The first of 40 new ThyssenKrupp escalators are being installed now at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, part of a US$400 million upgrade called “Daytona Rising.” New escalators and elevators will lead car-racing fans through five larger entrances to three levels overlooking an almost mile-long stretch of track. Besides the vertical-transportation solutions, Daytona International is adding more than 60 luxury suites, 100,000 new seats, and is doubling its restrooms and tripling its concession stands. Speedway officials aim to have the project complete in time for the 2016 races — Rolex 24 and DAYTONA 500. Once complete, the track will have the greatest number of escalators of any American sports venue, according to speedway officials. One may keep track of the progress, including installation of the escalators and elevators, at the Daytona Rising website.
