Re: 2021 Daytona 200 - some history

1937:
Two-wheeled version of beach racing history began with the inaugural DAYTONA 200 motorcycle road race on Jan. 24, 1937. The racing was halted during World War II in the interest of national defense. Stock car racing resumed on April 14, 1946. The motorcycle races resumed the following year, on Feb. 27.

1961:
The DAYTONA 200 motorcycle classic moved from the beach to a 2.0-mile road course inside Daytona International Speedway. Roger Reiman, who specialized in Flat Track racing, won the inaugural DAYTONA 200 at DIS aboard a Harley-Davidson. His average winning speed was 69.260 mph.

March 1964:
The DAYTONA 200 motorcycle race was moved onto the high banks using the full 3.81-mile road course.

March 15, 1970:
Dick Mann rode a smooth and consistent pace aboard his factory Honda to win his first DAYTONA 200 on his 14th attempt. The following year, he earned back-to-back DAYTONA 200 wins aboard a factory BSA machine and set an average speed record of 104.737 mph for the 200-mile race.

March 1984:
Motorcycle legend Kenny Roberts announced his retirement and made his 12th and final start at DIS in the DAYTONA 200 motorcycle classic. He began the race as defending champion and finished a winner again, setting a record race speed of 113.14 mph.

March 1998:
Scott Russell of Conyers, Ga., nicknamed “Mr. Daytona,” won his fifth and final DAYTONA 200 aboard a Yamaha.

March 6, 2004:
The DAYTONA 200, traditionally held on a Sunday afternoon, was moved to Saturday afternoon and was won by Yoshimura Suzuki’s Mat Mladin.

March, 12, 2005:
Canadian Miguel Duhamel won a record fifth DAYTONA 200. Duhamel, riding for factory Honda, tied Scott Russell atop the all-time DAYTONA 200 wins list with five triumphs in the prestigious motorcycle classic.

March 6, 2009:
For the first time in event history, the DAYTONA 200 motorcycle classic was held under the lights. Ben Bostrom was victorious and became the first Yamaha rider to win the DAYTONA 200 since 1998 and the first rider to win the DAYTONA 200 from the pole since 2005.

Just got the word that there will be NO tent camping in the infield of Daytona Speedway.
There will be no access to showers in the infield, and no access to showers for the rider/owner lot.

The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) is adding its support to a legendary racing venue.  On March 10, 2021, AHRMA is unveiling its own plaque for the Daytona 200 Monument during a special gathering in Daytona Beach, Florida.


“The Daytona 200 Monument and AHRMA is a perfect fit,” said Arthur Kowitz, 2021 Chair of the AHRMA Board of Trustees. “We’re keeping the history and memories this monument honors alive by keeping the kinds of bikes that have raced at this event over the years on the race track.”


On January 24, 1937 the first Daytona 200 was held on a 4.2-mile course that included both paved and off-road sections of Daytona Beach. The majority of the motorcycles and riders attending the event during the early years were those participating in the competition.  Eventually, spectators began arriving on their own motorcycles and as the popularity and attendance grew, the race took on a festival atmosphere.  The event would eventually evolve into the internationally known Daytona Bike Week.  The Daytona 200 Motorcycle Race, under normal circumstances, draws more than one half million spectators.


A number of years ago, Dick Klamfoth, three-time winner of the Daytona 200 Motorcycle race, attended a Bike Week and met with Bike Week fans on Main Street in Daytona. He was surprised to learn how few of them knew the history of the 200, and shared his memories of racing on the beach and explained the origins of Bike Week to those who were unaware of its racing heritage. That experience inspired him to create the Daytona 200 Monument to preserve its history.


Thanks to generous donations from the members of the Daytona Beach and racing communities, a location for the monument was secured, construction completed and the monument was dedicated in 2002.  The annual Daytona 200 Monument Gathering draws motorcycle and racing enthusiasts from around the world to witness the installation of new plaques.


The monument is located at 100 N. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach, FL on the beachside of the Daytona Beach Hilton-Ocean Walk Village.  The event will be held on March 10, starting around 10:30am.
