Team Public Relations Representatives
Do not fill out the media application form. Team public relations representatives must have either a hard card or must obtain a credential through the sanctioning body. They can request an event sticker and parking pass by sending a request on company letterhead by mail, email or fax. The request should include name, company, team they are representing, racing series and an address to mail sticker and parking pass.
Requests should be sent to email@example.com or fax to (386) 681-6798 or mail to 1801 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114. These event stickers and parking passes are for working PR representatives and not marketing managers or other team personnel.
How To Apply
Annual Hard Cards
Journalists who posses an Annual Hard Card issued by the respective sanctioning bodies and are on assignment to cover the event are required to submit an application to reserve seats in the media facilities and parking. A parking pass and media facility access sticker will be mailed if time allows, otherwise it will be held for pick up at the Speedway Credential Office on Dunn Avenue.
Some sanctioning bodies issue Annual Hard Cards to photographers, which only provide access to the pits and garage area. It does not provide access to media areas or restricted photo areas, nor does it secure event parking. Daytona International Speedway will provide credentials with appropriate access and parking only to those photographers who are on assignment from an accredited media outlet for the purpose of providing timely coverage of the event.
Please coordinate credential requirements and parking needs with the editorial side of your news organization. Separate requests cannot be accomodated.
For testing, because of the Holidays, requests must be received for Rolex 24 testing no later than December 18.
