Brock’s & BMW Brute Shootout at Daytona

2011 Daytona Bike Week

Brock’s Performance will team up with BMW Motorrad USA and Wyotech to bring the 21st Annual Brute Horsepower Shootout to Daytona Bike Week 2011.

Brock Davidson (Brock’s Performance) says: "This is the premier horsepower shootout in the country," said Brock Davidson of Brock’s Performance. "It has a rich history and typically attracts the most talented builders in the motorcycle performance industry. We are very excited to be a part of it."

Brock’s Performance will be representing BMW Motorrad USA at this historic event.

Brock Davidson says: "By becoming the major sponsor of the Brute Horsepower Shootout, BMW is continuing their commitment to motorcycle drag racing and the high-power sportbike customer segment. They are continuing to expand their presence."

The shootout will take place at the Wyotech campus located at "Destination Sportbike", just north of Daytona in Ormond Beach. Competition will be held in 13 classes for Asian and European makes as well as American V-twins.

Classes range from all-motor streetbikes to any combination of fuel and power-adder including nitrous, turbos and superchargers with Brock’s Performance headlining the Asian/European Open Unlimited class where past champions have eclipsed the 600 horsepower mark.

The weeklong event will also feature midway displays, Stunt shows by Jason Briton and the Icon Elite Team, a hip-hop fashion show, appearances by drag racing stars Rickey Gadson and Larry "Spiderman" McBride, as well as prizes and giveaways. Competition and spectator entry are free.

Brock Davidson says: "This event brings week long excitement for the stupid fast sportbike crowd. There are typically limited daytime options for us, and if you’re a horsepower enthusiast, like myself, this is a must-see event. Daytona doesn’t have a dragstrip so a dyno shootout is the next best thing for measuring the ultimate performance."

Qualifying for the shootout will take place Tuesday through Friday, March 8-11. The top qualifiers in each class will compete for the championship in an elimination-style format on Saturday March 12th.
