For auto racing fans, it's the most exciting event of the year: the Daytona 500. Featuring the largest purse in NASCAR, this thrilling stock car race has been held since 1959 and is the season opener for drivers and their fans.
Cars tear around the track for 500 miles, testing their skills, stamina, and courage. Legends are born, dreams are dashed, and a sold-out crowd cheers the world's fastest cars to the finish line – and it all happens on February 26, 2017.
Feel the thrills of high-speed action when you experience the Daytona 500 in person. It's so much more than a race – it's an entire experience that celebrates the auto racing culture.
Find the perfect seat in the brand new stadium, which features epic views and dynamic sightlines no matter where you are. Stop by the UNOH Fanzone to peek inside the NASCAR garages, see your favorite drivers, and attend exclusive autograph sessions. Don't forget to arrive early for the Pre-Race show, which features musical performances and driver introductions.
When it's all over, return to your ultra-comfortable room or suite at our oceanfront hotel to relax and recount the day. Do you have questions about the race, or about other Daytona Beach events? Would you like to learn more about our hotel? Please contact us today.
