Driving the Economy. Improving the Speedway.
The Daytona International Speedway frontstretch improvement project has officially been approved by the International Speedway Corporation board of directors! This represents a huge step forward in terms of spurring economic growth in the state of Florida.
Although this is exciting news, we were forced to reduce the scale of the redevelopment plan due to our failed effort to secure a public / private partnership with the state in 2013. Among the features that were revised and no longer included in the redevelopment plan was a major overhaul of the midway area.
It is unfortunate we were forced to scale back some elements, but the project will be designed for additional enhancements should future economic incentives present themselves.
We are thrilled that the project is now beginning but we need your continued support as the building process gets under way. We plan to pursue incentives in 2014 including those currently available to all other major sports venues in Florida and will reevaluate additional potential amenities based on the outcome of our future efforts in Tallahassee.
