New York - In anticipation of NASCAR's biggest event, the DAYTONA 500, one of the sport's most recognizable faces, Danica Patrick, and four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon welcome fans to a two-day, pre-race party on the sands of Daytona Beach, celebrating the Great American Race like never before.

Headlined by a musical performance from Grammy award-winning artist Cee Lo Green, the inaugural DAYTONA 500 BASH AT THE BEACH is a springboard for the greatest weekend in motor sports. Famed Miami Heat disc jockey, DJ Irie delivers a musical backdrop to the special with appearances by drivers Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Miss Sprint Cup and other VIP guests interviewed backstage by Trotta.

"The Daytona 500 Bash at the Beach is a great opportunity for us to align with our advertising partners and race fans to showcase a new integrated method of presenting NASCAR," said Neil Mulcahy, executive vice president, FOX Sports sales. "The combination of multi-media and on-site event marketing elements have really kick started our sales efforts, putting NASCAR on FOX at the forefront of first and second quarter media plans."

In addition, the fan-viewing party includes autograph sessions with NASCAR drivers and VIP guests, a gaming lounge highlighted by Oculus Virtual Reality technology simulating NASCAR driving, a social media concierge and free giveaways for those in attendance.
