DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – On Saturday, Nov. 13, at 9 a.m. (ET), race fans will have their first opportunity to purchase tickets for one of NASCAR’s most exciting nighttime races– the 53rd annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on July 2, 2011 at Daytona International Speedway.

Tower seats are available starting at $85 and ticket prices for frontstretch grandstand seats start at $44.

In addition, for the first time, special children advance pricing will be available for the Coke Zero 400.  Tickets for children ages 12 and under are $10 and half-off junior prices are available for ages 13-17.  Also, kids 12 and under are free in the Sprint FANZONE.

To help make the race day experience more enjoyable, the speedway recently announced that fans may now carry in soft-sided coolers measuring 14 x 14 x 14 inches or 2,700 cubic inches – six times the size previously permitted.  In addition to the larger cooler, fans can carry in lightweight backpacks or daypacks, approximately 17 inches in length, similar to those used by school students.  Lastly, parking at Daytona International Speedway is free for all attendees.

“Witnessing the excitement of the Coke Zero 400 is one of America’s great Independence Day traditions and now it’s easier than ever for families to attend,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “Our new youth pricing and enhanced carry-in policy should help lower the cost for families looking to catch the stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series under the lights.  Throw in one of the largest fireworks shows on the Southeast and the Coke Zero 400 is a race that every fan wants to experience in-person.”

Also available beginning on Saturday, Nov. 13 will be tickets to the Subway Jalapeno 250 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Friday night, July 1.  Prior to Saturday, Nov. 13, only renewals for seat assignments for the 53rd annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola were taken by the ticket office at Daytona International Speedway.
