Broadcast: Television TBS; Radio Performance Racing Network

Track: 112-mile quad-oval

1999 winner: Jeff Gordon

What it takes to win: Perhaps more than any other raceway on the circuit, Lowe's Motor Speedway requires the ability to conform to ever-changing conditions. The speedway is famous for creating a litany of challenges. One minute, the pavement is slippery; the next it's too abrasive. The best groove might be low for the first 100 miles, then against the outside wall for the next 100 miles. The driver who can identify those conditions and a car that's adjustable enough to mirror the changes has the best chance to win.

Morris News Service pick: Jeremy Mayfield

Other drivers to watch: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Burton, Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte, Dale Jarrett and Tony Stewart
