Nascar handles race car accidents at the Daytona 500 the same way they do at every other track they go to.

Once the track is in racing condition, they will wave the green flag and the cars will start to race again.

Where does the Daytona 500 take place?

You're not going to like this answer, although it's true. The best seats for the Daytona 500 are at whatever sports bar in town has the biggest television. Daytona International Speedway is so big a person who attends the race can only see about half of it, and it's cold outside. I love NASCAR but I wouldn't attend the Daytona 500 even with a free ticket.
