Took a tour of the legendary racetrack last week.

Only $20 for a one-hour tour which included time in the Gatorade Victory Lane and a close-up look of turns 3 and 4.

The speedway is a 2.5-mile tri-oval.

There's a 29-acre lake in the massive infield.

Huge grandstand was renovated in four stages at a cost of $400 million from 2013-16.

Grandstand holds more than 111,000 people and stands 17 stories high.

SUNOCO is the official fuel of the Daytona 500.

The turns are banked severely (some at 31 degrees) while the straightaways have only a slight incline (as low as 3 degrees).

No flat part of the track, not even the finish line.

In fact, the banking at the finish line is 18 degrees.

A Florida woman was arrested on Thursday for allegedly attacking her father and trying to grab his genitals after he refused to let her smoke his medical marijuana, The Smoking Gun reports.

Dakota DiRienzo, 22, allegedly lit up with anger because her dad, Luigi, had been sharing his pot with pals but not with his own daughter, the outlet reported.

They came to blows at his trailer park home in the town of Sebastian, just north of Vero Beach, cops alleged.

“Dakota attacked Luigi by pulling him down to the ground, and by attempting to grab his genitals,” according to the criminal complaint.

DiRienzo was arrested for misdemeanor battery and released from county jail Friday afternoon on $1,000 bond, according to TSG.
