New qualifying format: The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola will feature NASCAR’s new group qualifying format. The first qualifying elimination round will be 25 minutes in duration and includes all cars. The 24 cars that post the fastest single lap from the first qualifying round will advance to the second round. The remaining cars will be sorted based on their times posted in the first round of qualifying in descending order.

The second qualifying elimination round will be 10 minutes in duration and the 12 cars that post the fastest single lap time will advance to the third and final round. The fastest remaining cars earn positions 13th through 24th based on their times posted in qualifying in descending order. The third and final qualifying round will be five minutes in duration and the fastest single lap time will determine positions 1st through 12th in descending order.

There will be a five-minute break between each qualifying round.

Tony Stewart looks to tie David Pearson: Tony Stewart, always one of the pre-race favorites for the mid-summer classic, will be gunning for his fifth Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola on Saturday, July 5, which would tie him alongside NASCAR Hall of Famer David Pearson for most wins in the 400-mile race.

Dash 4 Cash: The Subway Firecracker 250 Powered By Coca-Cola will serve as the qualifier in the “Dash 4 Cash” bonus program where the top four drivers to receive NASCAR Nationwide Series driver championship points in that race will carry the “Dash 4 Cash” designation in the first race of the bonus program at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Introduced in 2009, “Dash 4 Cash” rewards the highest-finishing eligible driver in four designated races with a $100,000 bonus above and beyond the race purse. Fans can also participate via a sweepstakes that culminates with one lucky fan winning $100,000. The July race at New Hampshire followed by the race at Chicagoland Speedway, the event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the race at Iowa are the “Dash 4 Cash” races for 2014.

Progress continues on DAYTONA Rising: DAYTONA Rising is a $400 million reimagining of an American icon – Daytona International Speedway. Five expanded and redesigned entrances, or “injectors,” will lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to three different concourse levels. Each level features spacious social areas, or “neighborhoods,” along the nearly mile-long frontstretch. At the conclusion of the redevelopment, Daytona International Speedway will have approximately 101,000 permanent, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. In addition, the Speedway will feature over 60 luxury suites with track side views and a completely revamped hospitality experience for corporate guests.

Since Budweiser Speedweeks 2014, the project continues to reach milestones such as:
· Installation of the first escalators

· Installation of the wider and more comfortable seats

· Build out of interior concourses

· Masonry work on the elevator shafts

· Placement of the stadium exterior “skin.”
