WHY DAYTONA IN FEBRUARY? The RPM Promoters Workshops have been for over 40 years a cornerstone of Daytona Speedweek. Since 1972, RPM has gathered the nation’s promoters during Florida Speedweek. If you’ve always wanted to witness the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at ROBERT HART’s New Smyrna, the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia, or the Winternationals at AL VARNADORE’s and TODD HUTTO’s East Bay here’s your chance for a “working vacation.” You can attend the Workshops by day and go racing every night. You’ll rub shoulders with racing movers and shakers at the Workshops, in restaurants, pit areas, and concourses. Families will enjoy sunny Daytona-area beaches. Flee the snow and cold early and catch short track action in Georgia and Florida as you drive south. Arrive early for the Shootout at the big speedway, or stay for the Duels or the Daytona 500. Visit Epcot, Disney, SeaWorld or other Orlando attractions.
ENJOY AMERICA’S MOST FAMOUS BEACH! Daytona Beach offers kayaking, para-sailing, and more. Relax aboard a scenic riverboat. On the famous beach, enjoy water slides, surf lessons or fishing.
