GRAPHIC=NEXTEL The Nextel Cup drivers will


qualify in Talladega tomorrow morning

and race on Sunday.

Today - racing sanctioning body
took Tony Stewart to the wood shed for
the comments he made earlier this week
- in which he in effect said NASCAR is
fake like rasslin.

*CG locator Martinsville
April Stewart says after a 6am meeting
today in Talladega with a group what he
would only describe as his peers - he
realizes he should not have accused
NASCAR of throwing phantom caution
flags to shape the outcome of a race.

Stewart says he knows he said
some stupid stuff that likely hurt the
sport.

He has appologized and was fined
$10 thousand bucks for skipping
Sunday's mandatory postrace interview
session..

However, several drivers
incliding Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle
said today Stewart was only saying what
we all think about a lot.

Jean is coming back in a moment.
Take care everybody.

But the store isn't closing for

The new owners plan to upgrade
the kitchen and menu.

They also plan to expand the old
iron company offices next door for
upscale dining and possibly a wine

cellar.

As for Granny Averill...she has
no plans for now.
