's
first win of the season, and third of
his career moving him to 4th in the
points.

the finish in the foothills of the

Verbrugghe broke his leg and sustained
a laceration on his left arm.

Frenchman Pierrick Fedrigo won
the stage. Spain's Oscar Pereiro is

still the overall leader.
