There is no race on the American motocross calendar more historic than Daytona. Anaheim may have the pomp, Las Vegas the after party, and Washougal the vibe, but Daytona is truly motocross. It has been part of the sport for years, longer than any of us at TWMX have been into moto (or alive for some of us), and for good reason. The track is horribly taxing on man and machine and basically turns into one long, bumpy rut that flows through the entire layout. It is a sign of every racer’s fitness level and a precursor to what they and we should expect at the 12 Nationals that will string us through the summer.
