Coca-Cola 600: The Good, Bad and Ugly from Sunday's NASCAR Tradition
Memorial Day weekend is a United States tradition, and every year, the holiday is accompanied by the amazing NASCAR racing of the Coca-Cola 600 from the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
While the ending of the race was spectacular and the day of racing overall couldn’t have been better, this event was far from perfect.
After Sunday’s wild race, this is the good, bad and ugly of the 2013 Coca-Cola 600.
The Good: Kevin Harvick’s Performance
This is Harvick’s last year at RCR—he signed with Stewart-Haas Racing for 2014—but his performance Sunday proved that he is anything but a lame-duck driver.
Harvick and the No. 29 team are going for a championship.
Harvick won this race with pit strategy and on-track patience, and that’s usually a great sign for teams in the Sprint Cup championship hunt.
The Bad: Long Race Causes Plenty of Problems
As expected, things got physical on the track, and there were plenty of cautions.
With bona fide stars like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and more having bad luck Sunday night, this was one of the most intense Coca-Cola 600s in a long time.
The Ugly: Fox’s Camera Screws Everything Up
Not only did the rope do serious damage to several cars on track and bring out the red flag—drivers like Kyle Busch and Marcos Ambrose were forced to do major work—10 fans were injured by the cord, according to Charlotte Motor Speedway (h/t ESPN).
