DATYONA BEACH, Fla. - Going to the Daytona 500 this year? We got you covered.

The stands will be packed this Sunday at the 64th annual Daytona 500.  Racing officials announced on Monday that the event is completely sold out.

If interested in tickets to the race, visit https://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com/.

Regarding 2022 COVID-19 policies, NASCAR requires that all guests wear a face mask while indoors and in enclosed areas at all times, regardless of vaccination status.

If you have tickets to attend the 64th-annual Great American Race, the Daytona International Speedway advises that you arrive early to allow time for new entry procedures. Have your tickets, credentials, and parking pass ready for staff to review. 

The following items will be prohibited upon entry:

Any other items deemed inappropriate or unsafe may be refused at the discretion of security and management.

However, the Daytona International Speedway said that the following items are allowed:

There will be fewer concessions this year than usual. For example, there will be no buffet or self-serve options at any concession locations. In addition, menus and food preparation onsite will be limited as much as possible. Physical barriers will be between guests and food-service operations as well. Employees involved will undergo the same health screenings as those in the stands.

The Geico Campgrounds are back and fully open!  Whether you’re in a decked-out motorcoach or a tent is more your style, Daytona offers a camping option that puts you right next to all the history and heritage that’s made this place world-famous.  Camping occurs in the 180-acre infield. Surrounded by the famous 31-degree banked turns, you’ll find that there’s far more happening at Daytona than just three-wide racing. 

Infield campgrounds and GEICO Park West campgrounds also include FREE WI-FI! Need more information, or ready to lock in your camping spot? Call us at 1-800-PITSHOP (1-800-748-7467) or visit the Speedway's camping page.
