Racing

Since 1929 when Major Henry Segrave set his final land speed record on the white sandy beaches of the "World's Most Famous Beach," the Daytona Beach area has become synonymous with the high-octane sport of racing. Daytona International Speedway, the World Center of Racing, hosts the area’s most popular automobile, go kart and motorcycle races.

Each year, visitors descend upon Daytona Beach and the surrounding areas to witness history in the making at automobile and motorcycle races, like the DAYTONA 500, Coke Zero Sugar 400 and more! Check out these Daytona Beach races to plan your stay.

National Racing Landmarks and Museums

Even when there aren’t big events happening, race fans cNan visit one of the many speedway parks in the area. A national racing landmark, Volusia Speedway Park on State Road 40 in Barberville is home of the Dirt Car Nationals every February. The New Smyrna Beach Speedway offers sanctioned NASCAR races throughout the year. The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, a 10,000 square foot homage to all forms of motorsports, is located at Daytona International Speedway. And various historical racing museums such as the Living Legends of Auto Racing in South Daytona entertain motorsports enthusiasts year-round. Be sure to add a self-guided walk through Birthplace of Speed Park in Ormond Beach and the beach racing display at the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Museum for historical perspective.

Watch video: Visit the Living Legends of Auto Racing Museum for its ever-changing collection of memorabilia.
