pepsi 400

Posted: Thursday, July 05, 2001

Where: Daytona International Speedway's 212-mile tri-oval with 31-degree banking in the corners, a 3,400-foot backstretch and a 3,800-foot front stretch located at Daytona Beach, Fla.

When: 8 p.m. Saturday

Broadcast: Television NBC; Radio Motor Racing Network

2000 winner: Jeff Burton

Morris News Service pick to win: Rusty Wallace

Others to watch: Jimmy Spencer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Bobby Labonte, Ricky Rudd, Tony Stewart and Dale Jarrett

Notes: A rules package created solely for Daytona and its sister track at Talladega, Ala., that includes changes to the engine and body will create large packs of two-wide traffic. In turn, that creates the possibility of a multi-car accident like the 19-car pileup during the 500 ... Daytona is one of the hardest tracks to master. A bump over the tunnel in the fourth turn makes the car bounce
