Daytona International Speedway underwent a $400 million redevelopment that began in July 2013 and was completed in time for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and DAYTONA 500. The project includes five expanded and redesigned entrances, or “injectors” that lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators transporting them to three different concourse levels. Each level features spacious social areas, or “neighborhoods,” along the nearly mile-long frontstretch. At the conclusion of the redevelopment, Daytona International Speedway now has approximately 101,500 permanent, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. In addition, the Speedway now features over 60 luxury suites with track side views and a completely revamped hospitality experience for corporate guests.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - 5/18/19 - New High Tech Food and Drink

Rick is always on the lookout for the latest in food and drinks..

Technology now comes into play with what we put into our body. As summer approaches, here are some new offerings to consider.

Have a listen to Rick and Sully

SRP - $4.99 for a 1-liter carton

Sesame seeds are more sustainable than other seeds and nuts because the crop can grow in moisture or heat-stressed environments. On average, sesame seeds take about 125 days from planting to harvest, while other sources of nondairy milk, like tree nuts, take years.
Sesame is also a natural source of vital minerals and amino acids and has many health benefits from normalizing blood pressure and balancing hormones to boosting liver function and reducing vulnerability to breast and colon cancer, among others.

Hope & Sesame took 24 months of research and development to create the ideal nutritional balance, consistency and taste. We would welcome sending you some sesamemilks to try. If appropriate, we’d also welcome going a giveaway or discount for your readers.
