Fans of NASCAR can go crazy because it's time to start up those engines for the Coca-Cola 600. If NASCAR isn't your thing, just know that this race is big. In its 50th year, drivers in the race go 600 miles round and round to the finish line. Maybe an equivalent comparison could be music fans getting the chance to see Elvis aka "The King of Rock 'N' Roll"? But at the Coca-Cola 600, nobody is dead -- or so we hope. Drivers: Be careful on the track as you rev it up. $10-$125. Lowe's Motor Speedway, 5555 Concord Pkwy, Concord. 704-455-3200. www.lowesmotorspeedway.com.
