DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Tickets for the 60th annual Daytona 500 officially go on sale Monday, June 12 at 9 a.m. Eastern time.

For the past two years, the season-opening race for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has sold out.

The milestone running of “The Great American Race” is also notable for a date shift, one that moves the event back to its previous longstanding (1968-2011) place on Presidents Day weekend, Sunday, Feb. 18.

The Daytona 500 will be preceded by another return to tradition on Sunday, Feb. 11 – a doubleheader featuring the Advance Auto Parts Clash and Daytona 500 Pole Qualifying presented by Kroger.

Race fans will have the opportunity to experience the 2018 Daytona 500 in the world’s only motorsports stadium, with unprecedented amenities that include 101,500 new, wider seats, thousands of premium club seats, 40 escalators and 17 elevators, 60 luxury suites, social “neighborhoods” and three concourse levels that span the nearly mile-long frontstretch.

Those wishing to attend “The Great American Race” in person should make their plans early.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 1-800-PITSHOP or visiting www.Daytona500.com.

In addition to tickets for the Daytona 500, fans can also purchase tickets and multi-day ticket packages for other events during Speedweeks, which kicks off on Jan. 27-28 with the 56th Rolex 24 At Daytona, the season-opener for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
