Daytona 500, What time to arrive?

I know the answer is the earlier the better, but what time is reasonable now that the race is at 3PM? I used to go to the race when it was at noon, and I would try to get there before 9AM and rarely had a problem parking. Now that it is at 3PM, how early do you need to get there to find a parking place? Any ideas?

Well I'm one of those that likes all the nonsense that goes on before the race, so last year I think my friend and I were there before 8am...that was kinda early lol. But we spent the time going to breakfast. By the time we were done the trailers were open. I would say no later than 10:30.

Go Bowyer!!
