Taste of the 24-Unique Dining Experience During the Rolex 24 to Benefit Local Charities

This weekend officially kicks off the racing season in Daytona Beach. It seems like just a minute ago that we were in Homestead as I am sure my friends who work in the sport will agree!

The Rolex 24 means different things to me as an adult. As a lifelong resident, this weekend meant a fun weekend as a high schooler/college student...pretty much the largest campground night out/sleepover ever. But as an adult, I have the pleasure of the bigger experience than in the infield over a campfire watching the cars go round. 

Out of all the events that are held this 24 Hour Weekend, by far The Taste of the 24 has become one of my favorites. This event gives you an opportunity to sample food and drink from 24 of our best restaurants while visiting the gorgeous backstretch corporate suites of the Daytona International Speedway. It is a great view to watch the race, see your friends and get a Taste of what Volusia County's restaurants have to offer.

Also as exciting- my friends from S.R. Perrott will have their amazing wines at this event!! They have an amazing selection which you can peruse here. I can't wait to see what they they feature!

Racing enthusiasts from around the world and local residents alike will converge on Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 26, 2013 for the fourth-annual Taste of the 24. The event, which benefits The NASCAR Foundation and the Daytona State College Foundation, features a unique blend of food from 24 of the area’s finest restaurants, a cigar bar, live jazz and a chance to win a Rolex watch.

Taste of the 24 will take place in the Backstretch Grandstand Corporate Suites on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 6 to 10 p.m. during the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway. 

“Taste of the 24 is a great opportunity to support local charities while enjoying outstanding food from 24 of our area’s finest restaurants during the Rolex 24 at Daytona,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “The suites high atop Daytona’s backstretch provide a superb view for fine dining as well as all the drama that unfolds during North America’s premier endurance sports car race.”

Tickets are $95 per person and include premier event parking, Taste of the 24 event admission, a weekend pass to the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Sprint FANZONE access and a chance to win a Rolex watch. Tickets for children 12 and under may be purchased at the door for $24. Seating will be limited.
