Construction Reaches Halfway Mark at Daytona Speedway Project

February 18, 2015

Daytona Rising is a $400 million project that will transform the Daytona International Speedway grandstand in Florida into a "motorsports stadium." As racers and fans descend on the city this month for the start of the NASCAR season, they will see complex construction taking place.

"Probably the biggest challenge for us is operating an older venue with a new venue at the same time," said track President Joie Chitwood.
