NASCAR’s 4th of July weekend tradition returned to Saturday night with the first Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola at the world's only motorsports stadium.
Once again, there proved to be plenty of excitement, from Montgomery Gentry’s pre-race concert to the thrilling finish that saw Brad Keselowski capture his first DAYTONA win and the largest fireworks show in the Southeast.
The racing action was accompanied by a terrific showcase of patriotism during pre-race ceremonies, as over 200 military and NASCAR team members unfurled a 150’x300’ American flag while the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence Band performed the national anthem, all followed by a stunning flyover by four F-16’s from the 93rd Fighter Squadron and the moving Congressional Medal of Honor ceremony.
We asked fans to send in their favorites photos from the memorable holiday weekend and highlighted a few of our favorites below.
