John Andretti Joins Daytona Internaltional Speedway for Light Pole Raising Ceremony

19 November 1997

DAYTONA BEACH, FL - John Andretti and representatives of Musco Lighting 
joined Daytona International Speedway officials for a light pole raising 
ceremony at the speedway on Monday, November 17. 

The 3.5 million watt per hour lighting system, consisting of more than 175 
light poles and 2,025 fixtures, is scheduled to be fully installed in time 
for the inaugural nighttime running of the Pepsi 400 on July 4, 1998. 

The event will be the first stock car race held at night in the more than 
39-year history at the famed race track. Andretti won the 1996 Pepsi 400 
recording his first series victory in his 110th career start. 

Musco Lighting, based in Musatine, Iowa, is the contractor for the undertaking
which is being billed as the largest outdoor lighting project in the world.
