Pepsi 400

Posted: Thursday, August 17, 2000

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
