LOS ANGELES - Before you park in front of your television for the Daytona 500, check out these free-to-stream movies on Tubi to help rev up your mood.
Forty engines will roar for the 500-mile-long NASCAR race that will take place Sunday, Feb. 14. at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The event will look differently this year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers will limit seating inside the venue to allow attendees to socially distance themselves. Fans will be screened and face coverings will be required.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t watch from home, and Tubi’s collection of movies about racing will get you and your family primed to take in the big race:
