The following are facts and figures regarding the cars Pontiac teams will be running during this weekend's NASCAR Winston Cup Series event at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

No. 10
Valvoline Pontiac driver Johnny Benson heads into the Atlanta race weekend with the same chassis that carried him to third place finish at Texas and a win in the Winston Open. Benson, who won the pole here in his first attempt in 1996, owns a best career Atlanta finish of seventh, posted earlier this season.

No. 14
Conseco Pontiac driver Ron Hornaday enters this weekend looking for his second top 10 finish of the 2001 season. Hornaday is behind the wheel of the Grand Prix that he drove to a 38th place finish (engine failure) in Charlotte on Oct. 7.

No. 18
Interstate Batteries Pontiac driver Bobby Labonte has finished first (four times) or second (three times) in seven of the 11 Atlanta races he's run since joining Joe Gibbs Racing. He has a total of nine top-five finishes in those 11 races and he has led in all 11. He will look to add to those totals with the same car that ran 10th in Charlotte in October.

No. 20
Home Depot Grand Prix driver Tony Stewart will continue to try to track down Ricky Rudd in the Winston Cup point standings this weekend as he looks for his first-ever top 10 finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Stewart, who has eight top three finishes in 2001, is in command of the chassis that finished second in Charlotte on Oct. 7.

No. 36
M&M's Grand Prix driver Ken Schrader, who drove to an eighth place finish here this spring in his first outing with crew chief Newt Moore, is behind the wheel of the chassis that last appeared at North Carolina Speedway two weeks ago. Schrader finished 19th in that event.
