showers and thunderstorms as that low
enters the Appalachians. Latest models
indicate the front will stall in the
Carolinas over the weekend, with
several disturbances riding along it.
This will keep a 30% shower chance in
for both Saturday and Sunday. For the

2007-08 Season One of those teams is the Liberty
Men's basketball team that will now
lose 2 scholarships due to their low
Academic Progress Rate. The loss of
scholarships is in accordance with
N-C-A-A guidelines.


The low A-P-R is during the years
of 2-thousand and 3 to 2-thousand and

transfer away who were academically
ineligible.

OQ=News 7 Sports." <<48 teams gave the Lowes Motor
(END SOT) Speedway a workout over the past two


days. Not originally on the test
schedule, the session was added by
Nascar in an effort to help the teams
to get a better grip on the circuit's
new car. The winged wonder is most
certainly safer, yet has had plenty of
aerodynamic handling issues this
season, especially on tracks a mile and
a half in length.


CASEY MEARS/24th in Sprint Cup Points:


JEFF GORDON/13th in Sprint Cup Points:


TRAVIS WELLS: Perhaps no two drivers


have gotten a better handle on the new
car than Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch.
The two have combined to win 5 of the
first 10 races this season. Busch is
the points leader headed to Darlington,
but has ruffled plenty of feathers
along the way, both in the garage and
in the grandstands. And he's
completely comfortable with being the
sport's new bad boy.


KYLE BUSCH/Two Wins this Season:


After this weekend's dance with the
Lady in Black, the Cup drivers will
spend the rest of the month at Lowe's
Motor Speedway for the All star race
and the Coca-Cola 600. In Concord,
