Scenes of Summer - Daytona style

While Florida is a destination for it's world-famous beaches, diehard NASCAR fans have only one locale in mind for a summer visit to the Sunshine State: Daytona International Speedway. Setting up camp in the legendary infield with inflatable swimming pools, makeshift sundecks and flags of every size and color, race fans not only enjoy the sights and sounds of their favorites drivers, they're ready to soak up the sunshine, and an occasional thunderstorm.
