16th – 22nd February 2022
NASCAR’s Daytona 500 is a new addition to Travel Destinations’ portfolio of events for 2022. It is headline event on the bucket list of many motorsport fans, as it encapsulates all the pomp and circumstance of a major American race event event, but with a unique culture of its own.
Run annually since 1959, it’s a spectacle with a lot of history behind it held in a hugely significant area. Daytona Beach is far more than just a destination for anyone craving sun, sea and sand; it’s the ‘birthplace of stock car racing’ and as such is a mecca for the sport in the USA.
The fans that attend and the locals treat this event as the highlight of the year. It’s a real spectacle of 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 sights and sounds are almost indescribable, especially from the top of the speedway grandstand, which features a full panoramic view of the entire circuit.
At the 2022 edition of the race, fans will also get a first taste of the brand new Next Generation NASCARs from Chevrolet, Toyota and Ford, which promise to create closer racing than ever before.
