“Opening our season at Daytona International Speedway is a source of pride for AMA Pro Racing,” said Michael Gentry, chief operating office of 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 season-opening AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike motorcycle race will feature riders battling the twists and turns of Daytona International Speedway’s 3.51-mile road course for 57 laps, a total of 200 miles.

In the 2013 Daytona 200, Graves Yamaha rider Cameron Beaubier delivered a flawless performance, leading 50 of the 57 laps on his way to 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 Klamfoth 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 through 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 through 14.

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

Tickets for all motorcycle racing events are available by phone at 800/PIT-SHOP or online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com.
