DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Daytona International Speedway has joined forces with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) in putting together a special ticket package that will deliver the excitement of NASCAR’s most prestigious race – the Daytona 500 – as well as benefit an important cause.

The NFFF ticket package, which starts at $119 for adults and $79 for children 12 and under, includes a race ticket to the 53rd annual Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday, Feb. 20, admission to the Star and Shield FIRE STATION 500 hospitality tent, and commemorative T-shirt.

A portion of the proceeds from each NFFF ticket package purchase will be donated to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization created by the United States Congress to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, NFFF has developed and expanded programs to honor fallen fire heroes and assist their families and co-workers.

“This special ticket offer is a great opportunity for race fans to witness both the excitement and pageantry of NASCAR’s signature event as well as assist a worthy initiative,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “We’re proud to assist and support the NFFF’s mission of honoring America’s fallen firefighters and providing resources to assist their survivors.”

“The NFFF is excited to be collaborating with Daytona International Speedway in creating a firefighter appreciation event at the Daytona 500,” said Chief Ron Siarnicki, Executive Director for the NFFF. “Not only is this event a fundraiser to support families of our nation’s fallen firefighters, but a great way to say thank you for the service our first responders provide to our communities. The NFFF is very appreciative of the fact that Daytona International Speedway is truly interested in showing its support of the fire service community.”
