The Lyrics

This song is written from the perspective of a young NASCAR driver seeking (and eventually scoring) his first Cup Series win in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, one of NASCAR's most prestigious races.
Making my way around the track, in second place
Just one car left I need to pass to win the race
Staring blankly ahead, just making my way
Making a way past cars that can't keep pace

And I need a win
I don't have a win
And now I wonder

Can I get up into first place
And maybe somehow win this race
'Cause you know I'd drive 600 miles
To get to Victory Lane tonight

It's always times like these when I'm running well
And I wonder if things will go right for me
'Cause things always go wrong, and I don't belong
In winner's circle after a victory

'Cause I need this win
I still don't have a win
And now I'm out front

I passed "7-Time", I'm in first place
If all goes well, I'll win this race
'Cause in this contest of 600 miles
I have a car to win tonight

And I, I've come close at Pocono
But still haven't scored that victory
Now at Charlotte it's 2 to go
2 to go

Making my way around the track, in first place
But with the 48 on my tail primed for attack
Now the flagman unfurls the white flag
I have this race in the bag

And I'm on the backstretch
And my crew chief's impressed
I've got this locked up

The flagman waves the checkered flag
My first Cup victory's in the bag
You know that I drove 600 miles
To get my first win here

And now I'll head to Victory Lane
The crowd at Charlotte's just going insane
'Cause I won after 600 miles
And got into the playoffs; my efforts have paid off tonight
