Track Night 2023: Daytona International Speedway - September 22
Daytona International Speedway is a race track in Daytona Beach, Florida. Since opening in 1959, it has been the home of the Daytona 500, the most prestigious race in NASCAR. In addition to NASCAR, the track also hosts races of ARCA, AMA Superbike, USCC, SCCA, and Motocross. The track features multiple layouts including the primary 2.5-mile (4.0 km) high-speed tri-oval, a 3.56-mile (5.73 km) sports car course, a 2.95-mile (4.75 km) motorcycle course, and a 1,320-foot (400 m) karting and motorcycle flat-track.
Track Nighters will enter and check in at Gate 40- after check-in participants may head to the parking area adjacent to the International Horseshoe marked as Track Night Paddock on the map.
When you arrive at gate 40, look for the Grassroots Motorsports pop-up tent, bring your helmet and tech sheet and come see us. If you do not have a tech sheet, one will be provided for you.
After you are checked in, you will head into the Speedway, and we will paddock adjacent to the International Horseshoe Stands. Please allow enough time to get checked-in, to your paddock location and prepared for your driver's meeting.
Grid will be on the Truck Pad. For each session we will make a PA call for drivers to come to the grid, so you may return to paddock between sessions, mingle or watch other drivers on track.
Advanced, Intermediate, and Novice groups: $255
Join SCCA and Save! National Members Pay: $235
Track Tour Laps and Spectating: FREE!
The concession stand will not be open during this event. Please bring your own food and plenty of cold beverages. Maintaining effective hydration is a necessary element in any motorsport activity and Track Night is no exception. Poor hydration can lead to poor decision making. Let's all be safe, have fun and stay hydrated.
