Nascar's rookie of the year front runner Tony Stewart will be attempting a rare racing double tomorrow as he tries to not only win at Charlotte but also at Indianapolis.
Mike Stevens says the former Indy Racing league champ plans to become the second man ever to compete in both the Indy 500 and the Coke 600 in the same busy day.

The cat, named Mouser, ironically was chasing a mouse when he found himself stuck in a wall.
Rescuers had to use a jackhammer and dishwashing soap to get a hold of the cat and pull him to safety.
Just when Mouser thought he was in the clear, rescuers brought out the garden hose to rinse off all of the soap. (------------) [Super=X5043 (clears FX)]
