NASCAR Hits Mid-way Point

The annual mid-season event of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series takes place in Daytona Beach tonight. Toyota teammates Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth will lead the field to green  for the Coke Zero 400 just before 8:00 p.m.

With the Daytona 500 kicking off the start to the racing season each year, the return of the series to Daytona International Speedway signals we are midway through the year.

One thing about Daytona is that no matter what time of year it is the stars come out. Tonight’s race has three grand marshals: Shaquille O’Neal, Adam Sandler and Kevin James, who are promoting the movie “Grown Ups 2.” Also, Sheryl Crow – who will performing at 107.7 GNA’s sold-out Countryfest next Saturday – will be giving a pre-race concert this Saturday before tonight’s race.

Although the pole is Kyle Busch’s third of the year and 13th of his career, it is the first time that he has set fast time in qualifying at a restrictor-plate superspeedway.

Kenseth has already been to victory lane at Daytona this weekend as he picked up the win in Friday night’s Firecracker 250 for the Nationwide series.

Here is the complete lineup for tonight’s Cup race.
