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

No. 10
Johnny Benson comes to Homestead wheeling the same chassis that ran second at Kansas Speedway before an engine failure dropped him from competition. This piece also posted a third place finish in the Brickyard 400 and a fifth at Pocono the week before that.

No. 14
Rookie Ron Hornaday is looking for his second top 10 finish of the 2001 season this weekend at Homestead and is using the same chassis he drove to a 34th place finish at Indianapolis.

No. 18
Interstate Batteries Pontiac driver Bobby Labonte used this chassis to drive to a fourth place finish and clinch the 2000 NASCAR Winston Cup title in this race last November. Labonte, who is looking for his eighth top five finish of the season, owns an average finish of 3.0 here at Homestead.

No. 20
Home Depot Grand Prix driver Tony Stewart has led 236 laps on his way to a pair of Homestead victories over the past two seasons. Stewart, who is just 75 points behind Ricky Rudd for second place in the point standings, is running the chassis that won here a year ago. This Grand Prix has already earned a seventh and a third this season in two outings at Pocono Raceway.

No. 36
M&M's Pontiac driver Ken Schrader drove this chassis to an eighth place finish at Atlanta back in March and then followed that up with a 14th place effort in its last outing at Michigan. Schrader, who is currently 18th in the Winston Cup standings, tested here Oct. 16-17 in preparation for this weekend's 400-miler.
