I'm thinking about going to Daytona for the 2015 24 hour race. I've never been there before and would appreciate any information on where to stay, what its like during the race, does anyone really watch during the wee hours of the morning, is it worth getting grandstand tickets, is it even worth going, etc.? Thanks.

THe best deal is the Grassroots Motorsports Magazine package.

No one is in the grandstands, the action is in the pit and garages watching the crews patch cars up.

Seeing the cars blast around at 4am is kinda neat. Also the COnti race on Friday is worth watching, usually a 4 hour race...

I have been several times, always camped in the infield, sometimes have seen as little as 3 or 4 laps of racing but always spent a lot of time in the pits/paddock. One time left the track at 5am and went down to the beach to drink mimos'as and watch the sunrise.

It is a great winter break but do not expect much from Daytona Beach...kinda run down on the waterfront.
