Denny Hamlin used a fast pit stop late in the third stage to capture the stage win with 100 laps remaining in the Coca-Cola 600. So far it has been a Toyota party, with Hamlin the leader, followed by the Toyotas of Kyle Busch (Stage 1 winner), Matt Kenseth, Martin Truex Jr. (Stage 2 winner) and Erik Jones. Jimmie Johnson, the Chevrolet driver who appears to have the car that can challenge the Toyotas, had a bad pit stop and is 11th with 100 laps left at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Kevin Harvick car on the pole for the Coca-Cola 600 goes through prerace body inspection. The race at Charlotte is the longest – 600 miles – of the season, and it is worth the most of any regular-season race. NASCAR decided two weeks ago to have the race broken into four stages (100 laps, 150 miles apiece) instead of the normal three, and it will award regular-season points and a playoff point at the end of each of the first three stages, just as it does for the first two stages at other events.

Former NASCAR driver Brett Bodine, whose first Cup race was at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 1986, takes us for a 110-mph lap in the Toyota Camry pace car. Amazing how you feel the bumps going that fast!

NASCAR will add more liquid resin to the upper groove overnight at Charlotte Motor Speedway as it hopes to create enough grip that NASCAR Cup drivers will be able to use that lane to maintain speed or pass cars in the lower lane. Cup drivers who competed in the Xfinity race Saturday did not see considerable difference. Brad Keselowski: "A little bit -- it's better than nothing." Considering temperatures will be cooler for the race Sunday night, the the track could race much different than Saturday afternoon.
