No. 10
Valvoline Grand Prix driver Johnny Benson takes a shot at the No Bull 5 $1 million bonus this weekend for the first time behind the wheel of the chassis he finished seventh with in Atlanta.

No. 14
Rookie Ron Hornaday returns to Lowe's Motor Speedway this weekend with the same car that he ran in last week's edition of The Winston Open. Hornaday, who has one top 10 finish in 2001, finished 14th in the Open and eighth in the No Bull Sprint.

No. 18
Defending Winston Cup champion Bobby Labonte is hoping to return to his old form this weekend in Charlotte with a brand new chassis. Labonte drove to a fourth place finish in The Winston last Saturday.

No. 20
During the past four points races, Tony Stewart has scored more points than anyone in the Winston Cup Series. That stretch includes a fourth place finish at California Speedway, which Stewart earned with this chassis.

No. 27
Kenny Wallace comes into the 12th race of the 2001 Winston Cup schedule with a new sponsor and a new lease on the season. Wallace, whose best finish this season is a 25th (twice), is running the car that carried him to one of those two season-best finishes at Texas.

No. 36
Pedigree Pontiac driver Ken Schrader brought this brand new chassis to The Winston Open last week and is hoping for good things out of it again this week in the Coca-Cola 600. Schrader is hoping to build on the ninth place finish he posted in the series' last points race at Richmond three weeks ago.
