Venterra Realty recently acquired the Tomoka Pointe community located in Daytona Beach.

The 246-unit multi-family community was built in 2019 and offers modern one, two, and three-bedroom garden-style residences that range from 749-1,255 square feet in twelve unique floor plans, many with lake views. 

"We have seen excellent growth in the Daytona Beach area and are excited to expand our Florida portfolio with the addition of Tomoka Pointe," said John Foresi, CEO of Venterra Realty.

Each apartment offers modern finishes such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, oversized closets, and includes a washer and dryer. Residents can enjoy the barbecue area adjacent to the swimming pool, as well as a fully equipped fitness center. A clubhouse, business center and thoughtful services like on-site management and maintenance, along with elevators and garages add convenience. 

Tomoka Pointe offers fast access to I-95, I-4, and virtually any destination in the greater Orlando area can be easily reached. Closer to home, top landmarks include LPGA International, Daytona International Speedway, and Tomoka Town Center.

Venterra will implement its resident-focused programs such as the "Live it. Love it. Guarantee," the 48-hour maintenance guarantee, and Smartleasing.

"Venterra has become known as a company that is committed to providing a market-leading living experience, and we look forward to identifying opportunities to further enhance the standard of living at Tomoka Pointe by implementing Venterra’s customer-focused management platform,” said Venterra Chairman Andrew Stewart.

World Racing Group has hired motorsports executive Anthony Tate as the newest general manager of Volusia Speedway Park after former general manager, James Sawyer, retired in early April.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to join Volusia Speedway Park and World Racing Group to lead one of the best dirt tracks in all of motorsports,” Tate said. “Volusia Speedway Park is one of the most respected motorsport facilities across the country. Our fans, drivers and teams travel from all 50 states and abroad to enjoy our facility in Volusia County.”

Tate was raised in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and is a graduate of Cumberland Valley High School, Robert Morris University and Ohio University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in business and master of sport administration.

From there, Tate embarked on a career that has included stints at Darlington Raceway, Chicagoland Speedway and Route 66 Raceway as Senior Manager of Ticketing Operations for NASCAR. Prior to his time at NASCAR, Tate worked with Penn State University, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has also worked with local universities and student career centers for the next wave of students to work in sports.

He is no stranger to dirt racing, as he grew up in the world of dirt karting with the PDKA and WKA series. He also spent his time in Pennsylvania attending events at Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway.

“I’m excited to welcome Anthony as the new general manager of Volusia Speedway Park and to see the ambition he’s bringing to the speedway,” said Brian Carter, World Racing Group CEO. “The value of his experience has shown with new ideas he’s already implemented.”

Volusia Speedway Park — The World’s Fastest Half Mile — has been in operation for racing since 1968. The track was originally built by Benny Corbin as a way for dirt racing to grow in the Volusia County area. He owned the facility until 1982. Today, World Racing Group owns and operates Volusia Speedway Park, which plays host to the prestigious DIRTcar Nationals, Sunshine Nationals and Dale & Emil Reutimann Memorial in addition to its weekly racing program.
