Most building construction begins with foundations and framing. Major construction requires steel beams for structure strength. The Daytona International Speedway grand stands are getting major reconstruction now with a project called DAYTONA Rising and tall steel is required.
The extensive DIS renovation began after the July Coke Zero 400 race and is expected to be complete in early 2016.
Steel beams and supports are being installed this month and next.
Fans will have to wait for the competed project, but the time required is being put to great use. DAYTONA Rising focus is to provide the best and most comfortable experience for fans watching some of the best motorsports events available.
Extensive plans are sometimes too complex to be easily grasped, but the conclusion of this reconstruction is going to very welcome to loyal NASCAR Daytona fans.

About DAYTONA Rising
DAYTONA Rising is a $400 million reimagining of an American icon – Daytona International Speedway. Five expanded and redesigned entrances, or “injectors,” will lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to three different concourse levels. Each level features spacious social areas, or “neighborhoods,” along the nearly mile-long frontstretch.
At the conclusion of the redevelopment, Daytona International Speedway will have approximately 101,000 permanent, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. In addition, the Speedway will feature over 60 luxury suites with track side views and a completely revamped hospitality experience for corporate guests.
DAYTONA Rising: Reimagining an American Icon, expected to create 6,300 jobs, $300 million in labor income and over $80 million in tax revenue, will be completed in time for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and DAYTONA 500.
