Planning on coming by RV? Great! The Geico Campground offers an incredible set up for tailgaters and race fans who are there for the action. With the length of the Rolex 24, this is a great option for those traveling with kids or big groups, but keep in mind it fills up fast.

Daytona 500

If you can’t make it to the Rolex 24, there is always the 2018 Daytona 500! Spanning over 6 decades, this event has brought us some of the best moments and wins in Nascar history. If you want to boost your experience, don’t forget about the UNOH Fanzone and Pre-Race Extravaganza.

By adding on either the Fanzone or Extravaganza tickets, you and your group will be able to get up close and personal with not only the cars, but the famous drivers who lead them. Keep in mind that the Daytona 500 has sold out the past two years, so the earlier you reserve your tickets and RV spot at the Geico Campground, the better.
