Iowa Speedway’s 7th Annual Daytona 500 Party will be on tap this Sunday, Feb. 24, in the track’s upscale Newton Club. Tickets are available in advance or at the door for $10 per person, with doors opening at 11 a.m. on race day.  

The Fox television broadcast of The Great American Race will begin at noon on multiple screens throughout the 10,000 square foot clubhouse, located on the ground floor of Iowa Speedway’s suite tower.

According to track officials, the 2013 edition of the track’s Daytona 500 Party will offer party-goers a special ticket for chances to win numerous door prizes, and a car number from among the Daytona 500 entries for more opportunities to win gift baskets, retailer gift cards and other merchandise.

“Our Daytona 500 Party is a wintertime tradition for many Iowa Speedway fans,” said Jason Christofferson, director of ticketing operations. “For hundreds of our customers, it’s the launch of a new racing season, and we always have fun regardless of the weather in Newton.” 

Tickets to the 7th Annual Daytona 500 Party at Iowa Speedway are available for purchase online at www.iowaspeedway.com or by calling the track’s toll-free ticketing line, 866-RUSTY-GO (787-8946).
