2015 Daytona 200 Live Stream on!

2015 Daytona 200 Live Stream on!Last week, Daytona International Speedway (DIS) released the 50-rider entry list for the 74th edition of the Daytona 200 – but no broadcast services were reported.

But on Thursday – two days before the race goes green – DIS confirmed that will provide live-streaming coverage of the Daytona 200 free of charge. Though there is no TV coverage, at least fans can still get online and watch what we think is one of America’s most important road races.

Qualifying gets underway Friday, and the race at the 57-lap at the longer 3.51-mile road course goes green at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 14.

Back in October, confusion began when MotoAmerica – North America’s new road-racing series spearheaded by three-time GP Champion Wayne Rainey – could not reach an agreement with DIS to sanction the Daytona 200.

As the fate of the 2015 Daytona 200 dangled, the American SportBike Racing Association (ASRA) reached an agreement with DIS in December – and the race was a go. The ASRA and DIS decided to once again use 600cc sportbikes, though the former sanctioning body of the Daytona 200 – AMA Pro Racing – reported last year that the literbikes would return. The last time the race used literbikes was in 2004; that year, Mat Mladin won aboard a Suzuki GSX-R1000.

The 2015 Daytona 200 entry list includes five Daytona 200 Champions – Danny Eslick (2014), Josh Herrin (2010), Steve Rapp (2007), John Ashmead (1989) and Dave Sadowski Sr. (1990). These riders, along with the other 45, will battle for a $175,000 purse – the race winner will also be awarded the a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch, which in previous years was awarded to the pole sitter.

Log onto to catch the Daytona 200; the website is also the home to AMA Pro Racing events, and you can view reruns of AMA Pro Flat Track events.
