Is there any access to the track to watch the Wednesday practice sessions?

The Daytona Speedway site only lists ticket admission for Thursday through Sunday.

I have to head that way today, so let me see if I can find out about Wednesday access.

As I feared, the IMSA credential office didn't have an answer for your question. 

I'd say call the Speedway ticket office. (Or just show up Wednesday and see what happens.)

Thanks for checking.  My sales rep has emailed me twice to "make sure I have everything I need" (?) so maybe I'll take him up on that offer....

Take 'em up. 

I know the question of Wednesday admission has come up before and, to be honest, I can't remember the answer.

For as long as I've been going, Thursday has always been the first day of admission for non-IMSA or journo folks.

Technically, you cannot get in with a ticket on Wednesday, nor can you occupy an RV site.

But...I've had great success "dropping off this project car I'm towing behind me"

Flying down with my 15 year old nephew Saturday morning. My second time to the race (last year was my first) and looking forward to this years weather forecast coming from the snowy mid-west. 

I had committed to taking him to COTA for F1 but after seeing GA tickets were $475 decided this was a much more practical option. Looking forward to sharing the event with him
