Members of the Tampa Bay Section had a treat without tricks Halloween weekend in Daytona Beach. After starting with candy provided by Homewood Suites, the main event was a two-hour tour of Daytona International Speedway that included a stint in the media center for a mock drivers’ orientation, ttour of the grounds, and a visit to the new

stadium with multicolored seats and unobstructed views of the track. A short visit to the museum (plus gift shop, of course) and a casual lunch at the snack bar rounded out the

morning.

 

The afternoon included a tour of surprisingly unspoiled scenery in nearby Ormond Beach and tours of a chocolate factory - a repeat visit that weekend for some. After a

relaxing get together at the host hotel, everyone toured down the coast to a waterfront restaurant for a good meal and even better companionship..
