Daytona 400 July 3rd

Hi guys,

I'm going to be in Florida during the Daytons 400 Nascar race and was wondering if it's worth going to and if so then which ticket and place to watch the event from?

Get a ticket on the backstretch of the track...high up. I've been before and although I'm not really a NASCAR fan, I had a great time.

I was in Florida last year with friends, our 2 weeks overlapped by a week with theirs but alas I returned home two days before the race. They (the other family) decided on the off chance to go to the race simply because they had nothing else planned and had a ball at the event. He bought the 'pit passes' which allow them into the infield area and said it was the best motorsport event he had ever been at.

This year is a night event, is that better or worse? I imagine it's better because of the sun and possible sun burn issues (white English man talking ).

Finally bought my tickets for the Daytona 400 on the 3rd of July, is anyone else going?

Also as this will be the first and probably only time I will be there I've pick the 31 Degrees race hospitality package with the full pit passes, plus tried to take on board as much advice about best possible seating so hope I ended up going for 'turn 4 in Oldfield Tower' stand, is this a good spot?

Just be sure you can tolerate the heat. I know it is at night but it is an unusally hot summer so far (humidity is a b***). 85 degrees when I left for work at 6:00AM a few days ago........
