Start Your Engines! The 56th Running of the Daytona 500 is February 23rd
Get those engines started! The 56th running of the Daytona 500 is February 23, 2014. Nicknamed "The Great American Race," the Daytona 500 is the biggest, most expensive, and most prestigious race in America. With a long history of heart-wrenching defeats, come from behind victories, famous duels, photo finishes and top-of-the-line entertainment, the race is one of the most anticipated in American sports. No NASCAR race would be complete without tailgating, so grab some friends and get in the spirit before you head out to watch Jeff Gordon, Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and other house-hold names compete for the title of NASCAR's most grueling race.
NASCAR novices and enthusiasts alike will delight in the week-long Daytona Speedweek leading up to the historical race. Events include the Lucas Oil 200, Spring Unlimited and the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Another event that can't be missed is the Sprint Fanzone where fans can view pre-race entertainment and have their picture taken on the famed start and finish line.
Get your engines revving with a stay at The Shores Resort & Spa, conveniently located amidst the action of Daytona Speedweek 2014. Book your room now and make sure you don't miss a moment of the fun!
