Coke Zero 400 Daytona Beach
The Coke Zero 400 Daytona Beach is a 160 lap, 400 mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race that is held on the first Saturday night of July at the Daytona International Speedway. In 2008 Coke became the official soft drink provider for the race and chose to use their name to title the race. This is an extremely popular summer race and attracts thousands of people each year. If you’re planning to be one of the many to attend the Coke Zero 400 Daytona Beach then you need to make you reservations in advance. A great place to stay during this event is the Hilton Daytona Oceanfront Resort. We’re located right on the beautiful beaches of Florida and we’ll keep you close to all the NASCAR action.
The Coke Zero 400 Daytona Beach began in 1959 and was called the Firecracker 250, named for its 250 mile course and its July 4th scheduling. In 1963 it was expanded to a 400 mile course and the name changed to the Firecracker 400. In 1985 PepsiCo became the title sponsor so the name changed again to Pepsi Firecracker 400. Eventually the “Firecracker” was dropped and it was known as the Pepsi 400 until 2007. For most of the race’s history it started in the morning to avoid the Florida heat of the day. However, after 1997 the race began to be held at night after a new lighting project was completed at the raceway.
