It's official. The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Daytona 500 is a sell-out. On Tuesday, November 28th Daytona International Speedway announced that grandstand seating for the February 18th running of the Great American Race is no longer available through the ticket office.

According to Daytona International Speedway, this will mark the ninth consecutive season that the Daytona 500 grandstands have been sold out, and this is one of the earliest announcements we've had of the Daytona 500 being sold out in recent memory.

“Our fans continue to impress year after year, but the rate at which the 2024 Daytona 500 has sold out is a true testament to what this race represents,” said Daytona International Speedway President Frank Kelleher. “It’s anticipation that builds throughout the year and into the offseason, then all comes together for a week of pure entertainment, competition and this passionate feeling you don’t get anywhere else but The World Center of Racing. We can’t wait to have a full house of race fans for the NASCAR season opener.”

Daytona International Speedway shared a video to it's account on X, formerly Twitter, showcasing the sell-out news:

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. emerged victorious in the 2023 Daytona 500, which secured a place in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs for the driver of the No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet Camaro.

The 200-lap, 500-mile race around the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway has become known as NASCAR's Super Bowl, and has served as the season-opening race on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule since the 1982 season.

Some of the sports biggest names have triumphed on NASCAR's biggest stage over the years.

Richard Petty is the all-time winningest driver in Daytona 500, as he collected seven Harley J. Earl trophies throughout his NASCAR Hall of Fame career.

The legendary Dale Earnhardt captured the Daytona 500 win in 1998 after 20 brutal years of trying to capture the win in the Great American Race.

In recent years, Denny Hamlin has become the man to beat at Daytona as he has scored three Daytona 500 victories. Who will win the 2024 Daytona 500? That remains to be seen, but what we do know is that whoever it is, will do so in front of a capacity crowd.
