Plenty of Coke Zero 400 activities underway at Speedway
The 59th Annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola is Saturday night at the Daytona International Speedway. Events already are underway, which include tours, activities for kids, and opportunities for fans to meet the drivers.

Friday night’s Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 takes place on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The Coke Zero 400 starts at 7:30 p.m. on July 1 with fireworks scheduled after the big race.

This could be an emotional one because popular racecar driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced earlier this year that this would be his last one.
