In 2000, Jerry Nadeau won the final race in NASCAR on ESPN's first stint and Kevin Harvick won the final race in NASCAR on ESPN's second stint! At the end of NASCAR on ESPN on the WatchESPN app, Nicole Briscoe (with daughter Finley beside her) delivered a heartwarming farewell to NASCAR on ESPN. What a way for NASCAR on ESPN to go out! Nowadays, Briscoe does SportsCenter, usually partnering with her good friend Lisa Kerney.

ESPN on NASCAR now is absolute shit. Don't even compare the two eras. They're nothing alike.

Jerry Nadeau, then a young, up-and-coming driver with his first win, as The Good Doc said. Almost won the race again the next year, should've won Sonoma driving for Petty in 2002, then a crash that ended his career. What a shame.

dang how epic this race was....DW's last, Earnhardt's last FULL race before you know what, last race on ESPN for 7 years.

Unreal, I was in 5th grade on a monday for this race, and im glad i was...i dont think I could have taken all this in if i saw this...DW's final race, Dale's final full season (and final race he finished), and the old espn's final race...and both my favorite drivers at the time got to battle it out, Ward and Jerry... the night before I predicted Nadeau would win and when my mom picked me up from school on Monday she had the biggest smile on her face saying "you were right!"...damn

The final race of 2000 at Homestead and what should have been Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin's final BGN races. Ricky Hendrick was running a team car to Jeff with GMAC as the sponsor and #14. For more interesting facts check out the race page at Racing Reference and read the comments section.
