What: Tropicana 400
Where: 112-mile D-shaped Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill.
When: Television coverage starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, race starts at 2:30
Broadcast: TelevisionNBC-Ch. 26; RadioMotor Racing Network
Distance: 267 laps.
2001 winner: Kevin Harvick
Notes: The raceway is about 40 minutes from downtown Chicago, and it's an identical replica of the speedway built at Kansas City ... The new pavement a year ago made it difficult to pass. Drivers are hoping the harsh winter, added with another year of seasoning, will make the conditions more conducive for passing.
