Jon Fogarty (left) and Nilton Rossoni are ready to fight it out for the 2000 Barber Dodge Pro Series championship in Sunday's season finale, the Racing for Kids Grand Prix at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The 40-minute race will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday, with no admission charge. Rossoni not only has the edge on reach, he enters the finale with a seven point lead. Better than a belt, the championship awards the $300,000 career enhancement award. The public is invited to attend the finale for free from the infield Pit Boxes, after signing a waiver at the Speedway's back tunnel entrance, located off Palm Drive (344th Ave.)

The event opens on Friday with a pair of practice sessions at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday calls for qualifying session at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

The 40-minute race takes the green flag at 11 a.m. Spectators will be admitted both days for free after signing a waiver at the Speedway's back tunnel entrance, located off Palm Drive (344th Ave.), and are invited to watch the race from the Pit Boxes.

The Speedway ticket office will also be open Saturday from 10 a.m. -- 3 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. -- 4 p.m., with good seats still available for the Nov. 10-12 Pennzoil 400 weekend, the return of the NASCAR Winston Cup and Busch Series. Tickets may also be purchased by calling (305) 230-RACE, by visiting the official web site, www.homesteadmiamispeedway.com, or at any Ticketmaster location.
