CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Daytona International Speedway has unveiled new details on its proposed redevelopment of the historic 53-year-old Florida racetrack.

Speedway President Joie Chitwood showed conceptual renderings of the multi-year plan Tuesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.

The plan calls for five new modern entrances, a second pedestrian bridge for easier access to the track and an expanded grandstand area with thousands of new seats. The project, if approved, would provide upgraded concession areas, ticket gates and more common areas to view the race from different vantage points.

Chitwood says the cost of the project hasn't been determined.

There have already been meetings with the city of Daytona Beach and Volusia County on zoning rules.
