Daytona International Speedway’s $400 Million Project Nears Completion

The world’s first motorsports stadium will be ready for its debut later this month at the Rolex 24 At Daytona Weekend.

After more than two years of redeveloping its nearly mile-long front stretch, Daytona International Speedway’s (DIS) $400 million DAYTONA Rising project is near completion. On Tuesday, DIS received its temporary certificate of occupancy which allows us to begin moving into the facility and fully prepare for the upcoming race season. The world’s first motorsports stadium will be ready for its debut later this month at the Rolex 24 At Daytona Weekend.

Since kicking off the project in July 2013, DIS has celebrated tremendous milestones along the way including the DAYTONA Rising 500 groundbreaking ceremony, the first-ever DAYTONA Rising Escalator Duel to activate the new vertical transportation as well as the recent lighting of the massive identification sign.

“After more than two years of dedication and hard work, we’re thrilled that our new motorsports stadium is nearing completion,” said Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III. “We’re thankful for the tremendous support from our partners, project team and fans and can’t wait to welcome everyone during the Rolex 24 At Daytona.”
