Alright, looks like I have to retract my comment after reading Dubya's link.

Yes it is and everyone is still healthy so far. Should be a good preview for the outdoors.

I never understand why people say that (you're not the first one). How is Daytona SX anything like a National track?

Much of it is loose and full of ruts, and the back straight is 3 times the length of any stadium track.

It has been getting more like a SX track the last few years, but weather and sand make for a definite difference on setup and endurance.

Just clicking your timing marks doesn't work there like in a more typical SX.

Sand requires power. 450 is the bike to be on.

Pretty sure Roczen passed quite a few 450's on his 250 in Lommel as well.
