As the year winds down and many of us are getting ready for the holidays, some of us are looking forward to the start of race season at Daytona International Speedway. The 480 acre track is a staple in NASCAR, and is why thousands travel each year to take part in the variety of events.
2016 will mark the unveiling of the new Daytona International Speedway (Daytona Rising). The $400 million redevelopment phase has fans gearing up for a new season in racing where they can look forward to more of the historic events they love, in the Daytona Speedway they’ve been waiting for. So what do fans have to look forward too in the new stadium? In addition to solar powered areas and escalators that bring you to various sections of the venue, the wider and more comfortable seats and twice as many bathrooms and concessions makes for a relaxing visit that will lesson the time fans stand in line. This means more time spent enjoying the races!
Upcoming Races & Events at Daytona International Speedway
In addition to this being the 58th year of the Daytona 500, this particular race will be the official launch for fans get to experience the new venue in all of its’ glory. Along with the excitement of the Daytona Rising, race fans will also enjoy a few pre-race activities including a musical performance by country music stars Florida Georgia Line.
If you are a NASCAR and country fan, then we suggest purchasing your Sprint Fanzone tickets for pre-race access that will include a spot for the show and driver introductions in a private area. If there is one Daytona event you want to check out this year during your RV travels, then this is it.
Celebrating it’s 54th year, the Rolex 24 is another race event that is not to be missed. The 24-hour race experience is like nothing else and serves as the kick-off for the 2016 IMSA Weather Tech Sports Car Championship season. This is the race that is always unpredictable and draws in a multitude of race fans.
Since the event is a relentless 24-hour competition, traveling by RV is the top choice, with the ability to rest in the comforts of a bed while still being close to the action and is no wonder why so many individuals and groups choose to camp out in the Geico Campground for this particular race.
Although Daytona International Speedway is known as the “World Center of Racing” it is also the location for Country Fest 500. Even though there will be no racing happening during this time, there is the opportunity to see some of Country’s top music acts including Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson and 40+ more. In addition to the incredible music line up, you can enjoy and even camp out on the infield of the track. The event is a perfect combination of country and race, as individuals will be able to roam the infamous tracks and participate in meet and greets throughout the pit road and garages that typically hold NASCAR’s top contenders.
