The following is a list of the NASCAR drivers with the most wins in the Coca-Cola 600 Sprint Cup race that is held annually during Memorial Day weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Coca-Cola 600 has been held annually since 1960. At 600 miles in length, it is the longest NASCAR race, and it is also one of the top races most NASCAR drivers would love to win. I've listed all the drivers with at least three wins.

In 2014, Kurt Busch will become the fourth driver to compete in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. The other three drivers are John Andretti, Robby Gordon (five times), and Tony Stewart (twice). Only Stewart completed both races, finishing sixth in the Indy 500 and third in the Coca-Cola 600 in 2001.
