Honda to Host Daytona Kick-Off Party
Honda Red Riders from Supercross, GNCC and flat track to celebrate with fans
TORRANCE, Calif., February 29, 2016 – To help gear up for this weekend's Daytona Supercross by Honda and the beginning of Daytona Bike Week, Honda is inviting fans to attend the Honda Daytona Kick-Off Party at the Honda tent this Friday in Daytona International Speedway's new Midway area from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The event will feature autograph signings and interviews with a lineup of Honda Red Riders, including Honda HRC's Trey Canard and Cole Seely; GEICO Honda's Justin Bogle, Malcolm Stewart and RJ Hampshire; JCR GNCC racers Chris Bach and Trevor Bollinger; and AMA Pro Flat Track racer Shayne Texter. Signed jerseys will be raffled, and to celebrate the 25th year of Honda sponsoring the Daytona Supercross, a collection vintage Honda MX race bikes will be on display.
Attendees are encouraged to make a $5 donation, with proceeds going to Ride for Kids, for which Honda is the presenting sponsor, and which supports the work of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The Ride for Kids project bike—a Honda Gold Wing F6B customized by Klock Werks—will be on display.
"We're really pleased to bring back the Honda Daytona Kick-Off Party," said Mike Snyder, Senior Manager of Powersports Marketing at American Honda. "It gives our fans the opportunity to meet their Honda heroes across a broad array of racing disciplines, and it's a great opportunity to commemorate our 25th year of partnership with the 'World Center of Racing.'"
