ARCHITECTURE FIRM HIRED: In addition to filing paperwork to be rezoned, DIS two months ago hired Rossetti, the Michigan-based architecture firm that designed the Ford Field and Red Bull Arena, to assist it with the redevelopment project. The firm has not done any creative work to date but has brought Chitwood and others up to speed on amenities being added at other sports facilities and discussed possibilities for DIS. Chitwood said, "The minute I get a mock-up and creative, I'm going to show it to the world." The last major renovation done at the speedway took place in '04, when DIS undertook a multi-million-dollar overhaul of its infield, adding the Sprint FanZone, new garages and the Daytona 500 Club.
