NASCAR Pre-Race Media: Top 5 sleepers for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN)

We’ve arrived at NASCAR’s longest race of the season for 600 miles of action during Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN) at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This year’s race will look a lot different aesthetically than last with the addition of fans being back in the stands this Memorial Day weekend.

Will those fans be treated to a surprise winner? We’ve had plenty of them this season. If someone new does win, look no further than this list.

Ryan Blaney (+1600)

He’s already won on a 1.5-mile track in Atlanta this season. Add to the fact that he was third in the second oval race at Charlotte last year and you have reason to take a chance on a driver that’s only had two top 10’s in just nine oval starts at Charlotte.

William Byron (+1800)

He’s had a top 11 in literally every race since leaving Daytona. He’s also been good on 1.5-mile tracks this season too and has a top 10 recently in the ‘600.

Christopher Bell (+2500)

Worth a look. Bell, was ninth in last year’s Coke 600 and is now with a JGR car.

Kurt Busch (+3300)

He’s ready for a ‘600 win. Busch, has three top eight finishes in his last four Charlotte oval starts including eight in his last 10 tries.

Tyler Reddick (+4000)

Here’s a good one too. Reddick was eighth in this race last year and won the 2019 Xfinity Series race from this track too. He’s scored six top 10’s in his last eight starts on the season.

Austin Dillon (+6000)

He’s a past winner of this race and won on a like track at Texas last summer. Dillon, was also eighth in the second oval race last May.
