@DC76 , I was staying at the Best Western as well, got there Wednesday the 12th PM and we to attended the Twins, Truck and Exfinity races. Wish we could have met up. :D

What did you think of the new Stadium style facility at the track? Escalators are the best thing ever at that track.

That $5.00 shuttle from the Best Western to the track was worth every penny for this old fart and his bride. :booya::punkrocke

Thanks for the great pictures.

I thought the facility was really nice. The escalators were great. I used the elevator also, but i don't think it was any faster. My tickets were in the 459 section of the tri oval club which had a great view of the whole track. If I'm lucky enough to go again I would probably sit somewhere in the 300 level. The 400 level got a little windy late in the afternoon. I moved around a lot for the trucks and xfinity race and I didn't find a bad seat. The 100 level was awesome watching the cars fly by at 200mph, but you can't see the whole track from there. The sights and sounds you get when attending a race in person can never be replicated by tv.
The shuttle was great. I used uber and it was about $15 to the track when the gates opened and jumped up to about $26 after the race. I found out about the shuttle when eating breakfast at the hotel and worked out a lot better.

If you find yourself in Daytona beach there's a bar/restaurant called cruising cafe. Not sure but I believe its on the corner of Atlantic and Main st. It had a pretty cool racing theme. The tables were race cars, cash registers were tool boxes, etc.
