Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki KX-F450 Supercross) says: “Daytona is a unique place to race. To win it is pretty awesome. It’s not like any other racing. If you can get a win here, it shows you are definitely one of the best. Sometimes it doesn’t go as planned but I’ll take it. It feels really good.”

Ryan Villopoto says.“It’s not much but it’s at least leading,” Villopoto said. “There’s still a lot of racing left and we have to keep focused and keep pushing forward.”

Marvin Musquin (Red Bull KTM SX-F 250) says: “I just stayed really calm and tried to have fun. I was pulling away from them every lap and I was having so much fun playing with the track. I don’t want to say it was easy but I had so much fun.”
