Steel erection begins at PIR

On Tuesday morning, the first piece of steel was installed for the new grandstand structure as part of the $178 million Phoenix Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar.

The beam featured a special message “Best Wishes from Daytona," signifying a symbolic passing of the torch from Phoenix Raceway’s partner facility Daytona International Speedway, which also recently completed a significant redevelopment project – DAYTONA Rising.

After arriving onsite as part of a special parade ceremony last week, the beam is the first to be placed in the grandstand addition that will overlook the famous dogleg. Nearly 2,000 tons of steel will be installed by the project’s completion in November 2018.
