It’s no secret that sporting events, including popular NASCAR race days like those at Daytona International Speedway, have been struggling to draw capacity crowds over the past few years. The sputtering economy has a rippling effect on many family budgets causing diminished ticket sales at tracks that some years ago were repeatedly sold out.
Some of the empty seats at DIS in recent years could be as a result of tandem drafting at superspeedways that many fans disliked. With changes to the new Gen-6 cars it appears the bumpers don’t line up any more and pushing will be a precarious maneuver. The Daytona 500 on Feb. 24 will show if NASCAR’s efforts to eliminate the tandem racing have been successful.
The management at DIS has also made it easier for fans to obtain tickets for events in 2013. Fans now have the option to select Bill Me Later, a PayPal service, when ordering tickets online.
