Daytona International Speedway kicked off the holiday season Nov. 16 with Magic of Lights, a dazzling 1.5-mile drive-thru holiday-lights experience that will benefit Florida Hospital’s pediatric patients.
From the comfort of a car, the community can enjoy spectacular displays using the latest LED technology and digital animations. The experience will include a drive behind Daytona International Speedway’s Ticket and Tours Building, through the state-of-the-art motorsports facility, and will conclude in the Midway display area.
Magic of Lights made its debut at Daytona International Speedway last year, and is an affordable and entertaining holiday-light sightseeing outing for families, couples and groups.
Among the new light displays for 2018 is a reindeer crossing, where Santa’s sled team jumps over guests’ vehicles, the 200-foot Candy Cane Lane, and the Snowflake Forest.
The Magic of Lights experience is open through Dec. 31.
Advance tickets are on sale at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or at 1-800-PITSHOP. The price for standard-sized vehicles is $20 per car in advance, $25 per car at the gate weekdays (Monday through Thursday), or $30 on weekends (Friday through Sunday). Prices are higher for oversized vehicles such as limousines or vans for 15 passengers or more. Tour buses cannot be accommodated.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit young patients at the Florida Hospitals in Volusia and Flagler counties. The 2017 event raised more than $18,500 to support pediatric services for children at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
Magic of Lights is produced by a team of family entertainment professionals at FunGuys Events, each with decades of international show experience at the highest level.

Other venues include: Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, California (Los Angeles); Jones Beach State Park, Wantagh, New York (NYC); Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, Berea, Ohio (Cleveland); PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, New Jersey; Castrol Raceway, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; and Wesley Clover Parks, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
