Kevin Harvick Comes Up Victorious In Charlotte
The Coca-Cola 600 is another big event on the Sprint Cup circuit, mainly due to the fact the race is so long. In fact, the race tonight spanned over five hours.
Two red flag periods, 11 cautions, tons of pit strategies, all of what goes into an exciting night of racing was on display tonight in North Carolina.
The annual Memorial Day celebration showcased some of the circuit’s greats falling early and falling fast. The biggest names, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, and Jimmie Johnson were all caught up in some kind of wreck, leaving few veterans and many fresher faces.
Kasey Kahne ran well all night, but did have trouble on restarts, which would eventually be his demise on the restart with 10 laps to go. Kurt Busch overcame battery troubles to end up third, Denny Hamlin, who’s come back from a bad back injury finished fourth, and Joey Logano rounded out the top five with a strong effort.
The “Monster Mile” in Dover, Delaware is the next slated race, and the last on FOX this season…let’s hope another camera cable doesn’t snap next weekend…
