Teens Applaud Speedway for Smoking Ban in Grandstands

June 20, 2012   The Putnam County teenagers were among 60 students from northeast Florida who applauded Daytona International Speedway officials Tuesday for reducing the effects of second hand smoking. Starting with events July 6 and during the Coke Zero on July 7, smoking in the track grandstands will be prohibited. The anti-tobacco awareness campaigns Tobacco-Free Florida and Students Working Against Tobacco, along with NASCAR driver Jeffrey Earnhardt and representatives from the Florida Department of Health, voiced their support for the new policy Tuesday during a press conference at the Speedway. Dr. Bonnie Sorensen, Florida Department of Health director, said the change represents a milestone for the community and the state.
