Fans prepare for Coke Zero 400 race at Daytona International Speedway

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Speedway workers aren't the only people setting up for a big weekend at the Daytona International Speedway.

In the infield of the race track, thousands of people are setting up their campgrounds.

Barry Lloyd of Tampa has been coming to Daytona for nine years and has quite the set up this year - complete with three pools, four campers, a Tiki bar, and a dance floor is on the way.

"It's just full of entertainment. We have kid activities, racing, the fan zone, and we go outside the track. We do everything it takes to have a good time," said Lloyd.

For Lloyd it's not just the racing that makes this week fun, but he says its all about the kids.

Bruce Brege and his wife have been coming to Daytona for six years from Fort Walton Beach and are putting the finishing touches on their infield campsite.

"We're setting our camper up, getting our pool going and we're going to relax for the next few days and then we're going to watch some Nationwide and Sprint Cup racing." said Brege.

But for Brege family, it's the fan camaraderie that brings him back every year.

"This is awesome. People are so close, we get to know so many people and it's just a great time," Brege said.

The Coke Zero 400 is Saturday and starts at 7:30 p.m.
