|What is Coca Cola 600?|
The Coca-Cola 600 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points race that is held on Memorial Day weekend each year. The 600-mile auto race is hosted at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. The race begins in the early evening and runs until after dark, making the event very dramatic for participants and spectators.
One of the top five NASCAR races in the country, the Coca-Cola 600 draws a huge crowd each year and features car shows and monster truck bash in addition to the race. The event is held on the same day as the Indianapolis 500. When the Coca-Cola 600 first moved from a morning to an evening start time, some drivers would fly from Indianapolis to Concord to compete in both races the same day-for a whopping total of 1100 mile of racing in one day. Today, drivers choose between one race and the other.
