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!
Events for December 2013
Loretta Lynn In Concert
7:30 p.m. The Peabody Daytona Beach, 600 Auditorium Blvd., Daytona Beach. 3 p.m. For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful-and as culturally significant-as any female performer you'd care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner's Daughter-the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself-has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. http://www.PeabodyAuditorium.org (386) 671-3460
