The first AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike race of the season began at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida on March 11.
Although no longer the motorcycles of choice for the Daytona 200 main event, the American Superbikes clearly have the most hp and the most talented road racers in the U.S aboard.
Last year’s Superbike champ and this year’s Daytona Superbike pole-sitter, Josh Hayes is aboard the Monster Energy Graves Motorsports Yamaha R1.
Blake Young and Tommy Hayden return on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R 1000s, with Roger Hayden and Ben Bostrom on the National Guard Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000 machines.
Iron Horse’s Chris Peris and Foremost Insurance’s Larry Pegram are riding the BMW S1000RR superbikes and Team Cycle World returned with Eric Bostrom on the brand-new Kawasaki ZX-10 R.
Other riders of interest include last year’s AMA Daytona SportBike champ, Martin Cardenas on the M4 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Geoff May representing Erik Buell Racing on the Buell 1125R, now on the 2011 endangered-species list.
