The speedway has reopened for tours. You must get your tickets onsite for the basic tour but you can order VIP tickets online in advance. The basic tours sell out fast!! We arrived by 9:30 and the earliest tour we could get was 11:30. By 10:00 tours for the entire day were sold out so I strongly suggest going early. There is a decent museum you can visit while you wait and admission is free with the purchase of a tour ticket. You can also get a variety of souvenirs at the gift shop. The tour takes you through the tunnel to the track where you see pit row, cars running on the track, the lake, campground and much more. During a stop you get to check out the grandstand seats where you get a great view of the track and all that is happening there. This tour is a must do for racing fans.

First visit to FL we did the tour with two young children. Absolutely worth it. Our 9 year old is really into racing. We visited FL again in perfect timing for the Coke Zero 400 race. First, the seats were section 111 row 8. The section was perfect right after turn 4 and two of the wrecks happened right in front of us because that is such a fast important turn. If the seats were available I would have gone higher than row 8 to see across the field to the other side. Sound decibels are very high so being ear protection. Most importantly I had read reviews recommending the radio scanner for kids. My son was able to listen to his favorite racer Joey Logano talk through the entire race and it also gave him good ear protection. I assumed I would rent on site the day of the race. Rent ahead of time! A few days before the race a representative from the track called me to upsell some of the packages etc. He asked me if I had any questions and I asked where to get the scanner. He said I could prepay $60 with him or $80 on-site. I reserved with him and I am so glad I did! They sold out of scanners! Only those with reservations could get one! So thankful that man called. My NASCAR angel. I would have had a very disappointed little boy. He had an amazing time and a great experience.

Took a side trip on our way to Orlando. Where not disappointed.. As big NASCAR fans it was Awesome got to go into the stands drive into the Infield and where able to snap a Photo on Victory lane Ticket price includes the hall of fame museum .where able to book tickets as we where driving on our way through. Did not get to go on track as they where doing the racing experience. Which was good and bad got to see cars race by and got some cool pictures but would have loved to get on the track you are in a open tram and only thing they cancel for is Lighting so rain or shine they go. Our driver was Awesome . Race fan or not would highly recommend

I’m going to be honest, I had low expectations for this one, thought when the tour was so affordable it would be a 20 min walk around of some of the basics. I was entirely wrong. This tour was an hour on one of the trams, visiting and stopping at the places around and on the track. Was awesome to be allowed on the track and into some of the garages and the in field. This engaging tour was followed up by a free trip to the museum, as a non museum person myself I thought I’d skip this one but ended up getting sucked in by the exhibits and ended up spending almost another hour in there as well. Definitely worth the trip. Hope I’ll be back to see a race there soon!

If you’re in Daytona, there is really no where else you can’t not go. In other words, GO TO THE TRACK! We decided to to pass on the tour since their was IMSA racing while we were there. It was $15/person and that let us drive through the tunnel, into the infield, and park right next to the track and watch racing. We saw the practice session, but our ticket would have allowed us to see the qualifier race too. It was worth it to see such an iconic track, and to actually see cars turning laps…what a cool thing! The staff is also very friendly! We really enjoyed our time at the track!!!

Although we do not follow the sport of racing, we still enjoyed our 90 minute narrated All-Access bus tour. Afterward, we stopped at the new Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in the DIS Ticket and Tours Building, which has (per their website) "displays honoring all forms of motorsports: Stock Cars, Sports Cars, Open-Wheel, Motorcycles, Drag Racing, Land Speed Records, Powerboating and Aviation." Heads up that, as each tour time has limited capacity, they encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance to secure the date & time that you'd like. We did book our tour ahead of time. Glad we stopped!

We attended the Daytona 500 and overall, it was a very memorable day. But super frustrating. Now we certainly understand the weather couldn’t be controlled, and we understand that security was heightened because of the president being there. What we were most disappointed by was that because we had Fan Zone tickets, we were told to take a shuttle to the infield, then put in a line for an hour, then when we could finally see the end of the line, we were put in another line. After 2.5 hours in line, we made it into the Fan Zone only to find out that the drivers were all done with their autograph sessions, the whole reason we spent an extra $99 per person to get in there. A total waste. And we were there very early. Then, we went across the track to go to our seats only to find out that we could have accessed the Fan Zone that way and since we were there early, it would have taken only a few minutes. We were given terrible information multiple times by track employees who should have known better. We really should get that money back. And we won’t even talk about how it took another 1.5 hours to get out of Lot 7. They needed parking attendants. Half our party came back the next day and had a fantastic time. Might never come back but managed to redeem this visit with Monday’s race.

We visited in November, and there was a 24 hours race on the weekend we visited. We heard the cars racing from outside in the hotel we stayed in near by, it was fustrating to not be allowed in, but hear it all happening inside. The tour, we could not go on the track itself as it was in use, but we went up into the stands and heard the roar of the cars instead, it was thunderious and so loud and just amazing! Made me wish I could return for the Daytona 500! feel the atmosphere, be part of the crowd.

We booked a tour that included photos, the Victory lane one was good, but that was about it for us really, but as tourists, we decided to do it all while we was there.

The day was wet and cold when we went, but it did not effect the fun for us, but being Brits we probably enjoyed it more than most, we don't get that type of racing much at home, even the F1 cars are quiet now...BOOOOOOOO! Loved the vibes this place gave off and the noise it makes. Most parts where closed during our visit, but I imagine its amazing when the 500 is on!

The tour is worth doing if your there, you really get to enjoy the stadium that way.

Prices are not cheap for the shop at the end, expect to pay around $30+ for any T-Shirts, and $50+ for other wears, nothing comes cheap, but they are very nice quality goods.

I went on the 90 minute all access tour which took us to the winner's circle and the media area as well as taking us into the stands and even showing how the start/end line of the Daytona 500 extends out of the raceway into the parking area. We couldn't drive on the track that day since ARCA drivers were practicing drafting. It was neat to see them driving around the track. After the tour, your ticket includes entrance into the racing museum which is well worth a visit. The gift shop has everything from T-shirts to children's onesies and die-cast collectible cars.

I went to my first Daytona 500 when it was still on the beach. Who would have ever imagined the possibility of a facility like it has become. The stands are awesome in size and internal facilities. There must have been 50 or more food vendors and restaurants on the grounds, plus another 50 serving various drinks, appetizers, you name it. Beginning on Thursday before the Rolex 24, wandering the garages, watching the teams at work, even sitting in an occasional car, provide a photographers delight. Moving around the stands, the infield stands, provide a number of perfect places to view the action. The vehicle displays, racing merchandise, and widely available benches to rest are great. The ADA service is superb, though admittedly, in a venue as large as this, there is still a lot of walking involved unless patience is one of your virtues. On top of that, the 4 day experience of the Rolex has to be the best value in motor sports. Where else can you spend 4 days watching racing and practice action for less than $150 including parking. This should be a bucket list item for every automotive fan.
