Daytona International Speedway

The Project

The Daytona International Speedway,  home of the DAYTONA 500, was over 50 years old, completely open and  vulnerable to the elements, and had no private spaces or air conditioning.

Speedway owner’s needed to develop a $400 million project, DAYTONA Rising, creating a world-class facility with  premium amenities and offering a  complete, immersive fan experience unmatched in the industry, on a tight  deadline within the confines of their racing schedule.

Kingspan’s commitment to built  environments that are more energy  efficient, attractive, adaptable,  environmentally sensitive and  productive, aligned with Daytona  International Speedway’s lofty  sustainability goals.

"From day one,  we’ve committed to maximizing  sustainable building practices as part of  DAYTONA Rising."

Pedal to the Metal

Kingspan insulated metal panels were chosen to create interior sections of the speedway as well as provide the focal pieces of its exterior. Totaling 125,000 square feet of insulated panels, Kingspan achieved temperate and air-conditioned spaces in the interior sections that transport fans through spacious social areas along the nearly mile-long front stretch. A visually striking exterior section of shimmering white, bold colors and dynamic curves was created using Kingspan’s Optimo and BENCHMARK Designwall 2000 embossed panels.


Need for Speed

Kingspan was an exclusive, single source provider for all metal panel solutions, delivering a fully inclusive package and cladding system. This sourcing ease enabled design flexibility and greatly increased speed to production.
