Nov 26 | Statement from Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III on the UNOH Battle At The Beach

SHARE

UNOH Battle At The Beach

“After much consideration, Daytona International Speedway will not host any future UNOH Battle At The Beach events. For the past two years, the UNOH Battle At The Beach has produced thrilling racing on our backstretch. It was necessary for us to make this difficult decision given that we will open 40,000 new seats during Budweiser Speedweeks 2015 as part of the DAYTONA Rising redevelopment project and will remove the backstretch grandstands prior to 2016 racing season. We are pleased to see the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series will remain in Central Florida during Budweiser Speedweeks at New Smyrna Speedway and encourage fans to attend those exciting races. 

“The University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) has been a great partner in supporting the Battle At The Beach and we look forward to continuing to work with them to grow our relationship.”

Alert Today Florida 300

To promote the important messages of pedestrian and bike safety throughout the Sunshine State, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will serve as the title sponsor of the prestigious season-opening NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday, Feb. 21 at Daytona International Speedway. The 120-lap, 300-mile race will be known as the Alert Today Florida 300.

The partnership will increase the visibility of the safety campaign – Alert Today Alive Tomorrow – which is designed to raise public awareness of pedestrian and bicycle safety in the state of Florida.

“We’re excited about forming this partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “Daytona International Speedway provides an excellent platform to assist the FDOT in spreading the important message of roadway safety.”

In addition to the entitlement, FDOT is partnering with Florida native Scott Lagasse Jr., who will drive the No. 33 Alert Today Alive Tomorrow Boy Scouts of America car in the event.

Pedestrian and bicycle safety are my highest priorities,” FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said.Alert Today Alive Tomorrow is a multi-pronged approach that includes education, engineering, enforcement and emergency response that is improving safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists in Florida.”

Specific tips for reducing pedestrian fatalities that are promoted through Alert Today Alive Tomorrow include:

  • Pedestrians: Always use the crosswalk and look both ways before crossing
  • Motorists: Stop before turning right on red and always yield to pedestrians
  • Bicyclists: Make yourself visible and always signal your intentions so drivers know what to expect
  • Everyone: Pay attention to the road, every trip, every time!

Nov 14 | German Racing Legend 2015 Rolex 24 At Daytona Grand Marshal, Jochen Mass Tours DAYTONA Rising

SHARE

Mass is visiting the “World Center of Racing” this week to compete in the Historic Sportscar Racing events and the Classic 24 Hour vintage race, which scheduled to go green on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Legendary German sports car and Formula One driver Jochen Mass, who will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 53rd edition of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 24-25, 2015 at Daytona International Speedway, toured the DAYTONA Rising construction site. 

Jochen Mass

Mass is visiting the “World Center of Racing” this week to compete in the Historic Sportscar Racing events and the Classic 24 Hour vintage race, which scheduled to go green on Saturday at 1 p.m. 

Said Mass: “It’s an amazing venue. It’s taking race entertainment to a different level.” 

Jochen Mass

On his tour, Mass made his way to the west end of the frontstretch grandstands where there will be 40,000 new seats available on three different concourse levels for the 2015 Rolex 24. Mass found what he believes will be a great seat to view the entry and exit to the road course during the Rolex 24. 

“I think up here is definitely the best because you can see everything,” Mass said. “You see the pit entry and exit. You see the action. You see the first corner, it’s quite spectacular. You can see the cars coming back onto the track banking. I would definitely sit up here.” 

Jochen Mass

The complete DAYTONA Rising project – including seating for 101,000 – will be ready for sports car fans for the 2016 Rolex 24. 

Between 1977-87, Mass made five starts in the Rolex 24 At Daytona posting a best finish of third in 1985 and 1986 driving Jim Busby’s Porsche 962. In 1977, Mass put the first turbo-charged Porsche 935 on pole for the Rolex 24; in 1987 he won his second pole driving Bruce Leven’s Porsche 962.  

Fans will have the first opportunity to sit in those new seats at the Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 24-25 and hear Mass’ starting command, “Drivers start your engines.” Fans can purchase a two-day grandstand seat for $40 for the season-opening IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship event or $30 for Sunday only. 

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 and Florida Hospital are Founding Partners of DAYTONA Rising, joining the Speedway to help provide the very best experience for fans through more than 40,000 total square feet of engagement areas, branding rights for two of the injectors/entrances and two 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.

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.
