NASCAR at Charlotte live race updates, results, highlights from the 2021 Coca-Cola 600

Chase Elliott will look to become the first back-to-back winner of the 2021 NASCAR season on Sunday, a week after winning the rain-shortened Texas Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas.

Luckily for Elliott, he has enjoyed plenty of success at Charlotte Motor Speedway, finishing second at the 2020 Coca-Cola 600 — albeit in heartbreaking fashion — and then returning to win the Alsco Uniforms 500 and Bank of America Roval 400.

Elliott, who finished third in Saturday’s qualifying and is fifth in the NASCAR Cup Series point standings, has raced exceptionally well in the last four races: He finished in the top 10 at Kansas, Darlington, Dover and Texas, including top-five finishes at all but Darlington.

Sporting News is tracking live updates and lap-by-lap highlights from NASCAR’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday night. Follow below for complete results from the Coca-Cola 600.

NASCAR at Charlotte live updates, highlights from Coca-Cola 600

All times Eastern

6:59 p.m.: Per the Fox telecast, Ross Chastain’s car has suffered a broken oil pump belt. His crew will try to replace it but that could very well spell the end of his day.

6:58 p.m.: And now DiBenedetto surrenders the lead by pitting. Larson overtakes Alfredo and regains the lead.

6:57 p.m.: Meanwhile, DiBenedetto takes over first place after Keselowski pits for the first time.

6:56 p.m.: Curious. Ryan Blaney is in for his second stop. He’s getting work done on his car, so something must have gone awry in the first pit.

6:54 p.m.: Brad Keselowski, Matt DiBenedetto, Anthony Alfredo, Larson and Elliott make up your top five, respectively, after the pit. William Byron, Kevin Harvick, Austion Dillon, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. round out the top 10.

6:53 p.m.: A portion of the field is pitting on Lap 50. Believe that costs Larson the lead for the first time today, as well.

6:48 p.m.: Kyle Busch is making moves. He’s currently No. 7 after starting the race in the 20th position.

6:40 p.m.: Elliott has moved up one spot, but still trails race leader Kyle Larson by nearly a second. Larson has the entire first quarter of Stage 1.

6:30 p.m.: Reminder: No competition caution for today’s race. Stage 1 will last 100 laps, Stage 2 200 laps and Stage 3 (end of race) 300 laps.

6:28 p.m.: And they’re off!

6:23 p.m.: The cars are out on the track. Green wave should wave here any minute now.

6:20 p.m.: Almost that time:

NASCAR start time today
