The Daytona track is in the midst of a $400 million renovation that’s scheduled to be completed by January of 2016. When it’s done, Chitwood says, he wants the track to consider hosting other sporting events including football, soccer or rugby games. According to the Associated Press, Florida, Florida State and the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars or Tampa Bay Buccaneers would all be potential candidates.
One drawback for fans. The games would be played on the infield area so viewing from the stands may not be the best (but then again, neither is viewing NASCAR action along the backstretch).
