Daytona Int’l Speedway Grandstand Renovations In The Works

By Mark McNabb on Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Danica Patrick isn’t the only thing making news at the Daytona International Speedway this season. NASCAR officials are proposing an expansion plan for the grand stands at the famous speedway.

DIS president Joie Chitwood showed off the conceptual renderings at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte last month, along with two other proposed ideas for other tracks.

The master plan calls for the complete demolition of the current stands along the front stretch and constructing new stands that includes a large front entrance, escalators, themed restaurants, bars, and open concourse areas overlooking the track.

Sprint Cup Driver Brad Keselowski says in the video below that these types of renovations will put the Speedway on par or above other sporting venues. Chitwood says he wants the Speedway to become an even bigger destination for visitors to Central Florida.
