DAYTONA BEACH, FL - RIS - Saturday nights's scheduled running of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 has been postponed because of rain.  The scheduled start of 7:40 came and went and the rain persisted.  The race was moved to Sunday, July 7 at 1 p.m. ET, airing live on NBC, the NBC Sports App, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.  Rain moved into the Daytona Beach, Florida, area about two hours before green flag. Despite NASCAR’s track-drying efforts, the race was moved because the forecast for the rest of the night was not favorable.

Once the race gets underway, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series points leader Joey Logano will lead the field to the green flag in the No. 22 Team Penske Ford. Kyle Busch, in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, will also be on the front row.  With qualifying cancelled because of rain, the starting lineup was determined by owner's points.  The complete starting lineup can be found elsewhere in these pages.
