— In-game description.

The DAYTONA 500 was an event held from 16th February to 4th March which gave players an initial choice from 4 cars, Chevrolet SS (Hendrick Motorsports - 2016), Ford Fusion (Team Penske - 2016), TOYOTA Camry (Joe Gibbs Racing - 2016), and Chevrolet SS (Stewart-Haas Racing - 2016) to complete the 7 stages of the event. When the first car attempted in the special event, each stage was unlocked the next day. However, when a car was attempted second, third or fourth, all stages were unlocked straight away. If the player finished all of the stages, they could keep the car that the player chose with all modifications, upgrades and damage.

All the aforementioned cars have been added to NASCAR All-Star Series and their respective bonus series (Chase Elliott's Champion Cup, Joey Logano's Champion Cup, Matt Kenseth's Champion Cup and Kevin Harvick's Champion Cup) in the NASCAR category.

This event was added in the Daytona 500 Update (v4.1.5), along with Daytona International Speedway to coincide with the 58th Daytona 500.

While the event is mostly the same from one team to the next, there are a few differences (excepting obvious differences such as the car used):

  • Introduction from Chip McGee, which is in part linked to the Team chosen, varies when describing the real-life Team and in-game prizes available.
  • Description in Stage 01 Goal 1 varies the team mate chosen:
  • As these are four different events within one Special Event, Trophies are not shared, and the Leaderboards for Stage 02 Goal 2 are specific to the car used and times do not compete against cars in other Teams.
  • Recommended PR for Stage 07 Goal 6 is 54.6 for Hendrick Motorsports and Team Penske, but 54.7 for Joe Gibbs Racing and Stewart-Haas Racing.
  • Outro message from Chip McGee, and outro screen, vary when describing the real-life Team and in-game prizes won (car, series unlocked and discount on 2015 edition).
  • Some in-game text that prepares the player for the next goal, but isn't included in respective pages, mentions different team mates for some events and the Stage 07 Goal 6 includes licensed Sprint Cup drivers from those teams, completed by fictitious drivers if the Team has less than 4 drivers.
