Event Preview

A pulsating weekend of motorsport action continues on Sunday, with the Coca-Cola 600 taking place just hours after the Monaco Grand Prix. This race is the third Crown Jewel contest of the season, and it is the longest race on the NASCAR schedule. It is one of the most challenging for drivers to navigate, as the track conditions change throughout the race.

A total distance of 600 miles is covered in this race, which is made up of 400 laps. All four stages consist of 100 laps apiece. Darrell Waltrip holds the record for the most race wins, having landed victory on five occasions. Meanwhile, Hendrick Motorsports and Chevrolet are the leading team and manufacturer, respectively.

Denny Hamlin landed a first race win in the Coca-Cola 600 last year, and he will be looking to build on a strong start to the season, having already landed victory at the Advent Health 400. However, Kyle Larson is the outstanding choice in the betting, as he looks to continue to build momentum following his victory in the All-Star Race last weekend.

Larson certainly looks a reliable contender, having previously landed victory in the race back in 2021. Chase Elliott also holds a solid chance this weekend, while Ross Chastain could be hard to ignore as he leads the way in the Drivers’ Standings. Christopher Bell has also been consistent throughout the season to this point.
