“Spend the July 4th holiday weekend with us at Daytona. This is the only restrictor plate night race on the NASCAR schedule, and it's amazing to see these Sprint Cup cars racing under the lights here in Daytona Beach."
The travel time from the hotel to Daytona International Speedway is approximately 40 min via luxury motor coach, even in race traffic. We choose to stay on the north side of Orlando so our guests may take advantage of flights into either Orlando International Airport (MCO) or Sanford International Airport (SFB). Sanford is usually a little less busy and easier in terms of traffic than Orlando International Airport.
Of course Daytona is one of my favorite race tracks. History has been made here, and every race fan should visit this track at least once. As I write this (November 2010), Daytona is undergoing a repaving project which should make the 2.5-mile tri-oval a better surface to race on in 2011.
On race weekends, our charter buses park close to the location of our seats on the front stretch. For race fans, there generally isn’t more than a 10-minute walk required to get from one spot to another at Daytona. The grounds are pretty flat and easy to navigate.
Weather during the July race weekend in Daytona is usually warm with a high in the 90s and lows in the 70s.”
