Daytona International Speedway Modifies Chicane
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.¯ (Sept. 27, 2002) -- Daytona International Speedway announced today modifications to the chicane that is utilized by motorcycle competitors during both Daytona 200 Week in March and the upcoming Fall Cycle Scene on Oct. 17-20.
The modifications, which were made in conjunction with the American Motorcyclists' Association and Alan Wilson, a noted track designer, include a change in the exit of the chicane so riders will re-enter the track prior to NASCAR Turn 3. This change should potentially enhance competition while not affecting the distance of the 3.56-mile road course. The chicane and Turn 6 will also be repaved in order to give riders a smoother transition between these areas and the tri-oval.
These modifications to the chicane and the paving will be completed in time for Fall Cycle Scene on Oct. 17-20 and could also be utilized by sports cars during their upcoming events.
Tickets and more information on Fall Cycle Scene are available online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling the Speedway ticket office at (386) 253-7223.
