Daytona Announces Killer July 4 Twinbill

Saturday, July 4 is going to be a VERY busy day at Daytona International Speedway, as the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series combined to present a doubleheader day of racing at the World Center of Racing.

The Grand-Am Brumos Porsche 250 will take place on Saturday afternoon, followed by the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola on Saturday night at 8 p.m.

The Grand American Rolex Series race has historically been scheduled for the previous Thursday, but will move to Saturday as a one-day event, with practice and qualifying in the morning.

NASCAR drivers Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, AJ Allmendinger and Casey Mears all took part in this month's season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona, and could theoretically drive in both events on July 4, though the logistics and physical demands of such a twinbill make double-dipping unlikely.
