Supercross R10 – Daytona: facts, figures and animated track map


Daytona International Speedway hosted the first ever Monster Energy Supercross race in 1974 and is the only venue still present since the inception of the championship. It has been a part of all 44 supercross seasons, the only facility to hold that distinction.

Daytona actually predates the supercross championship, hosting its first Trans-AMA race in 1971 before being integrated into the first two seasons of the AMA Motocross Championship in 1972 & 1973.

Daytona is the only stop on the Monster Energy Supercross schedule that does not take place in a stadium. Instead it utilizes the racetrack‰Ûªs massive tri-oval infield to create what riders often consider the most physically demanding track in the championship.

The Daytona Supercross is arguably the showcase spectacle of Daytona Bike Week, taking place alongside the legendary Daytona 200 road race in addition to several other racing and motorcycle celebration events throughout Daytona Beach.
