Daytona Turkey Run 2019

Daytona Turkey Run 2019

Daytona Turkey Run Logo

There are many Thanksgiving traditions like eating turkey and getting together with family and friends. But here’s one you might not have tried: the Daytona Turkey Run. And if you haven’t been to it, you really should check it out.

One of the cool things about it, is, it’s held right on the famous Daytona Speedway. You know the one I’m talking about… The one where all those NASCAR buggies whip around and around for 500 miles of fancy racing.

This year’s event takes place starting November 28th and keeps going right through to December 1st. Cars and sunshine, you just can’t beat it. Especially when you see what we have to deal with here in Detroitsville, USA.

So where would you rather be? At your snow covered, cold, cold house, arguing with your family over who get’s the last drum stick; or hanging out in the warm sunshine of Florida, checking out cool rides while you imbibe a brew or two? That’s what I thought.
