Results, point standings after Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte
Brad Keselowski held off Jimmie Johnson in the final two laps to win Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Keselowski earned his first win of 2020. The race went five laps into overtime past the scheduled 400 laps. But Johnson’s runner-up finish was short-lived. He was disqualified after his car failed post-race inspection.
Had that not happened, it would have been Johnson’s first runner-up finish in the 102-race winless streak that dates back to his most recent win, June 4, 2017 at Dover.
Chase Elliott appeared headed to the win when a late caution from teammate William Byron sent NASCAR’s longest race into overtime. Elliott pitted for four tires before the final restart but could not catch Keselowski or Johnson.
Elliott finished second after Johnson’s DQ, followed by Ryan Blaney, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick.
Sixth through 10 were Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch, Tyler Reddick, Christopher Bell and Chris Buescher.
Kevin Harvick remains atop the point standings heading into Wednesday night’s return to Charlotte for the 500 kilometer race there.
