Gain access to the same track that will soon crown DAYTONA’s newest champion and through the tri-oval grass. Leave your mark by signing the start/finish line and experience the famous surface from a completely different perspective before grabbing a spot for driver introductions.
On the day of the DAYTONA 500, you’ll be able to watch multi-platinum selling singer Jake Owen perform in the DAYTONA 500 Pre-Race Show. Only those with UNOH Fanzone/Pre-Race Access are allowed on the track and tri-oval grass during pre-race festivities.
Gatorade Victory Lane
