Sunday's race

Posted: Thursday, August 10, 2000

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
