It's Fourth of July weekend, which for NASCAR fans only means one thing: It's time to go back to Daytona.
The summer race at the Daytona International Speedway is the Coke Zero 400. This year, defending champion Jimmie Johnson will come to town along with a throng of competitors who hope to create fireworks of their own on Saturday night.
Held under the lights, the Coke Zero 400 is a restrictor-plate race, meaning anything can happen. With the Chase for the Sprint Cup heating up, drivers without a win this season will be hungry for the opportunity to correct that.
So enjoy the long weekend, put up your feet and celebrate Independence Day with an exciting race at Daytona. Here's everything you need to know, including favorites, dark horses and a prediction.
