Frontstretch Renovation
Construction on phase one of the frontstretch renovation at DIS begins and Sprint Cup Series drivers Joey Logano and David Ragan check out the plans with Track President Robin Braig.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Construction on phase one of Daytona International Speedway’s frontstretch renovation will begin this week at “The World Center of Racing.”

Phase one of the frontstretch renovation will be focused on the old dog track property located behind the Keech and Lockhart Grandstands and will include new fan amenities such as:

  • Two additional gate entrances

  • Relocation of the Turn 1 tram stop closer to the center of the frontstretch grandstands

  • New exterior pedestrian boulevard that will eventually stretch from Turn 1 to Turn 4

  • New and improved directional signage, landscaping and lighting

Daytona International Speedway President Robin Braig gave NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Joey Logano, driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota, and David Ragan, driver of the No. 6 UPS Ford, a tour of the area during a break in the recent Goodyear tire test at DIS.

“We’re excited to get construction underway,” Braig said. “Phase one of the renovation will be the first in a series of improvements on the frontstretch that will take the race fans’ motorsports experience to new heights at Daytona.”

Construction is expected to be completed for Speedweeks 2010 and the 52nd annual Daytona 500.

Tickets for the 52nd annual Daytona 500, which start at $55, as well as other Speedweeks 2010 events, are available at or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
