Since its opening in 1959, Daytona International Speedway has hosted this esteemed race. With an 180-acre infield (including the lake, which is 29 acres itself), this speedway has the best seats in racing — 90% of the venue can be seen from any seat. Now that’s good planning! The tri-oval course (used for this race) is 2.5 miles of pure speed. Though the track has undergone a variety of improvements in its history, in January 2013, the Speedway announced plans to overhaul and renovate the venue, adding five new entrances, a second pedestrian bridge, and thousands of new seats in an expanded grandstand. Also included in the plans are more concession areas, ticket gates, and plenty of room to see the racing.
