Brad Keselowski finished fourth in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and snapped a two-race skid on this track of finishes outside the top 10.

Keselowski was not particularly strong last year on this 1.5-miler, but he ended 2016 with a four-race streak of top-10s. We had him handicapped seventh on this week’s Cheat Sheets, so he outperformed expectations slightly after a couple of front runners (Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano) experience trouble.

Denny Hamlin finished third in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to score his third consecutive top-five on this track.

This was also Hamlin’s 14th top-10 finish in the last 16 Charlotte. We knew he would be one of the top drivers if he could stay out of trouble and that is precisely what he did.

Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway without leading a single lap.

This was Truex’s 11th top-five in the last 12 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He had to overcome at least two problems in the pits to charge back up to the leaders. At times, he seemed to have a faster car than Busch, but that was most likely because the winner Kyle Busch was managing the gap.

Kyle Busch absolutely dominated the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and won handily over Martin Truex Jr.

By winning at Charlotte, Busch has now won on every track NASCAR on which he’s competed. He is the first driver to ever perform that feat in the 60 years of the series. He led 377 of the 400 laps anwon all three stages of the race. No one has been as dominant all year.

Kyle Busch won all three stages of the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, leading 279 of 300 laps.

Ryan Blaney blew an engine with 22 laps remaining in stage three of the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and exited the race with his car on fire.

Blaney was living with engine problems most of the race and the crew told him to run it until he blew up. Blaney was still on the lead lap at the time.

Kyle Larson got loose in turn four on lap 275 of 400 and spun in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Larson kissed the outside wall, but did a great job of staying off the inside wall. He’s still in it and could come from the back of the lead lap.

Chris Buescher slapped the wall on lap 258 of 400 that makes up the distance of the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Buescher was already multiple laps off the pace in 29th at the time of the spin. He will continue to lose laps, but should not lose many more positions.

Jimmie Johnson was spun by Denny Hamlin early in stage two of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway but did not collect anyone.

Joey Logano was spun by Erik Jones in the slowdown, but did not do much damage. Johnson was not hit by anyone either and what could have been a huge incident was a remarkable display of driving all around.
