Coke Zero Sugar 400 Postponed to Sunday

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.

The race will be televised on NBC as it was planned originally. Joey Logano and Kyle Busch will lead the field to green.

Starting Lineup for Sunday’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona

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.

    If the “event” had been run on July 4th at 10 am would it have been run on time?

      But the race was scheduled for July 6th at 7:30 PM, so if they had run it on July 4th at 10 AM wouldn’t that have meant it was run early and not “on time”? 🙂
