2012 Coke Zero 400 Schedule: Nationwide Series Kicks Off Weekend On Friday Night

NASCAR returns to Dayton International Speedway this weekend for their summer event, the Coke Zero 400. There is a full set of events on tap building towards Saturday night's race. The Nationwide Series race will take place on Friday night, starting a 7:30 and will run for 250 miles. The main event is set for the same time on Saturday night.

The weather forecast is what you would expect for early July in Daytona -- hot and humid with the potential for thunderstorms. The rain should hold off on Friday but there is a chance for isolated storm on Saturday night.
