3. We will provide the Canadian Heroes Car to get you to Daytona and back.
4. Accommodations at Daytona will be provided.
The 4 lucky soldiers will depart Hamilton in the Canadian Heroes Memorial Car Feb 9th and drive to Daytona.
Once at Daytona they will enjoy 10 days of a life changing experience at the most famous ( and newly paved) racetrack in the world.
Racing starts Feb 12 with the kick-off of the ARCA season.
Also on Feb 12, you will watch the historic Bud Shoot-out!!!!!

Feb 17th will have the Gatorade Duels, two races that day to determine the starting grid for the 500
