Daytona Beach police say they had to deal with several parking lot parties.
"Our other events are used to Daytona Beach and they've learned how to be good guests. This is a new event and they have not fit in well with what we expect," the mayor said.
Some residents say the event doesn’t bother them and that the loud couple of nights are to be expected when you live in the area.
The city says they have shared their concerns with event organizers and the Speedway. The future of the event will be discussed at a city commission meeting on Wednesday.
