The Intensity of 600 Miles at 200 MPH

Charlotte Motor Speedway is the track for Sprint this weekend. The Coca-Cola 600 is Sunday night under the lights. It’s the longest race in the series at 600 miles. It takes a lot of physical and mental conditioning to handle a car for that long under normal driving conditions, imagine what it must be like at close to 200 mph.

Denny Hamlin captured the pole with a qualifying run that covered the 1.5-mile distance in 27.604 seconds (195.624 mph). That knocked Kurt Busch (195.221 mph) off the provisional pole. Matt Kenseth (195.094 mph) qualified third, followed by Mark Martin (194.595 mph) and Clint Bowyer (194.503 mph), as Toyota drivers claimed four of the top five spots.

The race is at 6PM ET on Fox. Don’t forget the Indianapolis 500 earlier that day.
