Jostens announced today, in conjunction with Daytona International Speedway, the starting grid of limited edition memorabilia containing actual track pieces from Daytona International Speedway.

Race fans and collectors will now have the rare opportunity to own a piece of American racing history following the historic 2010 repaving of Daytona International Speedway.

From the first race in 1959 to the last race of 2010 before the repave, Daytona International Speedway holds more than 50 years of unforgettable racing memories. Now fans will be able to hold on to every legendary Daytona story with a piece of genuine track where racing history happened.

The Commemorative Track Collection includes unique one-of-a-kind genuine track pieces. Quantities of these commemorative pieces are limited and available only while supplies last.

Jostens is offering 16 unique items. These items are being offered on Jostens' official website. Such items included are a Daytona Track Medallion, Piece of Turn 3, Framed Collage, and Front Stretch Track Surface. Jostens will be adding more items in the coming weeks.

This will be only the second time that this historic track has been repaved; the first came in 1978. The repaving project has a target finish date of January 1, 2011. That would have the track ready for Speedweeks 2011, which will kick off the 49th annual Rolex 24 At Daytona and conclude with the 53rd annual Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 20, the prestigious season-opening event to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
