DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Johnny Sauter held off Kyle Busch after taking the white flag to earn his first race victory at Daytona International Speedway in the 14th annual NextEra Energy Resources 250 on Friday night at the “World Center of Racing.”  Sauter’s win gives Toyota its 100th win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and seventh straight at Daytona.

The race’s sixth caution was thrown just after Sauter took the white flag, allowing him to keep Busch at bay and hang on for the race win.  Sauter’s trip to Gatorade Victory Lane in the No. 98 Carolina Nut Co./Curb Records Toyota marks his seventh career win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.  His previous best finish at Daytona was 17th place.

“Aw, man, it’s a lot hard to win a restrictor plate race than you think,” said Sauter.  “I’m speechless.  We did everything right tonight.

“What a special place to get that (Toyota’s 100th CWTS win) right here at Daytona.  It’s awesome,” Sauter said.  His father Jim won an ARCA Series race in 1978, the year he was born.

Kyle Busch led the race three different times in the No. 51 Toyota Care Toyota before finishing second. Busch remains winless at Daytona in the Camping World Truck Series despite having won in the ARCA Series, as well as NASCAR’s Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series.

“Unfortunately, it was only a 99-lap race today, and we couldn’t get the win,” said Busch.

Ron Hornaday Jr. piloted the No. 9 Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff Chevrolet to a third-place finish. 

Racing action resumes Saturday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway with the NASCAR Nationwide Series DRIVE4COPD 300 at 1:00 ET (ESPN, MRN Radio).

Feb 22 | Daytona International Speedway Reveals Detailed Concepts, Vision For Proposed Redevelopment Project

SHARE

Daytona International Speedway (DIS) President Joie Chitwood this morning conducted the first in-depth, virtual “walk through” of what the iconic Speedway would look like as part of a proposed redevelopment project, one that Chitwood emphasized would be designed to reaffirm the Speedway’s standing among race fans as “the world center of racing for years to come.”

DAYTONA BEACH, FL, February 22, 2013 — Daytona International Speedway (DIS) President Joie Chitwood this morning conducted the first in-depth, virtual “walk through” of what the iconic Speedway would look like as part of a proposed redevelopment project, one that Chitwood emphasized would be designed to reaffirm the Speedway’s standing among race fans as “the world center of racing for years to come.”

The proposed project is subject to approval by senior management of the International Speedway Corporation (ISC), which owns Daytona International Speedway, pending several economic stability factors as well as construction design and costs. The project may also be impacted by state legislation that would include incentives for surpassing significant private investment levels.

Speaking to nearly 300 media members and motorsports industry leaders this morning at the Speedway, Chitwood guided attendees through three-dimensional video renderings of what the redeveloped frontstretch structure would look like. The vision for the redevelopment places an emphasis on enhancing “the complete fan experience,” beginning with five expanded and redesigned fan entrances (“injectors”) along International Speedway Boulevard.

Each injector would lead directly to a series of escalators that would transport fans to any of three different concourse levels, each featuring spacious and strategically-placed social “neighborhoods” along the mile-long frontstretch. The 11 neighborhoods, each measuring the size of a football field, would enable fans to meet and socialize during events without ever missing any on-track action, thanks to an open-sightline design throughout each concourse and dozens of added video screens in every neighborhood.

The central neighborhood, the “World Center of Racing,” would celebrate the history of Daytona International Speedway and its many historic moments throughout more than 50 years of racing.

In addition, the redevelopment would see every seat in the Speedway frontstretch replaced with new and more comfortable seating, as well as the addition of more restrooms and concession stands within easier access points for all fans.

To learn more about the potential project, fans can visit www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com/redevelopment. Fans can also visit RedevelopDaytona.com to learn how they may be able to get involved in helping make this potential project a reality.

Additionally, interviews with defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski and three-time DAYTONA 500 winner Dale Jarrett sharing their thoughts on the proposed project, can be viewed on Daytona International Speedway’s official YouTube channel.
