Charlotte Motor Speedway is scheduled to host one of the crown jewel races on the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series schedule this Sunday night, that being the annual Coca-Cola 600, the longest race on the 36-event calendar.

Sunday's endurance race, which was postponed to Monday last year due to rain, is set to be a 400-lap race around the four-turn, 1.5-mile (2.414-kilometer) Concord, North Carolina oval.

With Charlotte Motor Speedway not being a superspeedway or a short oval, the regular qualifying format is set to be utilized. Each driver is set to make a single-lap attempt in the first round, and drivers are split up into two groups.

The groups, and specifically the qualifying order of each group, were determined by a four-variable metric that NASCAR has used since 2020. A full breakdown of that formula can be found here.

The top five drivers in each group advance to the shootout for the pole position. Unlike last year, the drivers in the first group who fail to advance to the second round are set to line up on the outside row, and the drivers in the second group who fail to advance to the second round are set to line up on the inside row.

In previous years, lap times were combined from both groups, but that is no longer the case due to the potential for differences in conditions from group to group.
