Barton Malow, Rossetti Wrap up $400M Daytona Race Track Redevelopment

The primary designer and builder of the massive $400 million redevelopment of Daytona International Speedway are about to see their work get its first full test.

Two local companies, Southfield-based construction manager Barton Malow Co. and Detroit-based architect Rossetti Associates Inc., led the “Daytona Rising” renovation of the Florida auto track that is home to NASCAR’s iconic Daytona 500.

While there have been races at Daytona since work began in July 2013, the track’s entire mile-long, 101,500-seat grandstand will be open for the first time with this weekend’s “Rolex 24 at Daytona” endurance race.
