At 600 miles, this is one of the longest races on the Sprint Cup schedule, and one of the most grueling stock car races around. The race itself has been held since 1960. From 1960-1985, then, the race was called the World 600.

Located in the heart of NASCAR country, fans flock to Lowes Motor Speedway each Memorial Day weekend tobet on their favorite drivers.

The race is special, as well as the day, during the afternoon, racing fans have their eyes glued to the Indianapolis 500, and at night, they head to Charlotte Motor Speedway.

However, looking over the list of past winners is like viewing a “who’s who” in NASCAR, including Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt.

2011 Coca Cola 600 Results

Kevin Harvick took his No. 29 Budweiser/Armed Forces Chevrolet to victory lane in a wild finish of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It was the third win of the season for the Richard Childress Racing driver and propelled him to second in the standings, just 36 markers out of the top spot. It is the 17th win of his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career.

Harvick started 28th in the 43-car field for the scheduled 400-lap/600-mile race. In the early laps, his Gil Martin-led team overcame handling issues to steadily move Harvick up in the running order. As is usually the case in the season’s longest race, the drama built as the laps ran down and fuel mileage came to the surface as potentially being an influence in the finish. When the caution flag flew for the final time on lap 397 forcing the race into an overtime green-white-checkered scenario, Harvick was in ninth place. But the fuel situation forced some of the leaders down pit road while others, including race-long front-runner Dale Earnhardt, Jr., No. 88 National Guard/AMP Energy Chevrolet, stayed out to make a charge for the victory.
