Jeff Burton races to victory in the Checker Auto Parts 400K at Phoenix International Raceway

Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jarrett, Darrell Waltrip and Bill Elliott.



Jeremy Mayfield finished second and Bobby Hamilton finished last, with Stacy Compton, Steve Grissom, Robby Gordon,
Dave Marcis and Hut Stricklin failing to qualify.

Surprisingly, there were 6 present day Sprint Cup drivers in the field on that day in 2000 including, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenneth, Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman. Of that group, only Newman has yet to win a Championship.
