Daytona SpeedwaySince 1959, Daytona International Speedway has been welcoming race fans to the hallowed grounds of “The World Center of Racing” for high-speed, heart-pounding racing action on the historic tall banks and famed Superstretch. Daytona International Speedway is a superspeedway inside Daytona Beach, Florida. It is a 2.5 mile (4 km) tri-egg-formed race track facility with a seats capacity of 168,000 viewers. It hosts races of motor vehicles of various kinds, including go-karts, motorcycles (on and off road), sports cars, modified pickup trucks, and stock cars. As you wander around the historic grounds of Daytona International Speedway, you’ll notice a few changes including the addition of the “Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame” outside The Daytona 500 Experience and a new addition to the Sprint FANDECK over the Sprint Cup Garages in the Sprint FANZONE. Some things change but mystic and aura of this storied Speedway remains the same. The facility also includes a 3.56 mile (5.7 km) road course and a 180-acre infield, including the 29 acre Lake Lloyd, which has hosted powerboat racing. The facility is also used for an annual spring car show and swap meet, and a Thanksgiving street rod meet, some of the largest of their kind, and various 5k foot races around the track, as there have been three different layouts.
