After continuous rain showers, NASCAR and Daytona International Speedway announced that the Coke Zero Sugar 400 will be run Sunday (July 7) at 1 p.m. ET.
It is the first time since 2015 that the race will be run on Sunday, and the first since 2014 that the race was postponed to Sunday. It’s the seventh July Daytona race in history that has been affected by rain (1977, 1998, 2004, 2005, 2010, 2014 and 2015).
In what could become the final Coke Zero Sugar 400 run during July 4 Weekend, the race will race at its original daytime time frame. To find the last daytime race at Daytona during July, rewind to 2014 when the race was postponed from Saturday to Sunday, though, that, too, was cut short because of rain. When NASCAR deemed the race to be official, Aric Almirola was out front, winning his first career race.
