Though Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Carl Edwards have all scored multiple wins so far this year, the top of the race order has only one of those names in it: Carl Edwards. Look for Edwards to make a strong showing, especially coming off his win at last weekend's All-Star Race also at Charlotte.
Kurt Busch starts well back in 26th place, and Harvick even farther back in 28th. Despite the slow going in qualifying, however, look for these two to pick up some speed at race pace.
First-time winner David Ragan, who recently proved his stuff at the Sprint Showdown race at Charlotte so there's every possibility he could make another strong showing as well, though he cautioned before the Coke 600 that Charlotte is all about track position, and the importance of starting up front. Ragan will be starting from 8th, with some serious talent ahead of him, so he'll have work to do to bring home another win.
Of course, all of the drivers will have to contend with the length of the 600 mile race, and the changes that happen to the track over the course of the night as temperatures drop and the feel of the cars changes. There's always the inevitable drama of crashes and rivalries, as well.
With so many top drivers fighting it out, some of them starting from mid-pack, it's going to be an exciting race. Who'll win? Watch and find out.
