CHALLENGEDAYTONA event is held on and around Daytona International Speedway – which you probably know from NASCAR races or the 24 hours of Daytona. The environment is really amazing and it will be very spectacular to race on the circuit.

One of the best travel options is flying towards Daytona Beach International Airport. This airport is just a couple of minutes close to the Speedway, so after your flight you can quickly go to your accommodation around or directly checkout the race courses. Instead of Daytona Beach International Airport, you can choose for Orlando International Airport as well. This airport is a little bit further away, but still in good connection (one hour drive) to Daytona International Speedway and even so CHALLENGEDAYTONA.

In the vicinity of Daytona International Speedway you will find lots of accommodations: hotels, bed & breakfast and apartments. In the upcoming weeks we will announce some travel packages with the possibility of camping on Daytona International Speedway. There will be some nice hotel deals as well, which we will offer you with big pleasure. It’s also good to know that you can combine this race with a visit to nearby cities like Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville or even – a little bit further away – Atlanta.
