DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Daytona 500 is sold out for the third straight year.
The single-ticket sellout was announced a day before Sunday's race. While most of NASCAR's tracks have suffered from serious attendance woes, Daytona International Speedway continues to pack the place for the sport's signature event.
The track holds 101,500 seats, and countless more hard-partying fans stuff the infield. DIS was helped by a $400 million overhaul known as "Daytona Rising" that transformed the track into a modern sports stadium.
