2013 Daytona Supercross By Honda Scheduled for March 92012-05-04 17:12
Daytona International Speedway will host the only AMA Supercross event in the state of Florida in 2013 when it stages the Daytona Supercross By Honda on its legendary tri-oval Saturday night, March 9. Tickets for the event are now on sale.
The Daytona Supercross By Honda’s grueling and challenging course will once again be a Ricky Carmichael Signature Design. Carmichael, who owns a record five Daytona Supercross By Honda victories, will design the course for the sixth straight year.
“It’s a privilege to be able to return and design the race course again,” Carmichael said. “Daytona has so much history and I am honored to be a part of it. I enjoy sitting down with a blank piece of paper and designing a course that will produce great racing for the riders as well as the fans.”
James Stewart will be looking to defend his 2012 Daytona Supercross By Honda title against a tough field of challengers that are expected to include two-time defending AMA Supercross champion Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, Trey Canard and Andrew Short.
Daytona International Speedway has been home to the original Supercross since 1971 – the longest continuous Supercross event in America. Among the Supercross greats that have captured the Daytona Supercross By Honda include Bob Hannah, Jeff Stanton, Jeremy McGrath and Carmichael.
