The 500 crowd is considerably down from years past. Lots of orange cones and traffic officers, but little traffic. Don't expect bike week to be much different. The last few years have been dwindling. Biketoberfest was lack luster, hopefully thats not a guage of bike week this year. The Cabbage Patch is an experiance, Boot Hill and the other bars on US 1 heading out of Ormond Beach toward Destination Daytona are pretty much dives, and Ormond Beach PD has little sense of humor during the events. The vintage and flat track races are the most fun, and you can always get a day pass at the gate for the infield fairly cheap. Plus its nice to ride your bike onto the infield, park and watch the vintage races. There is always at least on bike during a heat catch fire. Be carefull taking the scenic routes, especially up Dixie Highway, Volusia County SO are always running radar around the state park, Bunnell PD camps out at US 100 and HWY 11, and Flagler Beach PD runs radar on A1A.
