Last time was at Daytona International Speedway was in the spring of 1991, and watched the Daytona 500. If fact that was the last time I was in Daytona. I had a day the was completely open waiting on SpaceX launch, and I came across this VIP Tour. Doubted with short notice I could get on this VIP tour, BUT they had ONE seat left and I took it 👍. Great decision, if your a race fan you would really enjoy this, lots of behind the scenes stuff, you would never see.
Also you will see some memorial photos from the beach at Daytona, long story there. But when I raced snowmobiles I always had the #64 and that was to honor Aaron Creamer, young man who lost his life flat track racing. 🙏 What a great kid….
Enjoy the photos below.

Have your photo taken in Gatorade Victory Lane, then travel to get a look inside the facility, as you hop onto one of the 17 elevators and 40 escalators and are transported up into the frontstretch seating for a stunning view of the trioval and infield, capped off by a visit in the tower above to the Houston Lawing Press Box overlooking it all.
