The forecast looks great! Allow plenty of extra time for traffic, before and after. Enjoy!

Not making it this year, but Fox Sports did a mini-documentary on our trip there last year. Today they posted the video on Youtube, as well as the Foxsports NASCAR website!

The 500

We live in the area and usually like to vacate town for the week of the invasion. LOL! It gets crazy traffic and tons of people.

Do they let people take their RVs and park in the infield? And if so how would you get a pass or ticket for that?

Bob, sorry to disappoint, but we will be home for this one. Anyone coming, plan on mucho traffic. If you have not reserved a site at a campground already, leave you coach at home. All usually booked solid.
For staying at the speedway, go to the speedway website and look around for camping in the infield. Good luck.

We camped 11 days at Lake Lloyd. Those spots open up in June, prior to the next year's race. There are very few spots available on Lake Lloyd, as those who have camped there previously get first dibs at the same spot for the following year.

That's very cool! We live not far from Daytona but have never been to the Daytona 500. My daughter has raced her motorcycle around that track though. Her comment was "those banks are no joke!" lol We have been to Talladega twice, once in our 37LX.

I survived !!!! Not really, took 8 days to recuperate. Sucks getting old. A big shout out to all the Floridians. Your weather and hospitality were great.
