Race fans will be able to virtually “Fill The 500” and claim a seat of their choice for the 63rd running of The Great American Race.

The Daytona 500 Fancam is back for the 63rd running of The Great American Race on Sunday (2:30 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

To add a personal cutout, visitĀ Daytona500.com/FillThe500. Fans will then be able to tag themselves and share the post on Facebook, Twitter and email.

The fun doesn‘t stop there. Surprise guests — perhaps your favorite driver? — will be scattered throughout the stands. There will also be hidden messages for fans to discoverĀ and a scavenger hunt where YOU could win a pair of tickets to the 2022 DAYTONA 500.

With limited fans allowed for the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season opener due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Daytona International Speedway is doing all it can to engage with those who cannot attend the race and make it feel as if they were a part of the crown-jewel event.
