The renovation project will replace the lower grandstand seating in the DePalma and Oldfield Grandstands (located near Turn 4) as well as the Segrave, Keech and Lockhart Grandstands (located near Turn 1) with chair seats with arm rests. In addition, all risers and walkways will be replaced with new aluminum. New and additional handicap ramps and stairs will provide access to seating as well.
The grandstand renovations will also create new open areas underneath the grandstands for additional concession/souvenir kiosks.
“These renovations will enhance the race fan’s experience at Daytona International Speedway,” Track President Robin Braig said. “We’re very cognizant of our ‘Fans ’R’ 1st At Daytona’ program and we’re always looking for new opportunities to make the race fan’s visit to ‘The World Center of Racing’ more memorable.”
