Huge Fireworks Show to Follow Coke Zero 400 on July 6

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida – While NASCAR’s Coke Zero 400 will be held on Saturday July 6 at 7:30 pm, there will be even more fireworks at the completion of the race.  What officials are calling “the largest fireworks show in the Southeast” will be shot off following the race.

Fireworks By Santore will illuminate the sky of Daytona International Speedway with a 15-minute show from 15 different locations located along the backstretch.

It will take seven days and a crew of 10 to set up the show, which is electronically fired using state-of-the-art digital firing equipment. The show will use:

n  Shells ranging in size from 1” to 8”

n  10,000+ lbs of explosive powder

n  11,000 individual explosions

The show will begin with red and white fireworks for 30 seconds and the finale will last for approximately one minute, 30 seconds and will have over 2,000 individual pieces. The show uses enough control wire to wrap a lap and a half around the legendary 2.5-mile tri-oval.
