    RV at The Daytona 500

    RV Camping Daytona 500

    To some it’s known as the “Super Bowl of Racing.” To others, “The Great American Race.” But most people know it by the iconic title it has carried for more than 50 years, The Daytona 500.

    Every year the race attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to Daytona Beach, FL for the kickoff to the NASCAR season. This year the race will take place on Sunday, February 23 and once again expects large crowds of race fans and casual sports fans alike to take part in the spectacle.

    One of the most popular ways to watch the race is by taking your RV down to Daytona Beach, camping out, and then watching the 500 from the infield of the track. Talk about a once in a lifetime experience! 

    There is nothing quite like attending one of the biggest sporting events of the year and being able to park your RV right in the center of the action. The Daytona International Speedway has plenty of camping options available for RVers. From camping sites for tailgating only, to sites located directly on the infield of the track, The Speedway offers fans a chance to take in “The Great American Race” on their own terms.

    Make sure to take a look at camping options the track offers that are sure to give you goosebumps and memories for years to come.
