The prestigious and physically demanding event will be the first Supercross race held in the newly renovated motorsports stadium at the “World Center of Racing.”

The new motorsports stadium will provide premier sightlines for Supercross fans and improved reserved seating options.

In the 2015 Daytona Supercross By Honda, KTM rider Ryan Dungey, who had posted four podium finishes in the Daytona Supercross By Honda since 2010, finally broke through for his first career win in the grueling and challenging event.
“I had never won this race, and it’s really special,” Dungey said. “We need to really enjoy these wins. To be able to finally win here… I’ve been here so many times.”
Dungey will be aiming for back-to-back victories in 2016, against a wide-open field of riders including Eli Tomac, Trey Canard, Chad Reed and Ken Roczen.
