About NASCAR Daytona Shootout Daytona Beach Tickets

Daytona Shootout was originally called ‘Busch Clash’ and had 2.5 miles per lap. Currently, its format is to have an opening segment of 25-laps and to follow it with a finishing race of 50-laps. The race doesn’t earn the winner any championship points but he gets a large cash prize instead. This encourages a unique driving style that is not common in other seasonal races. A maximum of twenty-eight cars are allowed in this event, whereas other regular events have forty-three cars. Even the lineup is decided through a completely random draw instead of time trials that are used for deciding the lineup of other races.

Some of the past winners are Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin, Dale Jarrett, Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin, Jeff Gordon, Rusty Wallace and Ken Schrader. This year, Kyle Busch won the race and last year, the winner was Kurt Busch.
