Speedway Names Trivia………….

Question – The Daytona International Speedway has a 180 acre infield area, which includes the 29 acre Lake Lloyd. How did lake Lloyd get it name?

Answer – To build the high banking, crews had to dig out millions of tons of soil from the track’s infield. Because of the high water table in the area, the hole excavated filled with water to form what is now known as Lake Lloyd, named after Joseph “Sax” Lloyd, one of the original six members of the Daytona Beach Speedway Authority. (The lake would be stocked with 65,000 fish, and France would arrange speedboat races on it.)
