DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2007) - Building on the positive response from fans to last year's testing session, Daytona International Speedway will once again offer fans a close up preview of what to expect in January at the Grand American testing session scheduled at "The World Center of Racing" in November.
Fans with 2008 Rolex 24 At Daytona tickets will be admitted free to the testing session scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14 (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and Thursday, Nov. 15 (9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m). Ticketholders must check in both days at the Guest Services desk inside the Daytona 500 Experience to receive a tram coupon valid to get them to the infield.
Fans without 2008 Rolex 24 tickets can purchase $10 tram ride admissions sold at the Daytona 500 Experience Guest Services desk. The DIS ticket office will be open for those wishing to purchase tickets to the Rolex 24 At Daytona or any other DIS event. In addition, Oldfield grandstands will be open for viewing outside the track with access through the Daytona 500 Experience.
"What a great opportunity to see a collection of some of the best drivers in the world, all in one place," said Speedway President Robin Braig. "Last year, fans told us how much they enjoyed watching testing from the infield and we're happy to provide this opportunity to them once again."
Guests taking advantage of this offer will be dropped off at the entrance to Sprint FANZONE and will have access to such places as the Goodyear Legends of Daytona area and the Budweiser Bistro. Tickets for the Rolex 24 At Daytona, which is scheduled for Jan. 26-27, 2008, are available online at http://www.racetickets.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
