This week's race: Mountain Dew Southern 500

Posted: Wednesday, September 04, 2002

WHERE: 1.366-mile, egg-shaped Darlington Raceway in Darlington, S.C.

WHEN: Television coverage starts at 12:30 p.m.; race starts at 1

BROADCAST: Television TNT; Radio Motor Racing Network

DISTANCE: 367 laps

LAST YEAR'S WINNER: Ward Burton

NOTES: The most-common fear this week will be tire wear. The newer, harder tires provided by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. start losing their grip after just 10 laps. Most drivers will need new tires long before they run out of gas. Midway into a run, most cars will be up against the outside wall because there's no traction on the bottom groove.
