NASCAR in Charlotte, live race updates, results, highlights from Coca-Cola 600

Kyle Larson should feel confident heading into the Cup Series race on Sunday.

Larson won back-to-back races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Coca-Cola 600 in May 2021 and Bank of America Roval 400 in October.

But a few other drivers should feel confident about their chances, too. Martin Truex Jr., still looking for his first win of the 2022 season, won the 600-mile race in 2016 and 2019. He and Kevin Harvick (2011, 2013) are the only active drivers to have won the Coca-Cola 600 multiple times.
