Today's NASCAR Number is 16.

16: The number of different winners in 24 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Texas Motor Speedway. In fact, 12 different drivers won the first 12 races at the 1.5-mile downforce track before Jeff Burton became the first repeat winner in the spring race of 2007. Burton, however, drove a Chevrolet to his second victory versus the Ford in which he won the inaugural race at TMS in 1997. Burton remains the only driver to put two different car makes in Victory Lane at Texas.
