DAYTONA BEACH — The race once known as the Firecracker 400 is on the move. Daytona International Speedway’s NASCAR Cup Series summer race was part of a mass shuffling of the 2020 schedule, announced Tuesday by the sanctioning body. The Coke Zero Sugar 400, which the Speedway has always hosted on July 4 or the Fourth of July weekend since the Speedway opened in 1959, will be moved to Aug. 29 next year. Daytona will now open and close the 2020 Cup Series regular season.

Daytona International Speedway’s NASCAR Cup Series summer race was part of a mass shuffling of the 2020 schedule, announced Tuesday by the sanctioning body.

The Coke Zero Sugar 400, which the Speedway has always hosted on July 4 or the Fourth of July weekend since the Speedway opened in 1959, will be moved to Aug. 29 next year.

Daytona will now open and close the 2020 Cup Series regular season. The Daytona 500 remains as the kickoff event in February.

Moving the Coke Zero Sugar 400 to August means that it is now the last race of the Cup Series’ regular season and could impact the playoffs.

“This is a huge change,” Speedway President Chip Wile said. “Now we will bookend the regular season by finishing here with the 400. Drivers will have an opportunity to have a walk-off home run moment to make the playoffs.”
