IMSA's Return to Racing on July 4th at Daytona Will Have Fans...But There's a Catch


The IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship Series will be returning to action on Saturday, July 4th at Daytona International Speedway with the running of the ISMA WeatherTech 240.

The race will take place on Daytona’s 3.56-mile high-banked tri-oval/infield road course with the Green Flag dropping at 6:05 pm for the two hours and 40-minute race.

Initially, the race was scheduled to run without fans, but IMSA officials working with public health agencies and local/state/federal authorities have been able to come up with a plan that will allow 5,000 tickets for seating on the front stretch grandstands as well as a limited number of infield campers. The catch to this is that tickets are limited to Florida Residents only.

“We’ve waited a long time to welcome our loyal race fans back to Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona Beach area,” said Chip Wile, DIS President. “There has been a lot of work and extensive planning by our track staff, IMSA, government and health officials, as well as NASCAR to methodically bring fans back to our historic facility. Rest assured we will make sure that every fan in attendance is safe and can enjoy the excitement of the IMSA WeatherTech 240 At DAYTONA. Having the IMSA sports cars back for this summer tradition just got more exciting with fans here to see it.”

Tickets for the IMSA WeatherTech 240 are just $30 and kids 12 and under are free. Check out the Event Page at the Daytona International Speedway for additional details and ticket ordering.
