The crowd in Daytona set the bar very high for the 2018 Victory Weekend season! The 2,000 boisterous fans and the entire Victory Weekend team had an amazing time at the Brown’s Speedweeks Campground! We are grateful for the awesome folks at the campground, and we are looking forward to working with them again next year!

Levi Riggs and the Jess Zimmerman Band had the Victory Weekend stage absolutely rocking! Our dear friends, who are awesome artists, performed both nights and had the entire campground singing and dancing with them! We also had the chance to give away a custom American flag electric guitar autographed by the musicians. A company who firmly believes in what Victory Weekend does made both of these prizes possible.

On Saturday night, we took a moment to pause and show our appreciation to those selfless Americans who felt the calling to serve us all—our veterans, military personnel, and first responders. Vernon Zook spoke about their courage and offered a message of hope and love. In total, we honored 45 heroes with medals and a thunderous applause. Following this ceremony, Jess Zimmerman led in singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Everyone in attendance joined Jess during this great showing of appreciation and patriotism. Many of those who were honored were visibly touched as you could see the tears in their eyes. A simple thank you goes a long way!

Also in Daytona, we introduced a new element to the Victory Weekend experience. With the help of the great people at McGregor Race Simulators, fans had an opportunity to feel what it is like to be behind the wheel of a race car. Many fans tried this unique experience, and the feedback from them was nothing but positive. We are hoping to make the racing simulator a mainstay at all of the Victory Weekend events.

Overall, the Daytona event was a huge success. It was a great way to kick off our season, and it served as momentum for the rest of 2018! Thank you to the folks at Brown’s Speedweeks Campground; you welcomed us, and we cannot wait to see you again in 2019. Thank you race fans; our goal is to offer you a great time and to be better with every event!

We’ll see you in Bristol baby!
