Learn more at: www.speedwayindiana.com/visit/main-street

We've got the green light to get down!  Join the Daxko pit crew for a Victory Lap at NAYDO 2019. We'll get in gear at the Dallara IndyCar Factory, where you can grab a drink and a bite to eat while you get an inside look at how Indy cars are made. You can't win a race on the first lap, so make sure you stick around for music and more! Get behind the wheel at a Daxko Dash simulator station where fastest laps win prizes throughout the night! 

Make a pit stop at the Daxko Booths (29-32) for your party pass and an entry to win a limited number of race car rides! Start your engines; we'll see you on the track!


Helpful Tip: This venue is not walking distance so buses will be on a continuous loop from the JW Marriott to the Dallara IndyCar Factory located on Main Street in Speedway, Indiana - an area with restaurants, bars and shops if you prefer to make the Dallara IndyCar Factory your stop just for appetizers or dessert. Though enough food for dinner will be provided at the party, we realize that some attendees may want to dine elsewhere.
