On Saturday, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series moves to Daytona Beach, Florida for the Coke Zero. The famous tri-oval track of the Daytona International Speedway will host the race at 7:30PM ET.

Last week, Kurt Busch earned his first win of the season as well as his first race win on a road course. He led 76 of 110 laps and beat 2nd place finisher Jeff Gordon by 2.685 seconds. The win moved him up in the standings at 4th place and dislodged Dale Earnhardt Jr., to 7th place.

Carl Edwards still leads the driver's standings with 573 points. He has a 25-point lead over Kevin Harvick while Jimmie Johnson sits at the third place. The other notable drivers in the standing are: Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Clint Bowyer, Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Kevin Harvick as the favorite to win the Coke Zero 400. Since the race is at Daytona, Dale Earnhardt Jr., looms as his fierce competitor in this race.
