The 🏁 Daytona International Speedway is located right in downtown 🏖 Daytona Beach, Florida. Unlike many other race tracks in the nation, this very historic speedway is located right in the heart of the city.

It’s an incredible race track to see and watch a live race event at. This enormous 2.5 mile Super Speedway was built back in 1959 by Bill France, Sr. This man was also the founder of; NASCAR.

… hence the phrase – NASCAR 🙂

and photos. 😀  

Like any sports event, television simply cannot show what it’s truly like, to experience a live stock car race. There are a number of events to select from throughout the year, besides just stock car racing at Daytona Speedway.

Daytona International Speedway Track Tours

Welcome to Daytona Beach Sign Post

I highly recommend taking one of the track tours with your family when visiting the race track. The basic Speedway tour gives you a nice all around look at the track and facility, along with a number of other cool attractions.

The tour is very affordable and interesting for all ages.

” Take a ride through Daytona International Speedway’s infield, witness the 31 degree high banks and pass through NASCAR garages as you learn about the history of Daytona International Speedway. 

Travel along Pit Road and discover how NASCAR’s top drivers prep for the largest motor sports event of the year.”

The High Bank Thrills Of Racing At Daytona

We took the tour a few years back when we experienced the July night race at Daytona, and to actually get out and walk along the 31 degree banking is incredible!

For more track tour information, tickets and so much more, be sure to visit the official website that I have listed below for your convenience.

It is called the …

Daytona 500

It is the most prestigious stock car race held in the world! 

Their next Premier NASCAR race weekend event is usually held in the summer. This is the race our family
attended years ago, and it was outstanding. The summer race is held in the evening under the lights, when temperatures are cooler and comfortable for race fans and drivers.

Watching a race under the lights is spectacular! 😯

We attended the races in conjunction with a summer vacation to Disney World Florida. We traveled all the way from the west coast of Canada and memories of this holiday will last a lifetime!
