SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- The winner of the Daytona 500 Sprint Cup race will be honored Feb. 17 during a midday rally in San Francisco.

The race will be run Feb. 14 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla.

NASCAR and the Infineon Raceway, site of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 June 18-20, said in a release the Daytona winner will meet with race fans and take a victory tour through the streets of San Francisco on a cable car, which will travel to the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The tour will wind up at Willie Mays Plaza, which is named for the Hall of Fame baseball player.

"This was a really fun day and I was amazed at all of the fans out there," said Matt Kenseth, who attended the city's first victory tour after he won the rain-shortened Daytona 500 last year.

"I got to see a lot of San Francisco, so it was great."
