Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I buy spectator tickets for the 2023 Turkey Runs?
General admission tickets are available online 2 months before the event
or at the speedway during show days.
Spectator admission for the Spring Show is $15/day Fri and Sat, $10 Sun.
Admission for the Fall Show is $20/day Thurs-Sat, $15 Sunday. Children 11 and under free.
Are Turkey Run events held anywhere else but the Speedway?
No, there are no Turkey Run events held anywhere but the Daytona International Speedway. This is a large event and other promoters, hotels, bars, time share resorts, etc. may sponsor auto-themed festivities.
They may be called Turkey Trots, Turkeyfests, TurkeyCruises or whatever. They are not associated with the Turkey Run. Most of these folks want to give you another place to go in the evenings and spend a few bucks,
They are NOT part of the Turkey Run and cannot sell event tickets, registrations or souvenirs.
Can I put a For Sale sign on my vehicle in the Show Car field?
No, not until the Car Corral and Swap Meet sells out. We will announce when the Car Corral and Swap Meet sells out and then you will be able to display your sign. If you really want to sell your car, take it to the Car Corrall. There are serious buyers there!
Why do I need a special sticker to be in the Car Corral?
The Turkey Run Car Show is a separate event from other events at the Turkey Run. You will need a separate registration sticker for the Car Corral, Swap Meet or Artisan Alley.
What is included with my Swap Meet or Car Corral space?
Single space packages include one (1) Vendor Pass Decal, admission tickets for 2 adults per space (for vendor to enter) and a Gate Decal that designates the gate you are to enter each day. One (1) Support Vehicle Pass is available for $10. Multiple space packages include one (1) Vendor Pass Decal for every two (2) spaces purchased, admission tickets for 2 adults per space (for vendor to enter) and a Gate Decal that designates the gate you are to enter each day.

May I stay the night?

Vendors with RV’s must get an overnight parking ID card from Registration BEFORE 4pm the day of arrival. RV’s can stay overnight the first day of set up through 10am Monday. Please do not run generators during “Quiet Time” from 11pm - 6am. No tent camping or sleeping in vehicle.
Why do I see so many people on mobility scooters that look like they don't need them?
The ADA (Americans with Disability act) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities.
The law states that we CANNOT ask the type of disability of a person of any age that wants to rent a scooter.
Mobility scooters are available for rent inside the speedway on the backside of the Yellow Garage. Free ADA shuttles to the rental location are available at all spectator entrances. Availability is not guaranteed so we recommend reserving in advance by calling 423-569-1933 or visiting
Are personal Golf Carts and Bicycles allowed inside the speedway.
No, Personal Golf Carts or bicycles, (including electric foldable bicycles) are not allowed in the show area. Personal mobility devices are allowed. The general rule of thumb is that if you can take your mobility device in a grocery store or a Wal-Mart you can bring it into the speedway.
Car Show Entry Passes
All registered Car Show PARTICIPANTS are allowed to bring their car and contents into the Speedway infield. Four passengers max per car please. Additional "walk in" passes are included with your registration package to allow participants to walk in and out of the speedway during the show.
Reserved Club Parking for the Car show
Reserved Club Parking means that your club has reserved a group of spaces in advance and has a reserved location with your club's name on it. This enables your club to park together in the infield. All other participants park in the infield on a "first come-first served" basis. If your club didn't pre-reserve a spot, don't worry! You will park in the same infield as everyone else.
As a Car Show participant, do I have to be there every day? Can I come and go as I please?
You have complete control over what you do at the Turkey Run. You can be there as many or as few days as you please. You can come and go as many times as you want, but you must exit during the day through the east tunnel. You can leave your car inside the Speedway overnight but you must remove it by Monday at noon. Vendors are required to participate each day of the event.
If I register my '34 Ford but it's not ready, can I bring a different vehicle instead?
You can bring another vehicle that is a SHOW QUALITY CAR that conforms to the requirements .
Support Vehicles & Trailers
Support vehicles are NOT allowed in the infield area. Trailered cars are not allowed to unload inside the “car show” section of the speedway. If your vehicle doesn't run you will have no way to get it inside the speedway unless you bring a bunch of strong friends. All vehicles must be removed from the speedway by noon the following Monday after the show.
Spring Show schedule: Gate 70, Wednesday &Thursday 9am-9pm. Show days 7am-9pm.
