The Daytona venue for one of the "coolest" races of the summer begins at sundown on one of the biggest American holiday weekends.
The Coke Zero 400, (formerly known as The Pepsi 400, or more popularly The Firecracker 400) is a 160 lap, 400 mile nighttime race run by some of NASCAR's biggest superstars.
Tickets traditionally go on sale in October of the previous year, but if you hadn't gotten a ticket, join millions of other NASCAR fans in front of the TV as the 58th annual running of the Coke Zero 400 begins with complete TV coverage on NBC beginning at 7:30PM ET on Saturday night, July 7, 2018.
Don't miss it. As the old saying goes: You never know what's going to happen at Daytona!
All about the Coke Zero 400
Coke Zero 400 is the only other race besides the Daytona 500 to be held at Daytona International Raceway, and attracts the sport's most famous stars and cars in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Why all the fuss? Coke Zero's designation as a restrictor-plate Cup Series race which means that cars run inches apart at speeds up to 200 mph!
The race also just happens to be scheduled around an American celebration. That is, the annual 4th of July weekend when Daytona puts on a show featuring the biggest fireworks display in the Southeast. What could be more patriotic than mixing it up during a summer holiday weekend with a memorable Nascar party to celebrate with friends and family?
