The Coke Zero 400 is held at Daytona International Speedway, and it is the second race at the track during the NASCAR schedule.
It hasn't been around all that long, but was added to the schedule because of the popularity of the race track, which has long opened the season with the Daytona 500. While Charlotte may be the home of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, many believe the racing world centers on Daytona.
The race is run on July 2, making it the new Fourth of July weekend tradition in the NASCAR world.
Unlike the Daytona 500, this race is run at night, making it a fun atmosphere for the drivers and fans. It is capped off by a celebration from the winning driver and a huge fireworks display that lights up the sky.
Tony Stewart will be the guy to keep an eye on at this year's race. He has won the Coke Zero three times in the past six years despite the fact that he has never made it to Victory Lane in the Daytona 500.
