What to Watch For At Charlotte

A win for Kevin Harvick would be his third straight giving him six victories through 13 races. He could become only the seventh driver in NASCAR history to win at that rate.

Roush-Fenway Racing driver Matt Kenseth will be making his second start of the season. He is a two-time winner at Charlotte and holds the fourth-best driver rating – behind Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, and Denny Hamlin.

Kasey Kahne’s four wins at Charlotte is second only to Johnson’s eight among drivers entered this weekend.

The top-five starting positions have easily produced the most winners of the 600 – 54 percent of the races have been won those positions on the grid. The outside pole position has produced the most race winners (17).

Johnson holds the record for winning at Charlotte after starting from the farthest position (37th, in 2003) on the grid.

Ryan Newman is 0-for-34 at Charlotte, the longest winless streak among those entered. The Charlotte season sweep has happened eight times including each year from 2004-07.

Hendrick driver Alex Bowman won his only NASCAR national series race here at Charlotte in last year’s Fall Xfinity Series race.

Sunday will be a completely full day of auto racing!
