With the "Daytona Rising" project, you will not see Daytona as it has always been. They have completely torn out/down all of the original seating and pretty much the entire front stretch grandstands. The racing surface will be the same as always. I wish I could give you some tips, but what I knew is gone. A couple of things that will not change. Get your seats as high up in the grandstand as possible, always a better view of the track. Wear ear plugs. Stock cars are LOUD and can damage hearing! Have a GREAT time!

Well dang. You will get there! The improvements seem
to have made it a seriously fun destination point to look
forward to.

I went a few weeks ago for the 24 hours, it is a seriously impressive venue.

I watched the live streaming of the 24hrs, it does look an impressive venue. Me and a buddie are determined to get there next year, already looking at our options...

Hearing or seeing the word DANG always makes me smile. I stayed with a friend in Texas a few years back and that was a word I heard all the time...

It's definitely one of the easiest and cheapest to do, probably more so with the 24 hours. Obviously I can't comment on the 500 but I'd love to do that one day too.

Would like to do the 24hr one day, but the 500 has to be first. Yes a few companies do good deals from the UK for Daytona, so we are weighting up our options..
