DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The UNOH Battle At The Beach, a short-track event held for the first time earlier this year featuring NASCAR’s regional and touring series, will return to Daytona International Speedway during Budweiser Speedweeks 2014 on Tuesday, Feb. 18.
The action-packed day of practice, qualifying and racing will be headlined by two 150-lap events with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
For competitors in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, the 150-lap race will be a championship points event while it will be a non-points 150-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
“The UNOH Battle At The Beach is a great opportunity for short track racers from around the country to compete on racing’s biggest stage,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “We’re looking forward to some intense competition with two exciting main events.”
In last year’s inaugural UNOH Battle At The Beach NASCAR K&N Pro Series race, Cameron Hayley came from behind during a green-white-checkered finish to capture the victory. In the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race, NASCAR veteran Steve Park finally earned his first Daytona victory.
Daytona International Speedway has reached an agreement with a number of area hotels to secure special room rates during the UNOH Battle At The Beach to make it more affordable for racers and fans to attend the UNOH Battle At The Beach.
