Since 2018, the Charlotte Motor Speedway oval has hosted only one NASCAR Cup Series race each year, thanks to the fact that the track's playoff date was given to the interior road course, officially called the Roval.

But that one oval race is year is a crown jewel on the 36-race schedule, as it is the longest race of the year: the Coca-Cola 600.

Sunday night's race, which was pushed back to Monday last year due to rain, is scheduled to be a 400-lap race around the four-turn, 1.5-mile (2.414-kilometer) Concord, North Carolina oval. It is contested on Memorial Day Weekend each year.

The traditional qualifying format is set to be utilized to determine the starting lineup, as Charlotte Motor Speedway is neither a superspeedway nor a short track. Drivers are split up into two groups, with the qualifying order decided by a four-variable metric NASCAR has used since 2020, and each driver gets a single-lap attempt.

A full breakdown of that formula can be found here, but it is worth noting that the statistics used for this week are based on the most recent points race, which took place at Darlington Raceway two weekends ago. The results of this past Sunday night's All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway were not considered.

The fastest five drivers in each of the two groups advance to the second round shootout for the pole position, where they are each allowed to make another single-lap qualifying attempt. Drivers who fail to advance from the first group line up on the outside row while drivers who fail to advance from the second group line up on the inside row, a slight change from last year.
