Daytona International Speedway has been home to the DAYTONA 500 since hosting the inaugural event in 1959. Traditionally held every February, the DAYTONA 500 is NASCAR's biggest, richest and most prestigious event of the year and the season-opener to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Staged on the historic 2.5-tri-oval, the 200-lap, 500-mile event has been captured by racing greats such as Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Cale Yarborough, Jeff Gordon, Dale Jarrett, Bobby Allison, Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Joey Logano, and Austin Dillon.
Fans from all 50 states and more than 40 different countries flock to Daytona Beach every year to see which driver will be the next to hoist the Harley J. Earl trophy as a DAYTONA 500 champion.
