Racing facts



PENNSYLVANIA 500

WHAT: Pennsylvania 500 (Race 20 of 36).

WHO: NASCAR Winston Cup Series.

WHERE: 2.5-mile, triangle-shaped Pocono Raceway at Long Pond, Pa.

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

BROADCAST: Television - TNT; Radio - Motor Racing Network.

DISTANCE: 200 laps.

LAST YEAR'S WINNER: Bobby Labonte.

NOTES: The layout of three distinctly different turns and three long straightaways puts a severe strain on the car. Not only will engines surpass the 9,000 rpm range, transmissions and rear end gears will be pushed to their limits ... The first turn is a slightly-banked hairpin; the second has a 90-degree turn; and the third is a flat, sweeper that sets up the mile-long drag race down the six-lane-wide front straightaway.
