The Daytona 500 tickets were first sold when the Daytona 500 was first run back in 1957 on Daytona Beach. The course was still an oval, but the track crossed between paved highway and the sandy beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. Two years later in 1959 the Daytona 500 was moved to it's present home, the Daytona International Motor Speedway located in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The Daytona International Motor Speedway used to have a capacity of 168,000- but the $400M renovation for 2016 reduces the capacity by 45,000 down to 123,000 seats or a 27% reduction which is always filled to capacity with lucky ticket holders on the day of the Daytona 500. One feature that sets the Daytona International Motor Speedway apart from the rest is that its 2.5-mile track loops around an artificial lake known as Lake Lloyd, which was created when the ground was excavated and used to create the banked turns of the track.
