DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY ENTERS INTO SANCTION AGREEMENT FOR 74TH DAYTONA 200 WITH AMERICAN SPORTBIKE RACING ASSOCIATION

Daytona International Speedway has reached a sanction agreement with the American SportBike Racing Association (ASRA) to hold the 74th DAYTONA 200 motorcycle race on Saturday, March 14, 1 p.m., at Daytona International Speedway, Track President Joie Chitwood announced today.
The DAYTONA 200 will be a 57-lap race on the 3.51-mile road course showcasing 600cc sportbikes battling for a purse of $175,000 with the race winner also being awarded a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona.
ASRA and the Championship Cup Series (CCS) will have a full complement of road races Thursday, March 12 through Sunday, March 15. DAYTONA 200 qualifying will take place on Friday, March 13 with the race going green the following day at 1 p.m.
The DAYTONA 200 is America’s most historic motorcycle race with the inaugural event being held on the sands of Daytona Beach before the race moved to Daytona International Speedway in 1961.
“The tradition of the DAYTONA 200 spans both the sands of Daytona Beach and the high banks of the Speedway and we’re excited about continuing this historic event with the American Sportbike Racing Association,” Chitwood said. “With a competitive purse and a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona at stake, riders will have plenty of incentive as they compete for a coveted Daytona victory.”
ASRA and CCS are traditionally part of the Fall Cycle Scene motorcycle schedule at Daytona International Speedway. CCS was founded in 1984 and has become the leader in sportsman level motorcycle road racing offering unrivalled competition at nationwide venues. ASRA started administering CCS in 2006.
“To say that ASRA is excited to be a part of the DAYTONA 200 is an understatement,” said Kevin Elliott, President of ASRA. “There is no other motorcycle event in the United States that comes close to the prestige of the DAYTONA 200 and we’re honored to keep the tradition alive in 2015.”

Club racing organizations. It's official: The Daytona 200 is a club race. DMG tried to make it happen, but they had to leave to get it done.

Patrick Pons just after winning the 1980 Daytona 200.
The glory days, I was there in '79,80 and 81. I went back after the formula was changed to Superbike and the luster was sliding. By the time DMG changed the race to 600's, well why bother ?
Unfortuneatly for Mr. Pons this victory was followed 5 months later by his death from injuries sustained at the British Grand Prix.

I'm a little sad about Daytona, it was an epic motorcycle racing week back in the day. But looking forward to seeing what MotoAmerica has in store for us!

You're going about this all wrong!!!! You're supposed to stay behind closed doors, do shady deals and keep everyone in the dark, especially the fans!!! You're never supposed to ASK the fans what they like!!!!
I just don't know how your gonna make this whole thing work if you're actually pleasing the track owners, race teams, sponsers, AND the fans!!!
What the hell will we bitch about on the internet??
BTW, best of luck, I will be following and hope to see roadracing in this country return to the level it should be at. Thank you for stepping up to the plate to try to save it!!!

Sure , fours up to 640cc and triples up to 680cc , those will make up most of the field.
But also rules that include air-cooled ,carburated twins and rules that allow you to put twin discs on your Buell , who'll be doing that ?
As for modern twins , liquid cooled ,4 valve per cylinder twins are still limited to 850cc, leaving out the 899 Panigale, that will be in it;s 3rd year of production.
I guess if it's on the tube I'll watch it. I can't say it sounds exciting.

No, they're current club racing rules. CCS, ASRA, and WERA have to accommodate a lot of bikes and classes and the rules are written to suit.

I feel they shouldn't have an age limit on their KTM 390 series it would bring more racers and if the kids cant beat a 30-40-50 yr old they should catch up.
