Daytona International Speedway
On our way back to the campsite one day, we decided to swing by the Daytona International Speedway just to show the kids how big the track is. By pure luck there was a race scheduled the next day, the BMW Endurance Challenge 2021, so we jumped at the chance.
Despite the beautiful weather, there were hardly any spectators out for the race. It felt like we had Daytona to ourselves. General admissions tickets got us any seat in the house. The track and complex were so impressive, and we tried out views from the front row all the way to the very top.
We loved the experience so much more than we expected. The sound of the engines and the anticipation of the race was exhilarating. We ended up watching the entire 4 hour race to see the cars cross the finish line.
