Daytona 500

NASCAR’s Daytona 500 might just be the most ‘American’ motorsport event. The Indy 500 may draw a slightly bigger crowd and have a more broad international appeal, but the Daytona 500 has a culture of its own that should make it a headliner at the top of anyone’s motorsport bucket list.

Run annually since 1959, it’s a spectacle with a lot of history behind it held in a place that is hugely significant area for motorsport fans, as Daytona Beach is the birthplace of stock car racing and as such is a mecca for motorsport in the USA.

The fans that attend and the locals treat this event as the highlight of the year. It’s a real spectacle or speed and sound on track mixed with fan-facing activities in the build up to the race such as concerts, autograph sessions and historic racing car displays off track. The 500 is far more than just a race…

Nevertheless, the racing itself is undoubtedly the highlight, with the 40+ NASCARs taking to the oval in all its glory. Daytona is a restrictor-plate race on the flat-out super-speedway, so the cars race in packs, at full speed for the duration. This means plenty of overtaking and thrills and spills. The view from the grandstand is astonishing too, featuring a full panoramic view of the entire circuit.
