DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Ticket demand for Sunday's Daytona 500 hit an all-time low on the secondary market.

The average ticket price has fallen more than 30 percent in the last month from a peak of $238 per ticket on Jan. 20 to $161 on Feb. 19, according to the website SeatGeek, which tracks prices.

This year's average ticket price of $161 is down 18 percent from the last year's Daytona 500, which drew an average of $197 per ticket on the resale market.

The race drew average ticket prices of $191 in 2012 and $203 in 2011.

The website said Campbell Box seats at the finish line that had been going for about $450 apiece in late January could be had on Wednesday for $199 per ticket.
