Yes, according to the Daytona Speedway:

The Speedway recognizes the importance of service animals in assisting guests with visual and other impairments are welcomed throughout the property. A service animal is defined by the ADA as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. Tasks performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability.

The ADA requires that service animals are under the control of the handler at all times.

  • The service animal must be leashed, harnessed or tethered at all times, unless these would hinder the service the service animal is trained to perform.
  • If a service animal behaves in a way that poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others, has a history of such behavior, or is not under the control of the handler, that animal may be excluded.

Guests are responsible for caring for and supervising the service animal, including toileting (bringing their own pet waste disposal bags), feeding, grooming and veterinary care.

Guests who bring service animals may request wheelchair seating to accommodate the service animal safely and comfortably.
