saturday night's alright for winning

kyle busch won barely hanging on to the lead with mark martin TRYING to get by. kyle and mark improved their chances with getting into the chase with their finishes. tony stewart finished 33rd with problems with the radio, batteries and other. he is in the chase along with jimmie johnson (finished 9th) and jeff gordon. quite the race.

an anniversary that began the 500 club

80 years ago today, george herman "babe" ruth hit his 500th homer to be the first player to hit 500. he hit it off of cleveland indians pitcher willis hudlin. there are now 25 players that have hit 00 or more homers, but babe ruth will always be the first.
