$50 Donation for Two Laps Around The World Center of Racing Road Course to Benefit The NASCAR Foundation’s Programs for Kids

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 21, 2021) – The NASCAR Foundation and Daytona International Speedway will team up again to bring back the License to Drive event on Monday, January 24, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET.

New this year, participants who pay $50 per vehicle will have the opportunity to drive their car for two laps around the iconic 3.56 -mile World Center of Racing Road Course, experiencing what IMSA drivers will have to endure during the Rolex 24. Fans will be led by a Daytona International Speedway Safety/Pace vehicle.

“We’re excited to bring back this fundraising event which has become a fan favorite” said Nichole Krieger, The NASCAR Foundation Executive Director. “The support we received from the community last year during our first-ever License to Drive event at Daytona International Speedway was incredible and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back at The World Center of Racing.”

The License to Drive event will provide guests the opportunity to take their street legal vehicles around the historical venue at 55 mph. No passing will be allowed. All participants will be required to stay in their vehicle at all times.

Participants behind the wheel must have a valid driver’s license. Each vehicle must be equipped with enough seatbelts for all passengers. Vehicles deemed unsafe by DIS staff will not be allowed onto the track surface. No motorcycles, RV’s or tractor trailers will be allowed.

Fans can register online at www.NASCARfoundation.org/drive. On-site registration will also be available at Lot 6 the day of the event, beginning at 2 p.m. Entry to the area will be at Gate 70 off Midway Avenue.

Since it was established in 2006, The NASCAR Foundation has raised more than $41 million and helped over 1.5 million children in need. The License to Drive event will continue these efforts, with all proceeds from the day’s activities benefiting the Foundation’s initiatives, aimed at improving the health and wellness of children in both Daytona Beach and in race markets across the country.
