DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Following the 55th annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday, July 6, there will be a big celebration in Gatorade Victory Lane for the winning team and driver of the mid-summer classic.
There will also be a massive celebration in the sky thanks to Fireworks By Santore, which will once again deliver race fans the largest fireworks show in the Southeast.
Fireworks By Santore will illuminate the sky of Daytona International Speedway with a 15-minute show shot from 15 different locations located along the backstretch.
It will take seven days and a crew of 10 from Fireworks By Santore to set up the show, which is electronically fired using state-of-the-art digital firing equipment. To put together the largest fireworks show in the Southeast, Fireworks by Santore will utilize:
• Shells ranging in size from 1” to 8”
• 10,000+ lbs of explosive powder
• 11,000 individual explosions
The types of shells range from the more traditional such as Chrysanthemum, Peonies, Dahlias, Willows and Salutes to specialty shells such as Smiley Faces, Star Patterns, Double Rings, 4 Color Changing, Shell of Shells, Crossettes, Strobing Diadems, Twilight Glitters and vibrant new pastel colors.
Among the new shells to the show are the Sweeping Rings, Sweeping Inward, Sweeping Outward, Mushroom, Jelly Fish, Cut Glass, Octopus, Kaleidoscopes, Diamond Screamers and Tourbillions.
The show will begin with red and white fireworks for 30 seconds and the finale will last for approximately one minute, 30 seconds and will have over 2,000 individual pieces. The show uses enough control wire to wrap a lap and a half around the legendary 2.5-mile tri-oval.
