Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida announces the running of the Daytona 500 each year. Since 1959, the Daytona 500 has been the most prestigious race with the highest stakes; and the most sought after ring to grab in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. From the driver’s standpoint, the Daytona 500 offers the largest payday in all of motor sports, dwarfing the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400 as well. Prize money in the millions is not uncommon. To see this excitement, purchase tickets to Daytona 500 early.
Aside from the richest pay outs, the biggest motivation for the drivers in winning the ultimate race is the fame and fortune necessary for acquiring great sponsorship. Many perks are bestowed on the winner, such as having their hands, right foot and signature immortalized in the cement in Daytona’s Championship Walk of Fame. Each winner’s car stands on display for a year at Daytona and the winner will go on a media tour of many cities, including New York and Los Angeles. Finally the driver will also attend TV interviews on several popular shows.
The Daytona 500 offers the most exciting racing experience to the fans of any racetrack. The drivers, given the gravity of the situation, feel compelled to go for broke in order to win the biggest and most sought after race of the year. Playing it safe is not in the drivers’ vocabularies at Daytona, given the stakes. This attitude never fails to make the 500 the most exciting race in the country.
There are many attractions and activities for the entire family. Aside from the pre-race activities, the Fanzone is a must see. When you purchase Daytona 500 tickets, purchase your tickets for the Fanzone at the same time. Located in the infield behind the entrance to pit row, it offers an up close and personal look at the race teams and their personnel as well as many other attractions. Spectators may exit the grandstand area and cross the racetrack to the Fanzone. There, spectators will find a Bistro offering food and drink as well as a seating area with live entertainment. The news media stage is next to the Bistro where spectators can watch their favorite personalities broadcasting the 500 on live networks.
Daytona 500 race paraphernalia and clothing, as well as other items are offered in the tent to the rear of the Bistro. More interesting is the opportunity to watch the race teams work on their cars in the garage through windows. A deck above the garages allows viewing directly over pit row.
