Daytona 500 Champion Joey Logano and longtime Daytona International Speedway ticket holders surprised 22 local military members with free tickets to the 2015 Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola and vintage grandstand seats autographed by the driver on Tuesday.

Along with the two tickets each, the honorees got a chance to see Logano add his “square” to the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame during a special ceremony and tour of the Daytona Rising renovation project.

The 57th annual Coke Zero 400 will be held the evening of Sunday, July 5.
