NASCAR Drivers in the Long Track – Charlotte
This weekend the NASCAR drivers head into Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600, the longest race in the Sprint Cup Series.
And, Kurt Busch will really have the miles behind him as he will also run in the Indianapolis 500 earlier in the day. 1,100 miles! If he finishes both races, he will become only the 4th to do it. He says he is glad the Indy part is first, "... because that is where I am the most inexperienced. That's when I'll be at my best."
You can hear both races' action right here on 92.5 WBKR and wbkr.com.
Nine different drivers have won the first eleven races. So, Monday's race is of immense importance.
Jamie McMurray says the Charlotte track is special. In 2010, he won his first race there.
