ATMs Will Provide Added Convenience for NASCAR Fans During the Daytona Speedweeks
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Daytona International Speedway announced the successful installment of Fifth Third Bank ATMs at the newly redeveloped Speedway this week. The seven ATMs have been strategically placed throughout the racing venue to accommodate the most fans. One ATM will be located in the tours building, and gates 2, 3 and 4 will each house two ATMs.
“We are excited to provide this added convenience for racing fans just in time for the upcoming Speedweeks,” said Brian Lamb, regional president of Fifth Third Bank (North Florida). “Daytona International Speedway is an American icon, and we are proud to be able to provide one of the many new features at this landmark racing venue.”
Last June, Fifth Third Bank signed on as the official bank of the “World Center of Racing” and as an official sponsor of the DAYTONA 500 and the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola. In addition to the ATM integration, the multi-year agreement provides Fifth Third Bank with fan engagement and corporate hospitality opportunities at the Speedway, as well as the ability to use Daytona International Speedway and its races’ marks and logos in Fifth Third Bank promotions.
“We are excited to have the Fifth Third Bank ATMs installed into the new motorsports stadium as we approach our first events later this month,” said Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III. “The DAYTONA Rising project is going to take the guest experience at the ‘World Center of Racing’ to new heights and has also proved to serve as a valuable marketing platform for our growing list of partners such as Fifth Third Bank.”

About Daytona International Speedway
Daytona International Speedway is the home of “The Great American Race” – the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening NASCAR Sprint Cup event garners most of the attention – as well as the largest audience in motorsports – the approximately 500-acre motorsports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe, thus earning it the title of “World Center of Racing.” In addition to eight major weekends of racing activity, the Speedway will host the inaugural Country 500 – The Great American Music Fest at DAYTONA over Memorial Day Weekend in 2016. Rarely a week goes by that the Speedway grounds are not used for events that include civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
