Where: Michigan International Speedway's 2-mile oval with 18-degree banking, 2,242-foot backstretch and 3,600-foot frontstretch in Brooklyn, Mich.

When: 1 p.m. Sunday

Broadcast: Television FX; Radio Motor Racing Network

2000 winner: Tony Stewart

Morris News Service pick to win: Ricky Rudd

Others to watch: Johnny Benson, Rusty Wallace, Dale Jarrett, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and Bobby Labonte

Notes: The posted awards are $3,365,198. With his dominating victory at Dover last week, Jeff Gordon closed Dale Jarrett's lead in the Winston Cup Series point standings to just 50. The key ingredient to winning at the Michigan track is horsepower and fuel mileage. Most figure Ford has the edge in horsepower, and that might explain why Ford has won seven of the past 10 races at Michigan.
