Coca Cola 600 Tag

By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Defending Series champion, Kyle Busch came into the Coca-Cola 600 with just two tracks on the Sprint Cup Series circuit that he had left to check off of his win list. Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is one of those two tracks, continued to be a thorn in Busch’s side Sunday evening. Busch rolled off from the grid in the 16th position. Before the competition caution came out on lap 25, Busch would work his way to 11th. After a pit stop under this caution, Busch’sRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Roush Fenway Racing’s resurgence has been one of the most surprising stories of the 2016 season, but unfortunately while Trevor Bayne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have been succeeding week after week, the team’s veteran leader, Greg Biffle has been left behind recently. Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte though, Biffle had his best race of the season and the finishing position reflected it. The week started off great for Biffle as he recorded his best starting position of the year, with a sixth placeRead More

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service CONCORD, N.C. – Martin Truex Jr. crashed a Ford party on Thursday night, winning the pole for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway (6 p.m. ET on FOX). With his team making adjustments to the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota throughout the qualifying session, Truex saved his best lap for the round that counted, covering the 1.5-mile distance in 28.077 seconds (192.328 mph) to edge Team Penske Ford driver Joey Logano (192.007 mph) by .047 seconds for the top starting spot inRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor The greatest day in auto racing is upon us once more with three premier events (F1 at Monaco, the Indianapolis 500, and the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte) all taking place throughout the day on Sunday. With the 57th running of the Coca-Cola 600 set for Sunday afternoon into the night, we’ll take a step back to one of the most memorable races at Charlotte in recent memory, the 2005 Coca-Cola 600 and the amazing finish between Jimmie Johnson and Bobby Labonte. Ryan Newman and JeffRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Joey Logano looked like the runaway championship winner heading into Martinsville last fall, until a retaliatory crash at the hands of Matt Kenseth sent Logano’s chances for his first championship skidding into the wall. Many preseason polls had Logano as the favorite to hoist the Sprint Cup at the conclusion of the 2016 season. However, prior to the All-Star race this past weekend, things hadn’t been going according to plan for Logano and his No. 22 team. Through 12 races, it looked like Logano wasRead More
CONCORD, N.C. – Will the mystery winner of Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600 enter and sign in please? Hint: It’s the guy who does back flips every time he takes the checkered flag. But for the first 370 of 400 laps at Charlotte Motor Speedway, no one would have picked Carl Edwards or his No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota as the likely winner of the season’s 12th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin had spent the lion’s share of time at the headRead More
