Following two separate life ending accidents to drivers Marshall Teague and George Amick during the inaugural USAC Championship (Indy Car) weekend events at Daytona International Speedway in April of 1959, speedway officials announced that extremely high speeds would prompt them to conclude any scheduled events at the track, including a 300 mile race scheduled on July 4. William France Sr., the Daytona superspeedway owner at the time, announced plans to hold a 250 mile stock car race instead that would take 100 laps scheduled for the same day. The race came to be named the Firecracker 250 because the race would be held on the United States’ Independence Day. William France Sr. announced on July 1 that the winner of the race would receive the Marshall Teague Memorial trophy, a trophy honoring and commemorating the life of Teague who had died in February.

The trophy had been presented by Teague’s daughter and widow. The inaugural race was held on July 4, 1959, at about midday to limit the possibility of afternoon interference from thunderstorms known to Florida, and to exploit the potential for competitors hooking up with relatives and friends for an afternoon of fun on the nearby beach.[6] Before the race preliminary activities took place including a Miss Dixie pageant, where twenty aspiring pageant winning hopefuls marched to showcase their bathing suits.With 12,900 spectators in attendance the race ran its scheduled 250 miles with no caution flags, and with a fifty-seven second lead over runner-up Joe Weatherly, Daytona Beach native Fireball Roberts won in dominating fashion leading 84 of 100 laps.Over the course of the next three years a couple of NASCAR’s top drivers would go on to win the Firecracker 250, including Jack Smith, David Pearson and a repeat victory in 1962 for Fireball Roberts

Daytona race to be held at night.A ten year contract, starting in 2008 between Atlanta-based Coca-Cola and International Speedway Corporation (ISC), made Coke the official soft drink, official sparkling beverage and official water for ten of ISC’s operated motorsports facilities and the Daytona 500. The company replaced Pepsi-Cola, a 19 year race sponsorship, to showcase Coke Zero as the race’s title brand through 2018.[3] The event is recently known for its close finishes, posting a (.154 ds) margin of victory in its last 21 races including the T-4th closest margin of victory in Sprint Cup history at (.005 ms); high speed high-density crashes under the lights, and a broad display of fireworks during post-race celebrations.
