1. Start/Finish Line
Perhaps the most famous checkered-line in all of racing, DAYTONA's start-finish provides you with terrific views of the cars as they race for home.
2. FANZONE FanDeck
A great place to watch the race is from atop the FANZONE FanDeck, which overlook all of the garages. In addition to an insider birds-eye view of garage activity, you’re in a great location to enjoy frontstretch track action.
3. International Horseshoe
This famous turn has been a staple of DAYTONA's 3.56-mile road course since its inception. With a setup of infield bleachers, you can watch much of the early passing as drivers try to navigate the course’s first hairpin turn.
4. Carousel Turn
Following the International Horseshoe, this turn begins with a tight hairpin turns and ends with drivers having to negotiate a sharp left turn in order to get back on the high banks. You can also find plentiful bleacher seating in this part of the infield.
5. Ferris Wheel
At 150-feet, the highest Ferris Wheel on the East Coast gives you unmatched views of the on-track action. You’ll have a beautiful 360-degree view of the entire track and will be able to see the Atlantic Ocean from your high perch.
6. Pit Road Patio
Be in the heart of the action! This unique viewpoint is offered as a two-day admission package overlooking pit road and DAYTONA's frontstretch. Garage access, food and beverages on Saturday, giveaways and infield parking are included.
7. Lake Lloyd
Nestled amid the high-banked turns and perpetual infield activities sits 29-acre Lake Lloyd. Grab some food at the concessions and take it out to Lake Lloyd to sit shore side and watch the cars blur over the horizon of the lake. The intensity of the race mixed with the placid atmosphere of the water surely makes for an unique combination unlike anything else in motorsports.
8. Sprint FANZONE
By walking up to the gates in the Sprint FANZONE you are located a mere 10-15 feet behind the pits. Observe as teams fight fatigue in order work together to perform mechanical miracles on cars that need to race for 24 consecutive hours. This is the spot where you’re right on top of the action. You can hear the growl of the engines, see the track kick up rubber from the tires and feel the energy of race teams going all out for the win.
9. The Kink
The infield kink is the part of the Daytona International Speedway course that connects the two horseshoe turns. As a driver exits the International horseshoe turn, the asphalt makes a slight kink to the left before the west horseshoe turn. Grab a spot on the infield grandstands and watch cars attempt bold passes as the infield course begins.
10. Stadium Seating
