The Daytona Supercross is more like an outdoor motocross, as Ricky Carmichael sets up the track in the infield of the famed motor speedway with long straightaways and big jumps.

Andrew Short led the first eight laps before Ryan Dungey took control and won for the first time at Daytona. Eli Tomac got a bad start but came charging back, and the crowd favorite wheelied all the way through the whoops section. A rookie to the 450SX class, Blake Baggett, put in a good ride to get his first podium finish.

KTM swept both classes for the third time this season, with Marvin Musquin taking the win in the 250SX class.

Here are some photographic highlights from the event. Results follow the photos.
