Michael Gentry (Chief Operation Officer of AMA Pro Racing) says: “Opening our season at Daytona International Speedway is a source of pride for AMA Pro Racing. The racing is always competitive, and we’re sure the fans are as excited as we are about starting the 2014 season.”

The Daytona 200 will run for 57 laps around the 3.51-mile road course, taking riders 200 miles for the opening round of the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike series.

The 2013 Daytona 200 was won by Yamaha’s Cameron Beaubier, who led 50 of 57 laps for a 22.254-second margin of victory. Beaubier added his name to the long list of motorcycle legends that have conquered the Daytona 200 including Scott Russell, Miguel Duhamel, Mat Mladin, Kenny Roberts, Dick Klamforth and Brad Andres.

In addition to the Daytona 200, the Speedway will host a full complement of GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing classes March 13-15 including the National Guard SuperBike, Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport and the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series. The AMA Pro Flat Track doubleheader is scheduled for March 13-14.

Kicking off Daytona 200 Week on Saturday night, March 8 will be the prestigious Daytona Supercross By Honda – the only AMA Supercross event in Florida in 2014. The tough and challenging course will once again be designed by Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael.
