We have been doing a bunch of vintage racing and to have it come back to Daytona Supercross, the grassroots of supercross and motocross, it’s going to be exciting,” said Jeff Stanton. “It is iconic to have it be a part of the whole Daytona Beach Bike Week and inside Daytona International Speedway. It is also great for amateurs and older, out of shape guys to say they have had the chance to race inside this legendary speedway.”
