It is a holiday weekend and it is also time for The Coke Zero 400 which kicks off the 2016 NASCAR coverage.
Dayton, it is where NASCAR began, it is the world center of racing and speed. This weekend NASCAR is back on KFOR.
There is a lot on the line as this is the start to the Sprint Cup Championship in November.
The defending champ is Dale Earnhardt Jr.
There could be some scattered shows before the race and a slight chance during it.
