When it comes to NASCAR events, there is no more well-known name than the Daytona 500. This particular NASCAR event is an annual event held as part of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and is considered to be the most important and most prestigious race in the entire NASCAR season. It also carries the largest purse of any event in the series. The 500 mile long event is held each year at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida to some of the biggest crowds in sports today. Unlike most large sporting events that occur at the end of the season, the Daytona 500 is actually used to kick-off the NASCAR season and is typically held over Presidents Day or around that weekend in February.
