Dash at Daytona

Returning in 2022, the Ignite Dash at Daytona heads back to Florida with two classes: Ignite Senior and Masters – all run separately. Tired of starting off each new year shoveling snow? Change it up – get on track this year and start the year off right. The Ignite program ran with great success in 2018 and 2020 saw over 200 Ignite entries.  Ditch the cold weather and get on track this December!
