Daytona International Speedway is encouraging race fans to help ensure that everyone in the Central Florida community is able to enjoy a holiday meal by offering a special track tour promotion to guests at the "World Center of Racing" who donate canned food items.
From Nov. 16 – Dec. 7, fans who bring in four or more canned goods to the Guest Services counter in the Daytona International Speedway Ticket and Tours Building will receive a free 30-minute Speedway Tour (limit one tour ticket per donor).
In addition, on Monday, Dec. 7, from 6 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., WESH Ch. 2, the Orlando NBC television affiliate, will commence their live events at DIS for the 30th annual "Share Your Christmas" food drive; the Speedway will be the first of five stops in the Central Florida area. All non-perishable food gathered from the food drive will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank who provides food and basic-need items to more than 500 grass roots organizations in Central Florida.
For fans participating in the track tour promotion, the 30-minute Speedway Tour runs daily at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 4 p.m. and allows fans to view the garage area, pit road, and the world-famous 31-degree high banks. The tour also stops at Gatorade Victory Lane, track activities permitting, and at the 2015 DAYTONA 500 championship car display.
