Now that's a good pointߘ I didn't even think of it! Mmmmmmmmm Green Card.
I'll speak to one of my fellow photographers/rivals as he whose been to see how he got acreditation/work visa.
You can come to the US as a tourist on holiday or any other flavor that suits you and go to Daytona to shoot. The track will not ask you for green cards, work permits, insurance certificates, or anything beyond who is credentialing you. Big brother really isn't checking up on stuff like that. I have friends from the UK that have come over to shoot races without requiring anything beyond legal entry into this country.
Depending who is putting the event together, you may need to go through them but I think you will ultimately need to get a legitimate media outlet to request a credential for you via the track. As long as you have a real media outlet making the request, you shouldn't run into any issues.
