It's NASCAR race night at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and we've got the actual race start time, the starting lineup and some other facts about the Coca-Cola 600 for you below.
Start time: The command to start engines will be given by a group of military people at 6:10 p.m. Eastern time. After a few pace laps, the green flag will wave at precisely 6:19 p.m. Eastern. So if you want to skip the pre-race show and just tune in for the actual race, flip your TV on at 6:19.
Race name/distance: The Coca-Cola 600, formerly the World 600, is one of NASCAR's crown jewel events and is the longest race of the season – 600 miles, obviously. How many laps does it take to go 600 miles around Charlotte Motor Speedway? That would be 400 (it's a 1.5-mile track).
TV and radio: As for all of the races through May, FOX is televising the Charlotte race. FOX only has one more race after this, then turns over the broadcasting to TNT for a six-race stretch. The radio broadcast can be found on your local Performance Racing Network (PRN) affiliate. Click here to see a list of PRN stations where you can listen.
National anthem: Formerly known as "Hootie" in the band Hootie and the Blowfish, rocker-turned-country singer Darius Rucker will perform the national anthem. Prior to Rucker's performance, the track will have a 21-gun salute and a bugler from Ft. Bragg will play taps.
Tickets: There are still tickets available for the Coca-Cola 600 if you're thinking of making a last-minute trip today.
Weather: Pack your sunblock. It's going to feel like summer throughout most of the day on Sunday with highs in the upper 80s, according to the NASCAR Weatherman's forecast for Charlotte.
Last time: Kurt Busch completed his Speedweeks sweep in 2010, giving team owner Roger Penske another Memorial Day Weekend victory. Busch and Jamie McMurray had the best cars throughout the race, but Busch beat out McMurray on a late pit stop, then overtook three cars who didn't pit.
