The checkered flag may wave for eternity for some racing fans.

A bill winding through the Florida Legislature could allow race fans to have their ashes interred at Daytona International Speedway and Homestead Miami Speedway.

The legislation would allow the racetracks to build a structure known as a columbarium to house the urns.

Daytona International Speedway spokesman Lenny Santiago says some race fans have been asking for years about having their ashes laid to rest at the speedway.
