NASCAR gets back to its regular schedule after last week’s All-Star Race, staying in Concord, NC for the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday afternoon. Charlotte Motor Speedway is a 1.5-mile, intermediate track completed in 1959 in a quad-oval shape. Every turn has the same 24° banking and straightaways are nearly flat with 5° banking. The frontstretch measures 1,980 feet (.375 miles) while the backstretch is just 1,500 feet (.284 miles). In the past 10 regular-season races at this track, there have been 10 different winners. Kevin Harvick won last year’s Coca-Cola 600 and Matt Kenseth won the Bank of America 500 last October at Charlotte Motor Speedway.


Drivers to Watch

Kasey Kahne (10/1) - He is in a great position to win this race on Sunday. Kahne has reeled off a current streak of five straight top-8 finishes, and this is a track he has thrived on in his career. Not only has he won three times in Charlotte (2006 twice and 2008), but he’s posted three other top-5’s, finishing fourth here in last October’s Bank of America 500.

Jimmie Johnson (5/1) - Johnson is the hottest driver on the circuit right now, with wins in back-to-back weeks (Darlington and All-Star Race) and an average finish of 5.4 in the nine regular-season races he has finished this season. The No. 48 car has also thrived in Charlotte with six career wins and 10 top-5’s at this track

Brad Keselowski (18/1) - Keselowski already has two victories and five top-10’s this season, so odds are he’ll be at the front of the pack on Sunday too. He’s yet to finish better than 12th in his five career starts in Charlotte, but he did win the pole in last year’s Coca-Cola 600, so he’s certainly capable of having a big weekend.

Jamie McMurray (100/1) - These odds are outrageously favorable for a driver that has enjoyed great success on this track. In addition to two career victories at Charlotte (2002 and 2010), McMurray also finished second in the 2010 Coca-Cola 600. And before his disappointing 34th-place finish in Darlington, McMurray had placed 14th, 14th, 14th and 11th in his previous four races this season.

Kevin Harvick (12/1) - The defending champion of the Coca-Cola 600 is still looking for his first win of the season, but he has raced well enough to place eighth in the current standings. Since his terrible 41st-place finish in 2009 at Charlotte, he’s steadily improved with finishes of 18th, 8th, 11th, 6th before his win last year.
