Ricky Carmichael Designs Challenging Daytona SX Track for 10th Year

Since its debut in 1971 on the Supercross schedule, Daytona SX is one of the most anticipated races of the year.  The 2017 Daytona Monster Energy Supercross race is set for Saturday, March 11, at Daytona International Speedway during Daytona Bike Week.

For the 10th-straight year, the track was designed by 15-time national Supercross/Motocross Champion Ricky Carmichael. The most noticeable change to the 2017 design is the return of the starting gate to the east side of the tri-oval.

“It is so grueling,” Carmichael said of the course. “The sand and the clay mixed in, there’s not a lot of things that you really need to do to make it any more grueling than Daytona Supercross is already recognized for, but it sure is a fun challenge to make it somewhat fun for the riders.”

Carmichael is the all-time winning rider in the Daytona Supercross By Honda, the only Florida stop on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross schedule.

General admission tickets are $45 for adults and $15 for kids 6-12, kids 5 and under are free in general admission stadium seating. Trackside Access, which gets you closer to the action than any other venue on the circuit, can be added to any race ticket for $20. There is free parking in the infield as well as in Lot 5 which is located outside Turn 4.

Tickets for Daytona Supercross By Honda and all other 76th annual Bike Week At Daytona events can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP. Fans can stay connected with Daytona International Speedway on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and Snapchat, and by downloading Daytona International Speedway’s mobile app, for the latest Speedway news throughout the season.
