Nascar Sprint Cup Series Daytona Beach Tickets
The Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona Beach is one of the two major races that the speedway hosts during the year, the second one being the Daytona 500. The Daytona International Speedway was established in 1959 and the first race on this track was held on the fourth of July during that year. Although it has undergone several name changes, since 2008 Coca Cola has acquired the naming rights and the Sprint Cup race at Daytona is known as the ‘Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca-Cola’. This race has earned a reputation for being a very closely contested race and is also popular for the post-race fireworks.

The defending champion
The race during the 2014 season at the Daytona Beach saw lots of rain which delayed the start of events by a day, and then further caused the race to be shortened. Aric Almirola won the shortened race in the designated one hundred and twelve laps, clocking a time of just over two hours and nine minutes.
A look at the standings
The current season has seen Kevin Harvick leading the drivers after nearly half the races, in the first phase of the Sprint Cup. The names we have grown accustomed to seeing in the top five are there, namely Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. The race at Pocono, the fourteenth race of the season, saw another name enter the list of first place finishers; Martin Truex Jr. came first, breaking a winless streak that lasted sixty nine races for him. This dominating performance from Truex led him to become the tenth different winner in the Sprint Cup. This goes on to show how this season has shaped up so far. With the competition heating up, there can be no promises on who will enter the Chase this season.
