It's Memorial Day weekend, which means it's time for the Coca-Cola 600.

NASCAR hits Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Cup Series' longest race, which tests speed, stamina and a driver's mental focus across hours of nighttime racing.

Only six active drivers — Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Austin Dillon, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski — have triumphed at this NASCAR crown jewel with Harvick and Truex each winning twice.

Truex is the only NASCAR driver with three wins in 2021, while Alex Bowman is the only other driver to win more than once through 14 races. Harvick, who led the series with nine wins in 2020, has yet to reach victory lane this season.
