Motorsport returns to NBC on Saturday night in primetime with the Coke Zero Sugar 400 – the regular season finale — under the lights at Daytona International Speedway at 7pm ET.

NBC Sports will super-serve fans with more than 30 hours of motorsports programming this week, including an INDYCAR doubleheader from World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in Madison, Ill., on Saturday and Sunday at 3pm ET on NBCSN; NASCAR Xfinity Series racing from Daytona on Friday at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN; and Mecum Auctions from Kissimmee, Fla., starting tomorrow at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

With 13 drivers locked into the 16-driver Cup Series Playoffs, the last three Playoff spots are on the line in Saturday’s regular season finale, which is being held at Daytona for the first time.

Clint Bowyer, Matt DiBenedetto and William Byron currently hold those three spots, while drivers on the outside of the Playoff picture, including 7-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, are down to their last chance to make the post-season.

In addition, Kevin Harvick will be officially presented with the 2020 regular season championship, which he clinched during his seventh win of the season last Sunday at Dover International Speedway.
