Fast cars have been a part of Daytona from the time cars were invented. World land speed records were set on the beach as well as the beginnings of stock car racing.
Daytona’s biggest celebrity, Bill France Sr. literally invented the super speedway which has created exciting NASCAR racing. His high banked turns allowed super speeds to be reached while spectators are able to watch all the action around the entire track. Daytona is the world’s most famous racing destination.
