Of course it would be cheaper to just buy airfare to Daytona and tickets to the race than the $2,400 to $7,000 a first-time 3D watcher needs to shell out for a 3D-compatible TV or computer and the necessary silly glasses accessory. Still, when you count the cost of refreshments at the race, it's probably a wash.
