The Performance Racing Network (PRN) announced today that it will continue its season kickoff celebration from Daytona Beach, FL with a new show and new location. "Fast Talk from Daytona Beach" presented by Outback Steakhouse is a free event for fans that will take place at the Outback Steakhouse across from Daytona International Speedway February 19 and February 20, 2014 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
For over 20 years the Performance Racing Network has held a presence in Daytona with "PRN Up to Speed" from the Volusia Mall, one of the most popular free events on the calendar for NASCAR fans. After some tweaks to the Daytona Speedweeks schedule demanded a change, PRN decided to expand its relationship with an already outstanding partner, Outback Steakhouse.Â
"Outback and PRN have had a great partnership for several years and I am excited that we can expand that relationship and reward our fans in the process," said Doug Rice, President of PRN. "Every year I look forward to giving the fans the opportunity to see and hear from their favorite drivers up close and this partnership allows us to continue that tradition."
"I can't think of a better way for NASCAR fans to kick off the 2014 season than seeing their favorite driver on Fast Talk Live," said Karen Soots, VP Media Services for Outback Steakhouse. "We are pleased to have the shows originate from our Daytona Beach Outback Steakhouse and this is a great way to introduce fans to our "Happy Bloomin' Monday" promotion that offers a free Bloomin' Onion with purchase on Mondays following a Kevin Harvick top 10 finish."
The two-day event will take place at the Outback Steakhouse located at 1735 W. International Speedway Blvd. in Daytona Beach FL. Just a short walk from Daytona International Speedway, "Fast Talk from Daytona Beach" will be a great event for fans already in town for Speedweeks to put on their calendar.
