Daytona International Speedway's huge set of Juevos!

I would tend to reckon that this is more of a public service announcement courtesy of yours truly. About this time every spring, I receive an email asking me to reserve my seats for the following year's Daytona 500. As usual, this went without exception. The message stays in my inbox for a couple of weeks before I decide to act upon it, but something pulled me in today. I clicked on the link, and began to read the fine print. This, my friends, is where Daytona International Speedway has gained, in my opinion, some un- earned audacity.

They are proud to announce that if your profile is still on record with them as of time to reserve for the 2010 Daytona 500, they will automatically renew your ticket package and charge the credit card you have on file with them! Sure, those of us who have profiles with DIS have plenty of time to change our settings for this feature, but after the flop they called the "50th running of the Great American Race", it takes an enormous set of man milk makers to issue such a notice...in my opinion, anyway.

Continuing with similar subject matter, I recieved a form letter from Robin Braig from good ol' Daytona International Speedway. Apparently, they are soliciting fan feedback regarding issues that arose courtesy of this year's 500. Such concerns as free parking and amenities have been brought to their attention. Now I've been going to Daytona for many years now and if it's one area they totally kick ass at, it's access and egress. I've never had to wait more than 45 minutes to exit, the last three years I literally haven't had to wait at all! However, they did donkey punch us the year we showed up and the huge lots on the airport property were now a $30 rape charge brought to you by the Boy Scouts of America when it use to be free! Don't get me wrong, I support the scouts, however a warning would have been nice. AND, after sending an email to their public service folks, I did receive an apology...for what it's worth! Other than that, I can't see, facility-wise, what people had to complain about. Though there is enough concern to prompt DIS to send a form letter to every ticket holder. So, if you have a concern, email them at Daytona500fanfeedback@... .

So, no big rant this week, not much on the conspiracy theory front, just wanted to let the readers know what to look out for if you're a ticket holder to Daytona!
