DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The recently released Manpower Employment Outlook Survey from ManpowerGroup found that more employers in Volusia County plan to hire workers in Quarter 1 2014 than in any other part of the country. DAYTONA Rising — the massive $400 million redevelopment project at Daytona International Speedway — was cited as a key source of expected growth in the construction industry which led local industries for the upcoming quarter. This represents the first time that Volusia County has led the country in Manpower’s hiring forecast.
“For more than 50 years, Daytona International Speedway has served as a key economic pillar in Volusia County,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “DAYTONA Rising enables us to continue creating opportunities for our talented and hard-working local business partners. This is an exciting time for our community.”
The DAYTONA Rising project broke ground in July 2013 and will be completed in time for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and DAYTONA 500.

About DAYTONA Rising
DAYTONA Rising is a $400 million reimagining of an American icon – Daytona International Speedway. Five expanded and redesigned entrances, or “injectors,” will lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to three different concourse levels. Each level features spacious social areas, or “neighborhoods,” along the nearly mile-long frontstretch. At the conclusion of the redevelopment, Daytona International Speedway will have approximately 101,000 permanent, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. In addition, the Speedway will feature over 60 luxury suites with track side views and a completely revamped hospitality experience for corporate guests.
DAYTONA Rising: Reimagining an American Icon, expected to create 6,300 jobs, $300 million in labor income and over $80 million in tax revenue, will be completed in time for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and DAYTONA 500. DAYTONA Rising was recently cited as a key source of expected job growth in Volusia County as part of the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.

About Daytona International Speedway
Daytona International Speedway is the home of "The Great American Race" - the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening NASCAR Sprint Cup event garners most of the attention - as well as the largest audience in motorsports - the approximately 500-acre motorsports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe, thus earning it the title of "World Center of Racing." In addition to eight major weekends of racing activity, rarely a week goes by that the Speedway grounds are not used for events that include civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
