DAYTONA Rising August Project Update: Construction Activities Shift Into High Gear

After successfully hosting another series of events during last month’s Coke Zero 400 Weekend Powered By Coca-Cola, Daytona International Speedway will significantly ramp up construction activities for the $400 million DAYTONA Rising redevelopment project. The average number of daily construction workers will increase from 600 to 850 during the peak summer months, representing the largest construction team since the project’s inception.

“We are proud of our accomplishments to date but will certainly put the pedal to the metal in the months ahead,” said Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III. “Our plan is to open 40 percent of the new stadium by Budweiser Speedweeks 2015; therefore it’s important for us to continue the momentum.”

Key accomplishments to date:
· Installed more than 58,000 pieces of steel

· Poured more than 18,700 cubic yards of concrete

· Installed 18 of the 40 new escalators

· Installed 1,000 square feet of exterior metal panels

The demolition of the Lockhart Grandstands near Turn 1 is complete. More than 30,000 seats will be removed in next 30 days.

Upcoming construction activities include:
· Continue installing escalators at West and East ends of the project

· Ongoing masonry near main IT room and loading dock support areas

· Ongoing steel installation

· Continue installing new lights on the West end of the project
