The longest race of the season is upon us! The Coca-Cola 600 is scheduled for this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the amount of time results in subtle changes to the track surface over the course of the race. The 2021 Coca-Cola 600 will air this Sunday, May 23 on FOX. Viewers can watch a live stream at FOX.com/list or through the Bally Sports app.

Last year, Brad Keselowski won the race after a weather delay sent it late into the evening. The race went into overtime resulting in a finish just after midnight. The top included Keselowski, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Kyle Busch, and Kevin Harvick.

Last year’s 5th place finisher, Martin Truex, Jr., is this year’s favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +400. Elliott is right behind him at +550. He’s followed by Busch and Kyle Larson at +600. Truex won the Coca-Cola 600 in 2019 and 2016, while Kyle Busch won it in 2018.

Here are the odds for all the drivers competing in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
