CHAROLTTE, North Carolina (WKBN) – NASCAR drivers are set for their fourth race in the last seven days as they head to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coca-Cola 600.

Sunday’s race will also be the first since the restart that will feature traditional qualifying. The only difference is that it will happen just hours before the race instead of the day before.
