NASCAR is back in action this Sunday for one of its crown jewel events and its longest race of the season — the Coke 600.
Denny Hamlin is defending winner of the event, which wasn’t lacking in action. After a four-wide battle for the win ended in a crash coming to the white flag, Hamlin held of then-teammate Kyle Busch to win the race.
This week, Hendrick Motorsports revealed that Alex Bowman will be back behind the wheel of the No. 48 car at Charlotte.
Trackhouse Racing also announced its newest Project 91 driver. Three-time Australian Supercars champion Shane van Gisbergen will pilot the No. 91 Chevrolet at the Chicago Street Course race.
Despite a late-race crash while battling for the Darlington win, Ross Chastain remains in control of the championship standings, 27 points ahead of Christopher Bell.
