Here at Back to the Roots, we are driven by a single goal; to keep racing history alive. The Back to the Roots Daytona Event is not affiliated with any organization. The event is produced and promoted by Main Street Station and a handful of dedicated racing enthusiasts and local businesses who are passionate about racing history and keeping it alive. 100% of the funds raised are donated to our local Halifax Historical Museum and the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
