Daytona International Speedway is the home of "The Great American Race" - the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event garners most of the attention - as well as the largest audience in motorsports - the enormous 480-acre motorsports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe, thus earning it the title of "World Center of Racing." In addition to eight major weekends of racing activity that include the running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, rarely a week goes by that the Speedway grounds are not used for events that include civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
