The 2018 NASCAR season has just begun, but it was already an eventful year from the getting-to-know-you stage. There were significant rule changes and a total revamp of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) and Xfinity Series (MXFINITY) cars. The sport went all-in on technology, too, with the introduction of a new Performance Data Recorder (PDR) system, all-digital dashboards, and more advanced aerodynamics. These changes made for an exciting season – one that delivered a record-breaking 32% rise in Facebook views per hour and a 37% increase in Twitter traffic compared to last year.
If you’re a racing fan, then you’ll want to keep up with all the newest NASCAR news and gossip all year long. Luckily, we’ve got you covered on this front. Here’s a quick overview of how to get to Meteo Speedway Spyro in 2018:
If you’re not driving, then the best way to get to Meteo Speedway is by boat. And what type of boat do you use to get to Meteo Speedway? You guessed it – a yacht! Specifically, the new Speedboat 310 offered by Premier Yacht Sales. The boat is equipped with two engines – a 2,300 horsepower (1,800kW) Mercury Racing triple-expansion turbocharged engine and a 2,100 horsepower (1,700kW) Volvo Penta engine – which allow you to cruise at a top speed of 35 knots (39mph; 63km/h), propelled by two crewmembers seated comfortably in the cockpit. The 310 is the largest yacht in the world and can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests for extended cruises. What’s more, the yacht features an onboard chef, a private pool, a fitness center with beach club access, and an entertainment system with a JVC KD450i underwater camera. You’ll love what a Speedboat 310 has to offer.
If you live in North America, then you can fly to Daytona Beach International Airport (IDA), where you’ll find direct connections to all major cities. One convenient way to get to Meteo Speedway from the east coast is via Delta Airlines. They currently offer nonstop flights from New York City (JFK) to Daytona Beach year-round, so you can always get there without having to stop over en route. Another great option is America’s largest air carrier, United Airlines, which offers a similar service from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Denver International Airport (DEN). The best part about these travel options is that you don’t need a passport to enter the country. You simply need to show ID. So, if you ever visit the beautiful state of Florida to see a NASCAR race, then travel options will be easier to find than you think. If you want to fly directly to Meteo Speedway from another US airport, then you’ll need to make a stop in either Atlanta or Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, as Delta and United don’t operate direct services between those two cities.
If you’re driving your own car, then the best way to get to Meteo Speedway is through the Hendrick Woods Resort entrance, located in the southeastern suburbs of Atlanta. The entrance is close to the highway (I-285), so make sure you’re in good stead with traffic before you attempt to enter the sports car arena. You can also enter NASCAR via I-75 in Georgia or I-77 in North Carolina. You’ll need to use an online directory to find parking spaces, available during the weekdays before the race.
Trains are another way to get to Meteo Speedway. You can take the Georgia Railroad Authority (GRA) to Hendrick Woods, as there is a train stop right outside the entrance. You can also take the MARC (Maryland Rail Commission) from Washington D.C. to Raleigh-Durham, where you can connect with the NS Railroad. Trains are a more convenient option for longer road trips than driving a car, and they’re also eco-friendly, as they emit fewer pollutants. Trains are also quieter than cars, which makes long road trips more pleasant for everyone involved. If you’re driving to the sport, then choose a train over a plane in terms of speed and fuel economy – not to mention the enjoyable ride itself.
Greyhound is the primary carrier for long-distance trips to/from Florida, so if you have a bus ticket to North Carolina or another southern state, then you can get off in the Daytona Beach area and take a stroll to Meteo Speedway. As for traveling to/from other parts of the country, many large carriers like American Airlines and United Airlines operate direct services to/from major cities, so you don’t necessarily need to stop off in another state to make your way there. You can get a bus ticket from most major cities to Daytona Beach, where you’ll find the nearest airport.
In sum, there are numerous ways to get to Meteo Speedway. You can arrive by boat from Canada or Europe via the Port of Baltimore, or fly in from other parts of the country. If you’re driving, then head south on I-75 or I-77 through Georgia or North Carolina, where you’ll find plenty of on-ramps. If you’re taking the bus or the train, then get a ticket to Daytona Beach. You can also enter NASCAR via Hendrick Woods or from I-285 in Georgia, as there are many convenient ramps leading to the venue. If you’re entering the circuit via I-75 in Georgia or I-77 in North Carolina, then get off at Exit 19 and follow the signs to the speedway. Good luck out there on the track! And don’t forget – if you want to make this trip memorable, then rent a yacht from the Captain Skipchuck, as he will certainly make your stay more enjoyable. What type of yacht are you looking for? A superyacht for an unforgettable experience, or a luxury yacht for a more private getaway?
