The longest race of the NASCAR season the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway got a little longer Saturday nite. A late race caution would see the race extend into overtime after a spin by William Byron on lap 398 of 400, At the time of the caution Chase Elliott was out front looking for the checkers. Some drivers elected to pit for fresh tires, while others stayed out. On the restart Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson battled to the line with Keselowski getting to the finish line first by .293 seconds.

“It’s major! It’s the Coke 600. That only leaves one major for me, the Daytona 500. We’re checking ’em off. We may not have been the fastest car today, but, whoa, did we grind this one out. The pit crew on the yellow before the last had a blazing stop to get us up front.”
