Daytona International Speedway

Daytona International Speedway is proclaimed to be the "World Center of Racing". Orignially built in 1959 by NASCAR founder William France Sr, the 2.5 mile tri-oval with portions of the track having as much as 31 degrees of banking. The track was designed to move racing from the near by Daytona beach and road course. While most well known for hosting NASCAR's most prestigious race, The Daytona 500, over the years, the track has become a total motorsports facility hosting many other types of racing including motorcycles, several stock car divisions, go karts, and sports cars most notably The Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.
