Regarded as the most prestigious race in the NASCAR series, the Daytona 500 is also the race with the biggest payout. The race is expected to kick off at Daytona International Speedway in Florida on February 17th and in keeping with the exclusive theme of the event, private jet charters to the 2019 Daytona 500 are the only way to travel there.
The race is 500 miles in its entirety and as opposed to other sporting events where the first in the championship series is generally played at the end of the season, the 500 is at the start. Held annually at the International Motor Speedway in Daytona Beach, it is the first of the two cup races held there, the other being the Coke Zero 400 respectively. The race is lapped as follows with the first and second stage each consisting of 60 each and the final stage being 80 laps and 200 cumulatively.
Formerly known as the Inaugural 500 Mile International Sweepstakes, the initial race was run in 1959. Since then, its name has gone through several transitions and variations like the Daytona 500 by STP, Daytona 500 by Dodge, and ultimately settling on the Daytona 500 since 1961 and up into its current configuration. The driver with the most wins is Richard Petty with 7, with Petty Enterprises as the most winningest team.
The fact that the race is in Florida isn’t lost on racegoers who all across the country are shivering in frigid temps. The sunny and temperate climate attributed to the Atlantic coast’s Daytona beach sets an ideal and warm tone to the start of the NASCAR series. Recently, the track underwent renovations to the tune of 400 million dollars in efforts to improve upon its amenities and attract younger race fans. The renovations include adding video screens and integrating social media technologies.
Attempts to amp up the overall encounter via the inclusion of a wide-open plaza featuring many sponsored entry portals with escalators and elevators designed to simulate the NASCAR experience.
Newly improved impressive ergonomically designed seating makes the whole endeavor next level amazing.
