Frustrated fans were forced to race to the airport

Frustrated fans were forced to race to the airport

The rescheduled Daytona 500 left some visitors feeling like they missed out because some had flights home during the race. As drivers began racing around the track, some people were racing to Daytona Beach International Airport. “It's annoying having to leave the track early,” said Kevin Osinski, who was visiting from Cleveland. The Great American Race has been postponed to Monday at 4pm after rain on Sunday. Uszynski was grateful to at least have the chance to catch the start of the race. “I saw like the first five or six laps and the planes were flying over us,” Osinski said. “I took one for the team, and I went and got all our stuff for me, my brother and my friend.” Chris Majchrzak and Alyssa Eaves were disappointed that they had to miss the race because they had to catch their plane back home to Connecticut. “Torturous listening from the airport,” Ives said. “It was absolutely devastating,” Majchrzak said. “We'll definitely be back next year. I came last year so I'm really upset. Chris Amrhein and Rebecca Arbona had to miss part of their first race, but they're still in good spirits. “It's absolutely fantastic,” Amrhein said. “We're here representing US Air Force. “Weather is something you can deal with. Having been in the military for so long, it's something you plan for and then work on a secondary plan and the team was able to do that.” An unforgettable Central Florida experience with them as they return home to San Antonio. “It was a great first opportunity,” Arbona said. “Despite the weather, we had a great time. The weather was beautiful today, so I think everything was fine.” People planning to return next year for the race say they will definitely come prepared. “I will take Monday and Tuesday off next year instead of Friday and Monday,” Majchrzak said. Some people who missed the race plan to contact NASCAR so they can redeem their ticket and use it for next year's Daytona 500.
