NASCAR 2022: Qualifying order for Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway

Charlotte Motor Speedway is all set to host the longest race of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season this weekend. Coca-Cola 600 is set to start at 06:00 p.m. ET this Sunday for a 400-lap action-packed race.

Located in Concord, North Carolina outside Charlotte, the Charlotte Motor Speedway boasts a quad-oval design track with 1.5 miles of total track length. The track was opened in 1960 and features 24° of banking in turns and 5° of banking in straightaways. Apart from making its two appearances on the NASCAR calendar this season, the track will also host dirt racing, including the World of Outlaws finals, among other popular racing events.

The Coca-Cola 600 will feature 37 drivers. Just like the other NASCAR Cup Series races, practice sessions will open this racing weekend on Saturday, May 28, at 7:00 p.m. ET on FS1. The practice session is scheduled for 15-20 minutes for each group.

It will be followed by the qualifying session at 7:45 p.m. ET, which will determine the starting positions for Sunday’s race.

While the qualifying rules will remain the same, the 37 drivers will be divided into two groups in an odd-even order and each group will run for two laps. The fastest five cars from each group will advance to the second round to win the pole for the prestigious Coca-Cola 600.
