SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

The Daytona International Speedway will continue the tradition of hosting Scout Days, a one-of-a-kind event that blends high-speed sports car action with two nights of camping and scouting activities, during The Roar Before The Rolex 24 Jan. 3-5. The event is prior to the 52nd anniversary Rolex 24 At Daytona.

Boy and Girl Scouts from throughout the Southeast are invited to watch the stars of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge test the twists and turns of the 3.56-mile road course as they prepare for their respective season-opening events.

Fishing, scavenger hunts
The Scouts also will get to camp in the infield of Daytona and enjoy special activities such as fishing on Lake Lloyd, infield tours and scavenger hunts. They also will receive a special event patch to commemorate the visit.

Daytona International Speedway has been hosting Scout Days at the Roar Before The Rolex 24 since 2010.
