What: Global Crossing at the Glen
Time: 12:30 p.m. Sunday
Broadcast: Television ESPN; Radio Motor Racing Network
Where: Watkins Glen International (Watkins Glen, N.Y.)
Track: 2.45-mile, 11-turn road course
1999 winner: Jeff Gordon
What it takes to win: Beat Jeff Gordon. Counting the road course at Sonoma, Calif., Gordon has won the past six series road-course races. The key to getting around Watkins Glen is having a car that can withstand heavy braking, and left and right turns that leave the rear wheels on the brink of sending the car into a spin. Much of Gordon's success can be attributed to his ability to find a rhythm that doesn't overwork the car.
Morris News Service pick: Rusty Wallace
Others to watch: Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin, Tony Stewart, Ricky Rudd, Kyle Petty
