NASCAR at Charlotte live race updates, results, highlights from the 2021 Coca-Cola 600

Chase Elliott will look to become the first back-to-back winner of the 2021 NASCAR season on Sunday, a week after winning the rain-shortened Texas Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas.

Luckily for Elliott, he has enjoyed plenty of success at Charlotte Motor Speedway, finishing second at the 2020 Coca-Cola 600 — albeit in heartbreaking fashion — and then returning to win the Alsco Uniforms 500 and Bank of America Roval 400.

Elliott, who finished third in Saturday’s qualifying and is fifth in the NASCAR Cup Series point standings, has raced exceptionally well in the last four races: He finished in the top 10 at Kansas, Darlington, Dover and Texas, including top-five finishes at all but Darlington.
