No, it's not the Daytona 500, but it's still a race at Daytona -- and a night race as that.

NASCAR returns to Daytona on Saturday night for the Coke Zero 400, as is tradition for the Fourth of July. NASCAR fans will be delighted to know that Saturday night's race will have limited commercial interruption. Televised coverage can be found on TNT, with only local commercial breaks -- no national commercials.

Bobby Bowden will be in attendance, and he'll be the one telling the drivers to start their engines. The race is scheduled to begin at around 7:45 p.m. ET.
