“Great tour even if youndon't like NASCAR”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We took the 30 minute Speedway Tour. We had one senior, two toddlers and two regular adult admissions. Kids were free! Total ticket cost was $48.00 (no disc offered on this tour). The tour started on time. They picked us up in front of the main building and drove us thru tunnel 1 to the infield. This place is huge! As we drove, the tour was given in a mix of live and prerecorded voices. The driver took us to the pit area. It was a short walk from the tour vehicle to the pit. Some people were on the track participating in the Richard Petty experience so we were able to see cars on the track. We all loved it. We stayed in the pit area about ten minutes. It went by fast. Then we got back in the tour vehicle and drove back out of the track and around to the back of the main building to view the short (3min?) film on the track history. After that, you leave the theater (at this point they take your picture) and enter the showroom where the car of the current year winner is kept. From there you pass through the gift shop and out. Be aware on the way out, they will stop you and give you the printed pictures. And ask you to carry them to the next booth where you can buy them or drop them off. Packages run from $20 - $30. This was a good tour. Short and sweet. Also, important to mentions that on our tour there was someone in a wheelchair. You could bring a stroller, too. And not a lot of walking so it's good for small children and seniors. It moved quick enough that the kids did not get bored! For the little kids, they did have die cast metal cars (matchbox size) for some of the drivers in the gift shop for $7.00. The kids loved them!

“even for non- race car fans”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We went here by accident really! We were heading for the Daytona beaches but passed the speedway on the way so of course had to stop by and have a look. They have 2 tours available, All access or speedway. We took the all access tour, which took in the vip areas, the track, race car driver meeting room and the winners area-in all about 1 hour 3/4. I have to admit, for a non race car fan, it was a good tour and not outrageously expensive-children under 6 are free, adults $23. The tram driver/tour host was very informative and entertaining, there was a bit of a thrill driving around the race track, telling the kids that the films Turbo and Cars (I'm sure) were based on this track! I'll be quite happy to tune into the Daytona 500 in February, just so I can say "I've been there!"

“A must see”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We not only did a 90 minute tour of the facility, which was very good, but my husband did a drive day here too. Everything is run with real enthusiasm.
Our guide was really informative about the track and was able to answer most questions that we posed (and I ask a lot of questions!) We saw cool parts of the track like the drivers briefing room and had our photo taken on Victory Lane. This was a real highlight. The weather was hot, and our guide made sure that we were in the shade which was a really nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyable and we hope to come back for the big race one day.

“Glad we went”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We decided to go here because it was not good beach weather. I am not a race car fan and have never been to a race or racetrack.The guys are race fans but never done a track tour before. It was very enjoyable. Our tram driver was Mike, I believe and he was very personable and gave us plenty of information. The banking was impressive and I could not believe cars can actually drive on it.They take photos at 2 different places and you can purchase them if you want. They did offer to take a picture with our own camera at Victory Lane, which I thought was very nice..Our tour was about 45 minutes and a good value for our 16.00 ticket price.

“Wow......A LONG, LONG, LONG and Boring tour”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I cannot believe we spend over hours looking at ......not much. We started on the bus and went to the "archives"...gotta tell ya, that was like watching paint dry. Then we rode around and looked at not much more. Seeing the high banks, up close, was amazing...remember we saw it from a bus, and not actually on the track, except at the very bottom. This tour is clearly designed to fill some time. It could have been done in 1 hour and skip the archives.
