NASCAR At Daytona Live Race Updates, Results, Highlights From Coke Zero Sugar 400


The NASCAR Cup Series regular season is coming to an end, and all eyes will be on Daytona with just one driver playoff spot remaining.

Any driver currently in the top 30 in points without a win can lock up that last spot by taking the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday. Should a playoff driver or a driver not eligible for the playoffs claim first place, then two drivers could grab the final spot on points: Tyler Reddick and Austin Dillon.

The two Richard Childress Racing teammates are neck and neck in the standings, with Reddick holding the slight edge, 677-652. If the race comes down to the wire, expect to see these drivers battle it out with the stakes so high.
