Daytona International Speedway Tours
For the race fans, the Daytona International Speedway offers various tours, going from a Speedway Tour to a VIP Tour.
The Speedway Tour gives sport fans a 30-minute look behind the scenes, where you will take a ride through the infield, pass the 31 degrees banks, visit the NASCAR garages and pass through Pit Road.
All Access Tour
The All Access Tour is a 90 minute privately guided tour, which takes the race fan to the historical areas of the Daytona International Speedway. The visitor will see the infield, pit road and will be taken around the track. Furthermore, the tour will give information about the 400-million dollar Daytona Rising Project, a big renovation of the Daytona International Speedway accommodation.
Other highlights of the All Access Tour are the NASCAR Sprint Cup garages, Tech Inspection, the Drivers’ Room, the Victory Lane and a close look at the Daytona 500 Champion Car.
During the VIP Tour, which will last approximately 180 minutes, you will see everything of the All Access Tour, but you will also see the Daytona 500 President’s Club Row and you are able to explore the Speedway archives, which is one of the largest collections of memorabilia, trophies and race cars in the world.
There are no advanced sales for the Speedway Tour and the All Access Tour, but it is recommended to reserve in advance for the VIP Tour, since there is a limited availability.
