DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (June 29, 2004) -- Julie Giese, Director of Public Relations at Watkins Glen International and Nazareth Speedway, has been named Director of Communications at Daytona International Speedway, President Robin Braig announced today.

Giese, who will begin her new duties at the "World Center of Racing" in September, will be responsible for advertising and promotions, continuing to develop sports car, motorcycle and go-kart events and helping coordinate pre-race and post-race activities.

"Julie has been instrumental in the success at Watkins Glen and we're looking forward to her joining an already talented team at Daytona," Braig said.

Prior to joining Watkins Glen International, Giese served as a Public Relations Account Executive at Miller Meester Advertising, located in Minneapolis, Minn., for two years. At Miller Meester, Giese developed and implemented the public relations accounts for Cargill, Inc. and BASF Corporation, along with working to maintain and write content for several racing-orientated Web sites.
