DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 22, 2019) – Bluegreen Vacations Corporation (“Bluegreen Vacations”), a leading vacation ownership company, was announced today as the entitlement sponsor for the 150-mile qualifying races for the DAYTONA 500 at Daytona International Speedway, part of DAYTONA Speedweeks Presented By AdventHealth.

“The qualifying races for the DAYTONA 500 have been an integral part of Speedweeks since the inaugural ‘Great American Race’ in 1959,” said Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile. “The qualifiers’ history is rich and now we’re beginning a new chapter of that history, thanks to Bluegreen Vacations.”
“The Bluegreen Vacations Duel At DAYTONA will continue one of our cherished traditions,” Wile said.
Based in Boca Raton, Florida, Bluegreen Vacations markets and sells vacation ownership interests and manages resorts in top leisure and urban destinations.
“Having just been a sponsor of the Bluegreen Vacations 500, a thrilling semi-final race of the 2019 NASCAR season, we are proud to be title sponsor of the highly anticipated kick-off duels for the 2020 season,” said Ahmad M. Wardak, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Bluegreen Vacations. “We are pleased to be a proud supporter of NASCAR and look forward to sharing more of these experiences with our vacation owners.”
