Daytona International Speedway (DIS) unveiled today the complete list of new hospitality options available as part of its new motorsports stadium. Beginning in January 2016, DIS will feature more than 60 luxury suites with breathtaking trackside views, patio and club seat options and a completely revamped hospitality experience.
“DAYTONA Rising is enabling us to elevate our hospitality offerings,” said Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III. “By moving all hospitality from a temporary outdoor village to a new climate-controlled permanent environment, we’re able to deliver a world-class experience.”
The suites and hospitality offerings will debut during the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and the 58th annual DAYTONA 500. More information is available by calling 866-887-6475.
New offerings include:
MEZZANINE LEVEL SUITES
Two new premium suite products along the frontstretch have the flexibility to accommodate anywhere from 50 to 500 people. In the 31 climate-controlled High Banks Suites, seats are located directly outside of the suite, providing fans with the comfort of a private space and opportunity to see the on-track action. The 25 Midway Suites are ideal for larger groups, providing access to a fully-stocked bar and high-end concession options on the Mezzanine concourse level as well as reserved stadium seats.
ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA LOUNGE SUITES

The interior of the suite features a relaxing seating area with flat-screen televisions at every angle while the outdoor area offers a patio and stadium seats.
SKY LEVEL SUITES
The indoor theater-style seating in the Sky Suites provides optimum views of the track. The relaxing, stylish atmosphere is perfect for entertaining friends, coworkers or clients.

Earl and the trophy given to the DAYTONA 500 champion each year, Harley J’s includes the essential amenities every fan enjoys: an all-inclusive fully-stocked bar and buffet. This option is available as part of an all-inclusive program with reserved stadium seats or as an addition to any stadium seat purchase.

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 101,500 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 trackside 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 $85 million in tax revenue, will be completed in time for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and DAYTONA 500.
Toyota, Florida Hospital, Chevrolet and Sunoco are Founding Partners of DAYTONA Rising, joining the Speedway to help provide the very best experience for fans through more than 80,000 total square feet of engagement areas, branding rights for four of the injectors/entrances and four of the new neighborhoods.

About Daytona International SpeedwayDaytona 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.
