Tune into WNDB in Daytona Beach for the MRN broadcast. Hearing the action will help you to figure out who is driving in what cars and how to distinguish between classes. In addition, download the IMSA app for access live timing and scoring. Twitter is another great place to get up to the minute information from the speedway, teams and drivers.
Dress in Layers
Weather is always great for the 24; however, since you’re here for 24 hours the weather does fluctuate a bit throughout the day and night. Expect temperatures to move anywhere between the low-50’s and low-70’s. Recommendations are to bring clothing that can be easily removed or added in order to keep you comfortable during any time of day.
While you will be very close to the racing actions and certainly don’t need them, a pair of binoculars will come in handy if you want to focus on a specific group of drivers on a certain part of the 3.56-mile course. As the sun sets, you’ll be able to use the binoculars to keep tabs on race positions via the LED panels on the front and sides of each car.
With so much to do and so much to see a comfortable pair of shoes will be your best friend for this event.
If you’re sitting in the front few rows, it’s a good bet that things will get rather noisy. Bring along a pair of ear plugs so you can enjoy the race at a comfortable decibel level.
Even in January, this is the Sunshine State. Sitting out and watching racing all day will definitely attract some rays and while you want a nice tan, make sure you keep your skin protected.
Sharpie and Memorabilia
You’ll have a chance to meet all of your favorite drivers and collect signatures in a giant autograph session held in the Sprint FANZONE. Bring anything and everything you’d like to get signed as this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
