Daytona in July
It’s gonna be hot and humid at one of the most famous racetracks in the nation this weekend. There’s always the potential for rain and thunderstorms amidst the oppressive heat, and you’re certain to get an exciting race out of the whole affair. Daytona is home to dramatic finishes and amazing NASCAR memories.
Daytona International Speedway is a 2.5-mile tri-oval course that drivers will speed around for 400 miles on Saturday night. That’s 160 laps! Highly banked, this track has a 3,000-feet-long back straight, also known as the “superstretch.” It takes less than a minute for NASCAR drivers to complete one lap at Daytona. What makes the Coke Zero 400 even more exciting and dramatic is that it takes place at night under bright lights!

Drivers to Watch at the Coke Zero Sugar 400
Martin Truex, Jr., Denny Hamlin, and Erik Jones had the top speeds in practices this week, all over 205 mph. Kyle Busch is, as always, a hot pick for the winner’s circle on Saturday too. Jones is the reigning champ, but his odds are only 30-1.
Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski are favorites to win it all with 8-1 odds. Hamlin, Busch, Chase Elliot, and Kevin Harvick all sit at 10-1 odds. Clint Bowyer, Ryan Blaney, and Kurt Busch come in next at 14-1.
Keep this in mind if you’re the gambling type!
About the Coke Zero Sugar 400
It’s the second Daytona race of the year! This historic Florida track is actually a little more popular with fans in February than it is on this holiday weekend in July – no doubt due to the heat and conflicting Independence Day plans. (FYI, NASCAR used to hold this race on the actual 4th of July before moving it to Saturday night.) But that’s good news for fans heading to Daytona this weekend. Since the grandstands aren’t usually full, you should be able to snag a great deal on tickets and get them up until the very last minute!
In the words of retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., “There’s not a lot of other tracks that can provide what Daytona can provide on a holiday weekend. I’ve never tried to celebrate that weekend anywhere else other than Daytona.”
Earnhardt, Jr. famously won this race just months after his father died during the Daytona 500 in 2001. (And Jr. won it again in 2015.)
It’s also the end of an era! This is your last chance to see a NASCAR Cup Series race on Independence Day weekend in Daytona! In 2020, the race will be moved to August to become the Cup Series finale of the regular season. The move is due in part to that unpredictable weather and the lack of crowds that we mentioned.
Is it more than just a race?
Yup! Friday is all about Xfinity and Cup Series qualifying, and then Friday night is the Xfinity Circle K Firecracker 250 by Coca Cola.
Tours of the speedway aren’t available on race weekend, but you can still get tickets to visit the DAYTONA 500 winning car and Motorsports Hall of Fame of America areas. If you want to get inside one of the cars and take it for a spin, check out the NASCAR Racing Experience on Friday! Also, be on the lookout for the UNOH Fan Zone where you can walk on top of garages and check out what they’re doing in there. You may even snag some autographs!
If you’re looking for a bit of luxury, browse the Daytona fan hospitality options for lounge access, air conditioning, buffets, bars, pre-race passes, and access to special viewing areas, and the post-race victory lane.
And of course, it’s Independence Day, so don’t miss out on the brilliant fireworks finale happening on Saturday night after the race! All weekend long, you can drop off nonperishable items to contribute to care packages for American troops overseas.
The race begins at 7:30PM EST on Saturday, so you’ll get to watch the sunset as the drivers speed around the track and finish under the bright lights!
