NASCAR celebrates this Memorial Day with Sunday's running of the Coca Cola 600. Kurt Busch doubles up this week at Charlotte and at the Indianapolis 500 and the NASCAR Hall of Fame announces the Class of 2015.

This weekend drivers are hoping to add one of the 'Crown Jewels' of racing to their resume as they head to Charlotte for the longest race of the season, the Coca Cola 600. For Jamie McMurray this track is special because
(McMurray) "I mean, I won my first race here... We won here in 2010. This has been just been a really good track for me."
Keep your eye on Kurt Busch as he attempts 'The Double' competing in the Indy 500 in the morning and then flying to Charlotte for the Coke 600 that evening. And how does Busch think he'll do at Indy?
(Busch) "I'm glad the Indy portion is first because that's where I'm the most inexperienced -- that's when I'll be at my best."
Busch is trying to become the fourth driver to finish both races on the same day.
And congratulations to the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2015. Going into the Hall next year are drivers Bill Elliot, Rex White, Joe Weatherly, Fred Lorenzen and Wendell Scott, the first African-American to race full time in NASCAR.
