The first 14 races of the 2021 are in the books and now the NACAR Cup Series enters the summer part of the schedule with only 12 races left in the regular season. It is hard to believe the playoffs are that close, but “The Best Season Ever” is flying bye.
The Coca-Cola 600 is a marathon races with 10+ pit stops and a lot of mechanical failures. Each 600 race is different and that is why we have drivers like Austin Dillon winning the race. Instead of focusing on the stats from previous Coca-Cola 600’s, it is wise to look at the drivers who have been fast on the 1.5-mile tracks in 2021. The stats this week will look at the drivers who have run well in the 550 HP aero package on the intermediate tracks.
Here are the stats you need to know for the Coca-Cola 600…
Driver Rating at 1.5-Mile Tracks in 2021
Driver Rating is always a good stat to use because it incorporates a little bit of everything throughout the race and paints a picture of which drivers had the fast cars. The drivers who have run well at the four 1.5-mile tracks this season (Atlanta, Homestead, Las Vegas and Kansas) should be up front Sunday.
Average Finishing Position at 1.5-Mile Tracks in 2021
Some drivers are better than others at finding their way to the front at the end of the race. That can be because of pit strategy or because the adjustments to their car paid off at the end of the race.
