NASCAR at Charlotte: Date, time, lineup, TV schedule, live stream for Coca-Cola 600
- NASCAR is sticking around Charlotte another week for one of the biggest racing weekends of the year.
NASCAR will stick around in Charlotte this week for one of the most fun weekends of the racing year.
With the Xfinity Series race on Saturday, the Indy 500 on Sunday morning and the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night, race fans will be treated to non-stop action over a 24-hour period.
The Coca-Cola 600, NASCAR's longest running race, will feature classic intermediate drivers (Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick) matching up with youngsters who have had recent success (Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson). Meanwhile, a veteran of the track (Jimmie Johnson) will try to get back into the winner's circle at one of his favorite venues.
Charlotte Motor Speedway presents a unique challenge with the 6 p.m. ET start as the race will change quite a bit over 400 laps. The beginning will feature a sun-covered track prone to slipping and sliding, while the closing laps will calm things down a bit under the lights.
It will be the end of a long day, but one full of action as we are likely to see great competition throughout one of NASCAR's marquee events.
What time does the Coca-Cola 600 start?
The Coca-Cola 600 will take place Sunday, May 26. Live coverage begins on Fox at 6 p.m. ET.
What channel is the Coca-Cola 600 on?
The Coca-Cola 600 will be broadcast nationally on Fox. The race can also be live-streamed on the Fox Sports Go App or by subscribing to fuboTV, which offers a seven-day free trial .
