Reserved grandstand seating and infield camping have officially sold out for this weekend's NASCAR Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Additionally, the Camping World Racing Resort is also sold out. The race track made the announcement on Tuesday.
This marks the second-consecutive year that the crown jewel event has been sold out.
While grandstand seating and infield camping have sold out, Charlotte Motor Speedway says for anyone looking to attend the iconic event, standing-room-only and premium terrace box tickets do remain.
Fans that have access to attend this year's Coca-Cola 600 are licking their chops as last season's edition of the event was an all-time classic.
“With so much great on-track excitement and a rousing pre-race show, last year’s Coca-Cola 600 was pure spectacle, and fans took notice,” said Greg Walter, executive vice president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “We saw strong renewals and have been pacing ahead of our year-over-year sales since the checkered flag fell last season. Our team can’t wait to welcome another packed house as we prepare to write the next memorable chapter in the history of this crown jewel event.”
The 2022 Coca-Cola 600 featured 31 lead changes, the most in the event since the 2014 running of the race. The race also was a true test of the ability of the drivers as the Next Gen car gave them fits all race long.
In all, there were 18 cautions for a grand total of 90 laps in the race, which was extended to 413 laps due to two overtime finish attempts.
Eventual race winner Denny Hamlin went into the final restart of the race with the lead but lost the lead to Kyle Busch on the next-to-last lap. However, Hamlin made a power move to take the lead back on the final lap, and he would go on to score his first-career win in the Coca-Cola 600.
Charlotte Motor Speedway says that while reserved grandstand seating is sold out for the Coca-Cola 600, reserved tickets remain available for the ARCA Menards Series General Tire 150, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series North Carolina Education Lottery 200, and the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco Uniforms 300.
The Coca-Cola 600 is set for Sunday, May 28th. The race will be broadcast on FOX with television coverage beginning at 6:00 PM ET. Radio coverage will be provided by the Performance Racing Network (PRN) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
