Orlando Pride, Racing Louisville draw at Daytona Soccer Fest

DAYTONA BEACH – Orlando Pride and Racing Louisville delivered a fun, comprehensive conclusion to the inaugural Daytona Soccer Fest.

In a nationally televised regular-season game at Daytona International Speedway — on a natural turf field built earlier in the week — Orlando and Louisville shared the points in a 2-2 draw Sunday night.

Players not only enjoyed the prime-time spotlight, but also the unique aura of the famous Superspeedway.

“Honestly, it was better than I expected – and I expected good things,” said Orlando Pride defender Celia Jiménez Delgado, one of three players who attended the inaugural Daytona Soccer Fest press conference in April. “When you say, ‘We’re going to build a field overnight,’ and I have an engineering background, that’s challenging. Let’s face it. When I stepped onto the field today, I thought, ‘This is amazing.’ “
