In less than 12 months, Daytona International Speedway has installed 7,000 tons of steel and poured over 13,000 cubic yards of concrete to develop the world’s first motorsports stadium.

Less than one week ago, the first escalator was raised and installed on the West end of the frontstretch as part of the new vertical transportation. Additionally, the Speedway continued steel and metal stud installation during the last month of construction.

Upcoming construction activities include:

  • Continue installing stairs and escalators at West and East ends of the project
  • Completion of elevator shaft in Injector 1 and 5 will occur in early to mid May
  • Ongoing steel installation in Injectors 2, 3 and 4
  • Interior build out of restrooms, merchandise areas, concession stands and neighborhood bar in Injector 1
  • Service level masonry work in all areas is in progress
  • Continuing Installation of litter shield, seating treads and risers in Injector 1
  • Underground cable pulling for the stadium’s new power system to feed the new stadium is in progress
