Discover Daytona Beach

Parking spaces near Daytona International Speedway are hot items during big race events such as the Daytona 500 and Rolex 24. There’s ample parking lots and parking shortage has never happened in the past, but if you don’t know where to look, the experience can be very stressful. Just ask those who parked at the wrong places and ended up with a parking ticket or worse, a towed vehicle.

Parking varies depending on the vehicle you want and the amount of money you’re willing to spend. There’s free parking provided by Daytona International Speedway, but these lots usually fill up hours before the race. Then there are premium parking spaces that you can avail of and most are priced reasonably, but there are also those that will cost you an arm and a leg.

To help you create a “parking plan” for your next Daytona race event trip, we’ve put together a list of parking spaces for you. Tip: Always assume that you won’t get your first and second choice of parking space. This way, you already have contingencies. Also, plan early and reserve your parking slot in advance if possible.

Free parking is provided by Daytona International Speedway at Lot 7 and Lot 10. Lot 7, which is located on the corner of Clyde Morris Boulevard and Bill France Boulevard provides ideal parking for Frontstretch ticket holders. On the other hand, Lot 10 is recommended for Backstretch ticket holders. Free shuttle service to and from these parking areas are provided by Daytona International Speedway.

Frontstretch bus parking can be found just east of Williamson Boulevard in the Turn 1 Plaza while backstretch bus parking can be found at the back of the Backstretch grandstands. You can access the backstretch bus parking by entering through Gate 70 off Midway Boulevard and proceed to Lot 6.
