Daytona Announces Hotel Discounts

Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III announced today that the speedway has expanded its ongoing efforts to help lower the costs for fans attending Speedweeks and the 2012 Daytona 500, with special hotel rates available through February 22nd, 2012.

From now through December 31, fans can save at least 20-percent off the standard rate for hotels located in the Daytona Beach region and surrounding areas. From January 1, through February 22, 2012, fans can save at least 10 percent off standard room rates.

At least 20 hotels are participating in the program so far, and more will likely be added in the future. All are located within 35 miles of the Speedway in Daytona Beach, western Volusia County, Seminole and Flagler counties. Fans can visit to find a list of participating hotels, along with contact information for reservations.

“We continue to work very closely with our local and regional hotel partners to provide our fans and guests with the best rates possible,” said Chitwood. “We want to thank those hotels who continue to participate in this important program and welcome additional hotels to join. Our fans are the most loyal and passionate in all of sports. By working together, we will ensure our guests have a memorable and positive experience when they visit our community.”

This offer is made possible through a partnership between Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Seminole Convention and Visitors Bureau, the West Volusia Tourism Bureau and the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce. Hotels interested in participating in this program can contact the Speedway for more information.

The speedway has also announced a new Daytona 500 youth ticketing policy. Children 12 and under will receive 50-percent off all Superstretch grandstand seats for the Daytona 500 with the purchase of an adult ticket. This special offer is available only while supplies last. Tickets for the 54th annual Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 26 as well as other Speedweeks 2012 events can be purchased online at or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP

    As long as they are restricting you to having to stay a certain number of nights, it is a rip-off. You can either be content to have us fill seats for one or two races, or have us not be there at all.
