Dale Earnhardt was a 3-time winner of the Coca-Cola 600 in his #3 Chevy. And it wasn't until 24 years later that a #3 Chevy would win NASCAR's longest race again.
Over the weekend Austin Dillon, the grandson of team owner Richard Childress, held off a fast-charging Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr. to win not only one of the sport's premier events, but his very first career Cup race.
It was an incredible record-breaking night for Martin Truex, Jr. at Sunday's Coca-Cola 600. He led all but eight of the race's 400 laps. He had the lead for 588 of 600 miles – the most ever in a single race in NASCAR history. And so after disappointments at Texas, Kansas and Dover earlier this year, Truex finally has his first win of the season and the fourth of his career.
Two of motor racing's premier events annually are run back to back on the same day and none were more exciting than the two this year. Juan Pablo Montoya won a three-way duel with Scott Dixon and teammate Will Power to take the lead with three laps left to win the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Kevin Harvick passed Kasey Kahne on a restart with 11 laps to go and held on to win Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway for his 19th career Sprint Cup victory and his second in the 600. Kahne led a race-high 161 laps but settled for second followed by Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano.
Racing’s biggest weekend of the year featured the world’s most famous race and Nascar’s longest race and the drivers taking the checkered flag in both races became three-time winners.
Racing’s biggest weekend of the year and two wild finishes.
Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 when he inherited the lead when rookie J.R. Hildebrand crashed on the final turn of the last lap. All Hildebrand had to do was get by a lapped car and head down the straightaway. He could...
It’s my favorite weekend of the racing season with two big races back to back on Sunday starting with the 95th running of the Indy 500 followed by NASCAR’s longest race of the year – the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte.
The first Indy 500 winner averaged just over 74 miles an hour and the race took more than 6 hours and 42 minutes to complete. The winner colle...
