2012 Daytona 500 date – when is the Daytona 500 in 2012?

The date for the 2012 Daytona 500 was announced on Sunday, with the 54th Annual Daytona 500 scheduled to take place on February 26th, 2012

Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said in a statement: “The decision to kick-off to the NASCAR racing season one week later was made in close partnership with the sanctioning body, our broadcast partners including FOX, community partners and others within the industry.

“This move shortens the racing season by one week, which is something the teams and competitors will surely enjoy, and it eliminates the off-weekend typically scheduled in March, which many fans and media partners have said created a drop in momentum in the early part of the racing season.

“We also know some of our great fans like to plan their visit to the ‘World Center of Racing’ well in advance so we are announcing the 2012 date much earlier in the season to minimize any inconveniences in planning their visit.”

The dates of Daytona International Speedway’s other racing events that comprise Speedweeks, in addition to the motorcycle events in March, will be announced in the near future.
