Year after year Florida has set annual tourism records that help support over a million jobs in the Sunshine State. In our latest Florida Chamber Series on Free Enterprise we sat down with Chip Wile, President of Daytona International Speedway to discuss the positive economic impacts the Speedway has on Florida, as well as the busy weeks of racing still ahead.
“We’re a $1.6 billion economic driver annually to the state of Florida, which is an incredible number,” said Wile. “We are really proud to know that we have provided 18,000 permanent jobs to the state of Florida both directly and indirectly from the operation not only at the Speedway but through the International Speedway Corporation.”
