Daytona International Speedway
Daytona International Speedway is the home of "The Great American Race" - the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event garners most of the attention - as well as the largest audience in motorsports - the approximately 500-acre motorsports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe. In addition to at least eight major weekends of racing activity, rarely a week goes by that the Speedway grounds are not used for events that include civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
Daytona International Speedway completed a $400 million renovation project that transformed the “World Center of Racing” into the world’s only motorsports stadium. Improvements included wider, more comfortable seats, five expanded and redesigned entrances, 40 escalators and upgraded amenities throughout the 11 football-field size neighborhoods. The stadium was awarded the SportsBusiness Journal’s prestigious Sports Business Award for 2016 Sports Facility of the Year.
Experience the 31-degree high banks for yourself on one of the daily tours offered at Daytona International Speedway. Walk in the footsteps of legends past and present as you climb atop the podium in Gatorade Victory Lane for a photo. See this year’s DAYTONA 500 champion car, left in the same condition as the day it captured the checkered flag.
Following your tour, stroll through the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, showcasing spectacular displays honoring all forms of motorsports: stock cars, sports cars, open-wheel, motorcycles, drag racing, land speed records, powerboating and aviation.
