Approximately 50,000 New Seats Available for the Independence Day Holiday Classic; Race Fans to Receive Sneak Preview of New Amenities

2015 Coke Zero 400

On Friday, Oct. 24 at 9 a.m. (ET), tickets go on sale for the 57th annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race scheduled for Sunday, July 5.

Fans will be able to purchase tickets to the Independence Day holiday weekend classic in one of three convenient ways:

The 2015 Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola will be one of the most unique event experiences staged at Daytona International Speedway. Approximately 50,000 new frontstretch seats will be available for the 2015 Independence Day holiday weekend event with 40,000 seats located on the west side of the structure, from Turn 1 toward the center of the track, while 10,000 seats will be located in Turn 4.

Fans seated in both locations will enjoy new amenities being created by DAYTONA Rising, including new and additional concessions and restrooms, the Speedway’s first-ever escalators and vertical transportation options, and several new “neighborhood” areas where they can socialize without missing any of the on-track action.

The 2015 Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola Weekend will take place during a crucial period in the DAYTONA Rising construction process, during which the bulk of the frontstretch construction initiatives are scheduled to take place. The remaining seating areas will not be available to guests as they will be under construction.

“Next year’s Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola is going to be a special event as we’ll be able to give a sneak preview of what our DAYTONA Rising project will deliver to fans,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “During the Independence Day holiday weekend, race fans are going to be able to experience all the new amenities of the stadium. However, with the limited number of seats available, we are expecting high ticket demand and encourage guests to make their plans earlier than usual.”

Frontstretch grandstand seats for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola start at $55. Reserved grandstand seats for children ages 12 and under are $10 and kids 12 and under are free in the Sprint FANZONE.

The Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola will feature 43 stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series battling for a coveted victory in the 160-lap, 400-mile race, which will be capped off by the largest fireworks show in the Southeast.

Tickets to the Subway Firecracker 250 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday night, July 4, are also available for purchase on Friday, Oct. 24.

Tickets for NASCAR’s biggest, richest and most prestigious race – the 57th annual Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 22 – can also be purchased at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.

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. 

Toyota recently became the first Founding Partner of DAYTONA Rising, joining the Speedway to help provide the very best experience for fans through over 20,000 square feet of engagement area, branding rights for the Toyota Injector and one of the new neighborhoods. 

Barton Malow is serving as the design-builder for the project. In addition to DAYTONA Rising, Barton Malow has renovated the University of Michigan “Big House” and the Rose Bowl. 

ROSSETTI, an award-winning architectural design and planning firm for the past 40 years, which headed the design for Ford Field NFL Stadium, University of Notre Dame Compton Family Ice Arena and five Major League Soccer Stadiums, is leading the master planning of the DAYTONA Rising site. 

Race fans can follow the progress of the DAYTONA Rising project by visiting www.DAYTONARising.com and connecting with Daytona International Speedway on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.  Also, fans can see the construction project up close by taking one of the daily tours available at the Speedway on non-event days throughout the year.

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.

Oct 15 | DAYTONA Rising October Update: Daytona International Speedway Installs Highest Piece of Steel As Part of Topping Out Ceremony

SHARE

“We’re literally building history and creating an unprecedented motorsports experience. I can only imagine how exciting it must have been for my grandfather to turn his vision into reality when he built the Speedway more than 50 years ago” said France Kennedy.

Topping Out

Daytona International Speedway held a topping out ceremony today to install the highest piece of steel associated with its $400 million DAYTONA Rising project and celebrate the halfway point in the project. Florida Secretary of Commerce Gray Swoope and Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Director Jesse Panuccio were in attendance for the important milestone.  

As part of the event, members of the France family signed and unveiled a special commemorative plaque that was placed at the center of the steel beam (previously signed by the project’s construction team). International Speedway Corporation CEO Lesa France Kennedy also spoke about the significance of the DAYTONA Rising project.   

“Daytona International Speedway is a special place and we’re honored to continue its legacy through the DAYTONA Rising project,” said France Kennedy. “We’re literally building history and creating an unprecedented motorsports experience. I can only imagine how exciting it must have been for my grandfather to turn his vision into reality when he built the Speedway more than 50 years ago.”  

Utilizing special DAYTONA Rising whistles, Barton Malow (design-builder for DAYTONA Rising) joined International Speedway Corporation employees as well as Daytona International Speedway employees and longtime ticket holders for a ceremonial command to raise the steel beam. To honor construction traditions, a tree was attached to the beam along with a massive American flag, Florida's state flag as well as flags honoring Daytona International Speedway and Barton Malow. 

Jim France“Today was a great opportunity to celebrate our collective accomplishments to date,” said Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III. “We’ve enjoyed the journey thus far and look forward to continuing the momentum during the months ahead.”

  • Surpassed one million man-hours
  • Installed 89 percent of the total steel

Oct 10 | Statement from Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III

SHARE

“After having multiple discussions with Moto America/KRAVE regarding a sanction agreement for 2015 Daytona 200, we were unable to find common ground on a business model that would be beneficial for both parties. We wish MotoAmerica/KRAVE the best as they begin their inaugural season in 2015.

Daytona International Speedway will continue to be the driving force behind Bike Week, hosting a wide range of activities for all ages including the Daytona Supercross, the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross and the AMA Pro Flat Track doubleheader, as well as demo rides, displays and vendors. We will continue to look for partners to assist in running the Daytona 200.”

Sep 23 | New Twist to DAYTONA 500 Qualifying Presented By Kroger

SHARE

DAYTONA 500 Qualifying Presented By Kroger, which traditionally features single-car qualifying, will switch to the group qualifying format for 2015. The top two starting positions will be determined through the group qualifying format on Sunday, Feb. 15.

Qualifying Changes

A new twist to qualifying for the DAYTONA 500 is among the 2015 rules changes that NASCAR officials announced on Tuesday afternoon.

DAYTONA 500 Qualifying Presented By Kroger, which traditionally features single-car qualifying, will switch to the group qualifying format for 2015. The top two starting positions will be determined through the group qualifying format on Sunday, Feb. 15.

Group qualifying, which debuted this year but was not implemented for the DAYTONA 500, has provided added entertainment to race fans and features all cars on the track at the same time attempting to post the fastest lap.

The results from DAYTONA 500 Qualifying Presented By Kroger will also set the field for the Budweiser Duel At Daytona 150-mile qualifying races on Thursday, Feb. 19. The results from the Budweiser Duel will finalize the starting lineup for the DAYTONA 500.

Also among the rule changes announced on Tuesday is a ban on all testing in 2015, and as a result, Preseason Thunder testing for the 57th annual DAYTONA 500 is canceled. In addition, the Preseason Thunder Fan Fest, the companion event to NASCAR testing, will no longer occur in its existing format.

NASCAR, Daytona International Speedway, teams and drivers are developing a plan over the next several weeks to celebrate the start of the 2015 season and the DAYTONA 500 in the weeks leading into the sport’s biggest event. More details on those plans will be provided at a later date.

The Roar Before The Rolex 24, the critical three-day test for the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge teams, as well as Scout Days will continue as scheduled for Jan. 9-11. The season-opening 53rd anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona will be on Jan. 24-25.

Tickets for the 57th annual DAYTONA 500 on Sunday, Feb. 22 as well as the rest of Budweiser Speedweeks 2015 events are available by calling 1-800-PITSHOP or online at http://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com
