Daytona International Speedway

<p>The Daytona International Speedway is the city's principal race track, which has multiple races each year. The race track is run by the International Speedway Corporation, and hosts races for multiple leagues including NASCAR, ARCA, AMA Superbike, SCCA, and Motocross. The track itself was designed and engineered in the early 1950s by NASCAR founder William France Sr., and its layout comes in the form of the famous tri-oval. Over the years, breakthroughs in engineering have allowed for relatively quick changes to the track, allowing for different courses for races run by different organizations.</p>

Auto Racing

Perhaps only Indianapolis can offer a comparable level of major auto racing as Daytona Beach. The city‰Ûªs Daytona International Speedway hosts NASCAR‰Ûªs Daytona 500 every year. This is the opening race of the NASCAR season and considered the premier race of the circuit. NASCAR fans also attend the annually held Coke Zero 400 race a few months later in July. For those who get a thrill from endurance racing, Daytona hosts the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race in January. Add in the various festivities of Bike Week in March, and Daytona Beach is a mecca of racing activity throughout the year.

24 Hours of Daytona

<p>The 24 Hours of Daytona is a 24 hour sports car endurance race. Although the race itself has been known as the 24 Hours of Daytona for decades, it is officially called the Rolex 24 at Daytona, because of Rolex's sponsorship and the fact that the winner of the race is awarded a brand new Rolex watch. The race itself is unique in that a car has to have raced for 24 hours before crossing the finish line to classify. That made the race officially one of the longest of its time, as it started in 1966.</p>
