Pennzoil 400

Posted: Thursday, November 09, 2000

Where: Homestead-Miami Speedway

When: 12:30 p.m. Sunday

Broadcast: TelevisionNBC-Ch. 26; RadioMotor Racing Network

Track: 112-mile oval

Last year's winner: Tony Stewart

What it takes to win: The track's configuration is identical to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The only difference is, the speedway is a mile shorter. But like Indy, two longer straightaways, two short-shoots and four 90-degree, flat-banked corners don't add up to a competitive raceway. Passing is difficult because every car will try to find a place in traffic along the inside groove. Drivers who excel on road courses should run well at Homestead because it takes a road course set up to get off the corners.

Morris News Service pick: Jeff Burton

Other drivers to watch: Tony, Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte, Ricky Rudd and Rusty Wallace
