Be sure to check out these tips before leaving your driveway for the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA weekend.
Parking for the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA is easy. You can find all the official parking info and maps here, but there are a few things that are helpful to know. Parking options are terrific for this event as none of the options, whether in the infield or right outside the stadium, require much travel time.
Traffic and Peak Times
Thursday and Friday are a bit unpredictable, but in general there will be less traffic. Saturday is a different story. This year the race will start at 2:30 PM. People like to make a day of it, so there will be traffic early, but it will really ramp up around 10:00 AM, staying busy until race time. Once the race starts, traffic is constant until it gets dark. On Sunday, traffic eases up throughout the morning until the race ends.
This option makes for the easiest access to the race as you are within easy walking distance of all the exciting action. Parking passes are required to park in the infield and are sold out at this time. If you do have an infield pass, make sure you stick to your designated areas. There will be ample signage and, if you get turned around, there will be several helpful parking attendants that can help point you in the right direction.
If you don’t have an infield parking pass, you’ll need to park outside of the stadium. Free parking for this event is available in a very limited number in Lot 2. There are several closer paid options, including Lot 5, located just outside Turn 4.
DAYTONA provides guests with ADA needs with multiple free parking options. General free daily parking will be in the Lots 4 and 5, located outside of Turn 4.
Trams & Infield Shuttle Buses
Once at DAYTONA, a tram stop is conveniently located at the Lot 1 Tram Plaza to make moving around the Speedway as easy as possible. If you’re headed to the infield, keep an eye out for the Infield Fan Shuttle which can help you move around the infield. The tram and shuttle routes are marked on the event maps in yellow and blue, respectively.
