What a view

Red, White and Blue
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte on Sunday was big for several reasons. First, the Coca-Cola 600 is the longest race on the schedule. Second, it is Memorial Day weekend, and it's tough to argue that any organization pays a bigger tribute to troops than NASCAR.
Things are about to change
Sprint Cup cars can hit 200 mph on some tracks, but they'll never outrun the sun. Here, drivers like Danica Patrick turn laps as the sun sets and the track cools, completely changing the second half of the race. The change was too great for Patrick, who would crash with Brad Keselowski once the skies went dark.
Bad to be King
Drivers Travis Kvapil (No. 93) and Dave Blaney wreck in Turn 4 shortly after the sun goes down Sunday.
You know this wasn't late in the race
