As Daytona International Speedway continues its ever so fantastic renovations, on January 14th, Daytona International Speedway (DIS) will hold the first ever “DAYTONA Rising Escalator Duel” to officially activate the new vertical transportation associated with its $400 million DAYTONA Rising redevelopment project.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Austin Dillon and Richard Childress, owner of Richard Childress Racing, will have the ULTIMATE grandfather/grandson battle to the top of the new 150-foot grandstand using the stairs and new escalators respectively. Each individual will also need to make several “pit stops”/collect items related to the Speedway’s new amenities along the way.
