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.

On Wednesday, 1,002 workers were on site at the “World Center of Racing” helping to create the nation’s first true motorsports stadium with the DAYTONA Rising project. The average daily worker count has been steadily rising since the fall. 

“This is another significant and important milestone in the project,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “Construction workers are moving at full speed on DAYTONA Rising to ensure that all the amenities within the facility are ready for the 2015 racing season.” 

After achieving significant construction milestones related to the DAYTONA Rising project during the past year, including installation of the highest piece of steel in October, Daytona International Speedway is busy preparing for Budweiser Speedweeks 2015 events.  

Fans can get an early preview of DAYTONA Rising during the 53rd anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 24-25 and Budweiser Speedweeks 2015 (the stadium will officially open in 2016). Approximately 40,000 new seats will be available along with two of the five injectors/entrances, new concessions, several of the neighborhoods or social areas and the new vertical transportation.
