Reimagining an American Icon

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.

Kingspan Insulated Panels helped transform Daytona International Speedway’s $400M facility into a world-class reality. Kingspan’s Morin perforated, single element panels made up the expanse while their Optimo Embossed and BENCHMARK Designwall 2000 Embossed insulated panels were used both for visually striking exterior design as well as climate controlling interior areas for a combined total of 525,000 square feet.

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. Kingspan also significantly reduced build-speed which reduced overall labor costs.
