Morgan-McClure Motorsports heads to The Peach State hoping to create its own version of "March Madness" in Sunday's Cracker Barrel 500. Post-season NCAA basketball action won't be the only game in town this weekend. The NASCAR Winston Cup Series will make its fourth stop of the series at Atlanta Motor Speedway, a 1.54-mile track that hosts some of the fastest side-by-side racing of the season.

Robby Gordon, driver of the No. 4 KODAK MAX Film Monte Carlo, has only three Winston Cup starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and he started from the pole there in 1997. Gordon, a 32-year-old California native, will make his 49th career start in NASCAR's premiere series Sunday. Gordon and crew won't use a full-court press, but it'll be full-speed ahead for the Abingdon, Va.-based team.

Larry McClure, owner KODAK MAX Film Monte Carlo, quotes

"We will go to Atlanta in hopes of a good qualifying run and a decent finish. We need to gain points. That is of importance. I do not like running in the back. This team is working hard to get the No.4 back to the front of the pack."
