Penske/Ganassi Have Struggled In Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

It would be a dream weekend for either Team Penske or Chip Ganassi Racing if they could win the Indy-Charlotte double in the same day. So far, it’s never happened. For some reason, as much success that Penske and Ganassi have had at Indy, they’ve struggled in the Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Jamie McMurray for Ganassi does have three straight top 12 finishes at Charlotte, but he hasn’t been a true contender to win though. Plus, so far in 2018, McMurray hasn’t exactly had the most success.

Harvick Makes Late Race Pass To Win Wild KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas
