NASCAR at Charlotte: Memorial Day Weekend schedule, start time and tv streaming


Perhaps the most exciting racing weekend of the season is upon us. North American fans will see the Indianapolis 500 and then the Coca-Cola 600 this weekend as summer starts its kick off a few weeks early in the world of motorsports.

NASCAR stays home this week after running the All-Star race in Charlotte last week and sets up for its longest race of the season a 600 mile affair at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The event will have four segments instead of the normal three meaning it will pay more playoff points to drivers than any other single race. The Xfinity Series is also in action this week at Charlotte with their event being run on Saturday afternoon.
