Sheltair's Daytona International Airport FBO prepares to welcome NASCAR fans

A welcome sign of winter: the checkered flag

If there is one good thing to say about winter, it's the return of NASCAR action at Daytona Speedway in Florida, which is why Sheltair's FBO facility at Daytona International Airport (DAB) is preparing to welcome a grateful audience that seeks the roar of horsepower and the smell of competition tires on asphalt.

Come January 28th and 29th, NASCAR is offering fans the first of the season's competitions: the grueling "Rolex 24" endurance race which is described as "a sunrise to sunset marathon that is merciless on both driver and machine as sleep-starved crews perform mechanical miracles."

In anticipation of the endurance race, auto race fans from across the country have already begun to book their charter flights so that they may taxi in to Sheltair's DAB ramp and quickly walk or take a shuttle to the Daytona International Speedway.

Frank Seymour, Sheltair's Senior Vice President, stated, "Our guests are always pleased to find themselves so close to the speedway and only a short drive away from everything Daytona Beach has to offer. Flight crews give us high marks for our support amenities such as a flight planning and weather rooms, conference rooms, WIFI and complimentary refreshments and, equally important, our ability to service flights during a high traffic event."

Seymour says the speedway is so close they can hear the sound of high performance race cars from their Sheltair offices at the airport. "There is no mistaking the sound of America's premier endurance race. Just hearing those engines gets your adrenalin going, but it's our job to make sure our passengers arrive safely and in style. "
