Getting from the parking lot to your seat
• Where do I park?
Free parking is available in Daytona International Speedway’s Lot 7, providing free park and ride service to and from the Speedway before and after the race. After parking at the park and ride pick-up location, the buses will drop you off in lot 2. From that point, you will be directed to walk across the pedestrian bridge, which will bring you directly outside of the Toyota Gate.
• Where is the Midway?
The Midway has been relocated from outside Turn 4 to between the outside of the frontstretch and International Speedway Boulevard. This is where you will find all of your merchandising needs, sponsor activations, food and beverages, the FPL Solar Pavilion and plenty of seating areas to relax. The brand- new 65,000-square-foot tent, known as the Fanatics Superstore is also located in the Midway and will be the one-stop shop for driver and event gear and apparel.
• How do I find a ticket gate?

• Where is Will Call?
Will Call is located at the main ticket office inside the Ticket & Tours Building, which is located at 1801 W International Speedway Blvd outside the Turn 4 tunnel on the corner of Bill France Blvd and International Speedway Blvd. Will Call can be picked up both at the outside windows labeled WILL CALL and the ticket windows located inside of the building for your convenience. The Ticket Office is open seven days a week leading up to and including the DAYTONA 500. You must have a valid ID to pick up your will call, and we encourage guests to pick up their tickets prior to event day.
Getting from the Midway to the Infield
If you’re looking to get from the Midway area to the infield and Sprint FANZONE, Daytona International Speedway provides two options.
Option 1: LOT 1 TRAM PLAZA
- The ideal way to access Sprint FANZONE is through the Lot 1 Tram Plaza, located near the Florida Hospital gate. The Sprint FANZONE tram at this Plaza provides a direct route to and from Sprint FANZONE daily.
Option 2: FROM TURN 4 AREA
- Guests near the Turn 4 tunnel can access Sprint FANZONE by walking through the Turn 4 tunnel.
