Ladies and gentlemen start your engines! The Daytona International Speedway, a 60,000-square-foot (18,000-square-meter) interactive motor-sports attraction, hosts Winston, Nascar, stock and sports-car, go-cart, monster truck and motorcycle races. The place goes crazy in February when the "World Center of Racing" hosts the Daytona 500, one of the biggest car racing events in the world.
When there aren't any races, travelers can get a peek of the track for free. Adjacent to the speedway, race-car fans can take a Pit Stop Challenge or a 30-minute tram tour of the track and then opt to roar up to 200 mph (320 km/h) in a spectacular simulator for a virtual reality-like race against other passengers in Acceleration Alley.
Other attractions include an action-packed IMAX film, a 30-minute tram tour of the track and the actual winning car from the Daytona 500 every year—scratches, dents and all.
Daytona International Speedway is 4 miles (6 km) west of Daytona Beach. The visitor center houses a large souvenir shop, a snack bar and Daytona USA.
