There’s nothing quite like the thrill of watching the green flag fly and hearing the subsequent roar of engines in a race regarded by many as the most prestigious on the NASCAR schedule. A field of 40 plus drivers in machines built for speed power up for a marathon of endurance in hopes a landing not only the hefty purse afforded the winner, but also the notoriety that comes with it.
The only thrill better for a true NASCAR fan is to see the checkered flag fly with your favorite driver in the lead. Private jet charters to the Daytona 500 are the fastest and most convenient way to get to the speedway to watch the coveted race.
The Daytona 500
The Daytona 500 is the kickoff race of the NASCAR racing season. It typically occurs on the second or third Sunday in February and is the perfect excuse for anyone tired for snow, ice, and polar vortexes to head south for a little surf, sun, and on-track excitement. This year, the Daytona 500 is held on February 22, 2015.
The race is 500 miles on a paved oval track located in Daytona, Florida. While official numbers haven’t been released from the Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR estimates that nearly 182,000 people attend the race each year.
While the track is certainly the main attraction in Daytona on race weekend, there are plenty of other exciting things to see and do during your stay, including the Daytona 500 Experience, an interactive experience and museum located at the Daytona International Speedway.
While you’re there, consider giving the ultimate fan gift to yourself or to someone you love with the Richard Petty Driving Experience, a Ride-Along Experience, or a Junior Ride-Along.
Of course, one rather unique experience in this central Florida area, is the ability to drive on the beach (on select beaches in Daytona), something that’s largely forbidden on other beaches throughout the country, and the world for that matter.
Other attractions include the South Beach Street Historic District filled with boutique shopping and dining experiences (and the perfect place to explore antiques), The Museum of Arts and Sciences (complete with an interactive Children’s Museum), The Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse and Museum, and the Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier.
Finally, Daytona offers many extraordinary golfing opportunities, so don’t forget your clubs.
Daytona 500 Private Jet Benefits
Like most popular annual events, travel can be tricky when spectators (or participants) need to commute from other cities, states, or other countries. Why grapple with the inconvenience and hassle of a commercial flight when you can charter your own private jet to Daytona, Florida?
Private aviation is the best way to relish the Daytona 500 experience. Not only are you able to arrive in style, but you’re also enjoy the benefit of flying on your timetable rather than the airline’s.
You’ll also appreciate the ability to land at any one of the small regional airports in the area for greater convenience. Most visitors traveling to Daytona Beach fly into the Orlando International Airport, which is more than an hour away from Daytona Beach. The ability to fly into other airports like, Daytona Beach International Airport, Ormond Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, or Spruce Creek Airport puts you closer to the action and cuts down your commute to the track.
You can also experience the convenience of avoiding long airport waits along with security hassles. You can drive right up to the plane and take off when it’s convenient for you to do so.
