"World's Largest" Daytona 500 Watch Party at

This event has already happened

Texas Motor Speedway is planning on its "World's Largest" Daytona 500 Watching Party getting even bigger this year.

Last year's highly successful event attracted in excess of 300 RVs and more than 3,000 campers and tailgaters to the Texas Motor Speedway infield for NASCAR's opening race weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The race was shown live on the world's largest TV known as "Big Hoss."

Given favorable weather, Texas Motor Speedway will look to top those numbers when the infield is opened Feb. 17-18 for fans to camp or tailgate for free and enjoy the racing action from Daytona on the mammoth 12-story tall, high-definition TV located on the backstretch.

There will also be pace car rides, a cornhole tournament and a Saturday night showing of Talladega Nights on Big Hoss.

The South Tunnel opens for campers/tailgaters at 8 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday
Saturday at 1:30 p.m. - Powershares QQQ 300 XFINITY Race
Saturday at 7 p.m. - Talladega Nights
Sunday at 1:30 p.m. - Daytona 500
