Every year, one of NASCAR’s most prestigious races is held just a two-hour drive from Orlando – the Daytona 500.
That’s a lot of left turns.
This year’s event takes place on February 20, 2011, and not only will it bring in thousands of NASCAR fans to Central Florida, but it will be broadcast on the Fox Network to millions of viewers. It’s also going to be the first Daytona 500 to race on the newly repaved track.
It is the culmination of Speed Weeks that includes today’s Budweiser Shootout, and in between now and next Sunday’s big race, there are smaller races, driver meet-and-greets, live music, and more.
Individual tickets range from $55 to $189, with packages starting at $294 and going up to $1885. There is also a pre-show concert with country superstar Brad Paisley with VIP tickets (including a Daytona 500 ticket, Sprint FANZONE/Pre-Race access and VIP area access) going for $154.
For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit the official website of the Daytona 500.
