The NASCAR schedule displays many changes, but one race that remains in the same place is the Coca-Cola 600.
The traditional Memorial Day weekend event at Charlotte Motor Speedway is the third race of the week for the NASCAR Cup Series. Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin entered Sunday’s competition for victory at Darlington. They are two of the four racers with wins from the first six races of the season. Joey Logano and Alex Bowman are the others.
Unlike the two Darlington races, there will be a qualifying session in Charlotte on Sunday afternoon, four hours before the longest event on the NASCAR calendar begins.

Joe Gibbs Racing teams must excel in Sunday’s race.
The team has won the last two races in Charlotte and three of the previous five, and placed four of its cars in the top 10 on Wednesday in Darlington.
Denny Hamlin has two team wins this season, while Erik Jones, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. all of them have several top-10 finishes.
Busch is in the middle of the sport’s main storyline towards Charlotte. Car Driver No. The 18th destroyed Chase Elliott on the last green flag lap on Wednesday, sparking discussion whether it was a deliberate move.
Busch told reporters that he spoke with Elliott to resolve this issue, per NASCAR.com, Chase Wilhelm.
“Yes, Chase and I talked and it went very well,” Busch said. “He is a class act. We have all seen it. The overall conversation is good.”
Elliott discussed the incident on Friday and understood that Busch made a mistake in their fight for second place, per Charlotte ObserverAlex Andrejev:
“I get that error happening and it’s part of life. I understand. He is not a person who makes many mistakes, so for me to be on the bad end of a mistake that rarely happens in the end is, in the end, unfortunate for me and my team.“
Even though it looks like the anger has cooled, it will be interesting to see how the two racers react if they struggle to position on the top of the grid on Sunday.
Elliott will try to end Hendrick Motorsports’ five-year drought on Victory Lane on Coca-Cola 600. Car driver No. 9 is top ranked racer in the points standings without a win, and teammate Alex Bowman has one of the strongest rides during Darlington’s second competition.
Jimmie Johnson cannot be counted because he has won the 600 mile race on four occasions and has been going well for most of the season. The 44-year-old, who will retire at the end of the season, is accepted top-12 is complete in four of the last five races and was ahead of Sunday at Darlington before he fell.
Kurt Busch is an old driver who has to be watched, because he has a trio of top-10s that finished this year and won the Coca-Cola 600 in 2010.
