While Roanoke city council gets ready
to debate the future of the Mill
Mountain Star, it's clear what
Roanokers want to see happen.

The Star was turned solid white to
honor the victims of the Virginia Tech
shootings.

It was originally supposed to be that
way for 32 days but now the city says
it's indefinite.

council members are now open to the

idea of NOT turning the star back to
red, white, and blue.

They argue there's no telling how
long we'll be at war.

Our scientific survey shows more than
half of those surveyed in the Roanoke
Valley prefer the red, white, and blue.

OQ=News 7 Sports." <<52 teams gave the Lowe's Motor
(END SOT) Speedway a workout, trying to find any


edge they can. Hendrick cars have
found plenty this season accouting for
7 wins in 10 races. Jeff Gordon has 2
of those to go with 5 poles, while
Jimmie Johnson has visited victory lane
4 times, and Kyle Busch once.

While the trio has done its
talking on the track, there has been
plenty said about why the Hendrick
organization has been so stout.

DALE EARNHARDT, JR/12th in Nextel Cup
Points:

CARL EDWARDS/11th in Nextel Cup Points:

JEFF BURTON/15th in Nextel Cup Points:

Greg Biffle will try to derail the
Hendrick train as he goes after his 3rd
consecutive win at Darlington. But he
knows that an abundance of preparation,
talent, and luck is tough to beat.
