Florida Georgia Line Pre-Race Show
Award-winning country music duo Florida Georgia Line will perform the DAYTONA 500 Pre-Race Show prior to the start of the 58th annual DAYTONA 500! All race fans who purchase Sprint FANZONE/Pre-Race access for the DAYTONA 500 will be able to view Florida Georgia Line’s DAYTONA 500 Pre-Race Show, as well as driver introductions, from the grass tri-oval area.
Sprint FANZONE is perfect for all ages as kids will be entertained for hours climbing the rock wall, getting their faces painted, or even playing around in the bounce house. Don’t forget – kids 12 and under are FREE inside Sprint FANZONE throughout Speedweeks.
FPL Solar Patio
DIS has partnered with Florida Power and Light to install solar panels on canopy structures in the Sprint FANZONE, known as FPL Solar Patio, which will offer areas of shade for race fans while generating zero-emissions energy.
This is a DAYTONA tradition unlike any other in all of sports. Spend pre-race walking the trioval, exploring the 18-degree frontstretch banking for yourself. Take a picture on the legendary track before signing the start/finish line.
Fanatics Infield Superstore
Swing by the Fanatics Infield Superstore to show your support for your favorite driver. We have all of your race day needs covered all weekend long with exclusive hats, shirts, flags and more.
Gatorade Victory Lane
Take an opportunity to head over to Gatorade Victory Lane before the race. Stand in the footsteps of countless legends while taking your picture with the Harley J. Earl DAYTONA 500 trophy.
Looking to fill out that autograph collection with your favorite driver? Pack your sharpie because this is the place to do it. On Friday, February 12 the ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards will hold an All-Access & Autograph Session in Sprint FANZONE from 12:30 pm – 2 pm. On the following Friday, February 19, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will hold an autograph session in the FPL Solar Patio in Sprint FANZONE from 3 pm – 3:45 pm.
On select days during Speedweeks, free 30-minute garage tours will be given for 15 guests at a time. Tours are not guaranteed with your Sprint FANZONE wristband. Once you enter Sprint FANZONE, head over to the FPL Solar Patio to see if there are any available tours left. It’s first-come, first-serve and your entire party must be present for sign ups, so if you want a chance to take a tour, make this a top priority. Once again, these aren’t available every day and the scheduling depends on the on-track schedule, which can vary. Be sure to check out the schedule for the day when you first arrive at Sprint FANZONE. It is well worth it as the tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at the Sprint Cup garages. You may even be run into your favorite driver or their car.
Alert Today Florida Main Stage
This is the entertainment hub of Sprint FANZONE. If you’re looking to relax, grab some food and drinks from Budweiser Bistro and grab a seat for the exciting lineup of entertainment on the Alert Today Florida Main Stage. In addition to several performances by live bands, make sure you’re on-hand for a chance to see your favorite driver take the stage and answer questions on a wide range of topics. Past guests include Joey Logano, Trevor Bayne, Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Casey Mears.
