Who are the active drivers who have won in Charlotte?

Nine of the 37 Sunday race drivers have won in Charlotte: Kyle Bosch, Kurt Bosch, Harvick, Truex, Kiselovsky, Larson, Elliott, Lugano and Dillon.

Harvick and Truex drive the active drivers in Charlotte and each won three. Keselowski is the only other active driver to have multiple wins for Charlotte (2). Larson is the defending champion of the Coca-Cola 600, and claimed his first win in Charlotte last May.

Charlotte is similar to most of the other 1.5-mile ovals, but with the Coke 600 being a cresting event, a certain group of elite drivers often rise to the top.

Riddick, still looking for his first win of his career, has a career best average finish in Charlotte – 10.3 – in just three starts. Among the top seven middle players in the final position behind Riddick are six former champions (plus Hamlin): Elliott (11.9 in 10 starts), Hamlin (12.3 in 30 starts), Lugano (12.4 in 23 starts), Kiselowski (13.5 in 22 starts). ), Truex (14.1 in 30 starts), Kyle Busch (14.3 in 33 starts) and Harvick (14.8 in 39 starts).

Last year, Larson won a Coca-Cola 600 after driving 328 of 400 laps. Kiselovsky only made 21 laps on his win in 2020, so this race can be won in many different ways.
