The Lady Panthers hosted the East Henderson Eagles Tuesday night. The crowd that filled the gym was decked out in purple for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and to participate in Tom Raby Night. Each Franklin team put on a good show for the crowd, with the women's varsity team giving the most impressive showing by demolishing the Eagles, 72-58.

The men's varsity team also added a win to their season record. Though they held the lead for most of the game, East Henderson was able to close the gap as the fourth quarter came to a close. A technical foul put the Eagles in a position to close the gap, but only one point resulted from the foul and Franklin was able to walk away with the win, 54-53.

No bonus for leading laps. No bonus points for leading the most laps. The one driver who finishes ahead of the other three takes home the trophy.

How the four drivers get to that final race with a chance to win the title also changes radically under a new format announced last Thursday by NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France during the final event of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Media Tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway.
