At '94 Brickyard, first race was just to get in (NASCAR.com)

Because the race just to get into that inaugural NASCAR event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway two decades ago was every bit as frenzied as the race to win it. Everybody who could scrounge up a race car, it seemed, wanted to be a part of it. With 83 teams trying to wedge their way into that first Brickyard 400, just making the race was a victory. "There were cars everywhere," remembered Bobby Labonte, who would go on to finish 16th.

Top 10 moments at the Brickyard (NASCAR.com)

Indeed, revered old Indianapolis Motor Speedway seized a spot in NASCAR's consciousness from the very beginning, and even now, two decades later, still hasn't let go.

For all those factors, winning at Indy in NASCAR's premier division remains a career-defining moment, and that will never change. We've certainly witnessed that in how these Brickyard moments created over the last 20 years continue to resonate, even long after the seasons in which they unfolded have passed.

Roush tests at Michigan after hitting 'low point' (NASCAR.com)

In this year's June visit to Michigan International Speedway, the three-team organization failed to put a driver in the top-10 for the first time since the 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. Biffle finished 20th in the Quicken Loans 400, Edwards was 22nd and Stenhouse 27th. Instead, he said, the results showed the team two things: that there are areas where Roush Fenway is still behind, and that "you can't rely on past performance." He is sixth in points and could all but lock up a spot in this year's Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup with a solid finish this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The white flag was out as Dale Earnhardt Jr. led the field across the start/finish line at Las Vegas Motor Speedway earlier this year. Four months later, teammate Jeff Gordon ran out of fuel under caution at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as the field prepared for a green-white-checkered finish. "That (fuel) pickup is in the right side (of the fuel cell) ? With reams of information at their fingertips, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams have a pretty good idea of just how much fuel their cars have in the tank at any time, as well as the car's fuel mileage during each race.
