Daytona Beach - City Highlights

[ARCHIVED] Annual event draws thousands of truck enthusiasts to Daytona Beach

Trucks on Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach

The 2021 Daytona Truck Meet – billed as the largest truck show in the world – is scheduled to begin Friday and end Sunday. The event is expected to draw more than 5,000 custom trucks and more than 35,000 spectators to the Daytona Beach area.

The greatest concentration of traffic is expected to be around Daytona International Speedway and One Daytona. Events will take place at the Speedway between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. One Daytona has events until midnight through the weekend.

Once the events conclude, there is expected to be traffic congestion along Atlantic Avenue/A1A, as has been normal during past versions of this event.

Police and traffic control officers will be on-duty in the area of the Speedway and along Atlantic /A1A to assist with event traffic and local traffic. In addition, the city’s Public Works staff have been placing signage on beachside streets to help prevent truck meet attendees from driving through the neighborhoods. 

DBPD issues beachside access passes

People who live or work on the beachside in Daytona Beach are encouraged to pick up a pink pass from the Daytona Beach Police Department, which has reinstated a public safety procedure for when traffic backs up during large special events. The Police Department is issuing pink passes to people who live or work on the beachside so that if the bridges are backed up, people with passes will still be able to access their homes or places of employment via the Main Street Bridge. 

A couple of important points about the passes: 

  • The "Pink P" is designed to work like a pass for locals who want to get on beachside quickly via Main Street without having to deal with the special event traffic from the high-rise bridges at ISB, Seabreeze or Orange.
  • If you don't have a "Pink P", you will not be able to use the eastbound lane of the Main Street Bridge during special events. That side of the bridge will be reserved for those with the "Pink P."
  • The Police Department does not plan to shut down any of the beachside bridges. The only time that might happen is if there's a safety issue.

The pink passes can be picked up 24/7 from the Police Department Headquarters at 129 Valor Blvd. or from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at the Police Department’s Beachside Precinct at 510 Harvey Ave. Persons receiving a pink pass will need to show proof of beachside residency or employment. The pink pass should be displayed on dashboards when needed. For more information, visit DBPD’s website at or call (386) 671-5100.
