Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte: Start time, foercast and more

Leave a comment

After three days off, NASCAR will be back in action with one of its crown jewels, the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Martin Truex Jr. has won this event two of the past four years, including last year.

“The 600 is such a big race and it’s so special to be able to go there and honor the fallen soldiers,” Truex said. “Not only the names on the cars, but to get to meet the families and really kind of understand more about their story or the kind of person that they were, that’s always been something that I think all of us look forward to. I certainly did. That’s something that’s going to be missed, but what won’t be missed is just what the weekend means, what the holiday means, and the fact that we all know what we’re racing for, who we’re racing for.”
