Where: Michigan Speedway (Brooklyn, Mich.)
When: 1 p.m. Sunday
Broadcast: Television ESPN; Radio Motor Racing Network
Track: 2-mile, D-shaped oval
1999 winner: Bobby Labonte
What it takes to win: Michigan generally is regarded by the drivers as the easiest track to drive because it's so wide and so smooth. Horsepower and fuel mileage are the keys. The fastest car often loses because it has to make an extra stop for gas. It's also a favorite raceway because Chevrolet, Ford and Pontiac have their worldwide headquarters less than an hour away.
Morris News Service pick: Jeremy Mayfield
Other drivers to watch: Bobby Labonte, Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jarrett, Johnny Benson and Tony Stewart
