Ep.90 – Joie Chitwood

Joie Chitwood III is part of racing royalty. Born to the famed Chitwood family, Joie’s grandfather (Joie Chitwood) was the creator of the “Joie Chitwood Thrill Show,” which was a traveling car show that went to cities around the country performing a number of driving stunts. An era unlike any other, Joie was exposed at a young age to the traveling circus, which suited him well in understanding the promotional business. After receiving his MBA, it didn’t take Joie long to find racing again, managing tracks including Walt Disney World Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, and eventually the role of President of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, then Daytona International Speedway, and now as the COO of International Speedway Corporation (ISC), which manages some of the most famed tracks around the country. Lunch was served at the North Turn in Daytona Beach, Florida, with the music of Zentril taking us out. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Acura for providing a great MDX.
