Sixth annual amateur Supercross welcomes fresh changes for 2015.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (January 29, 2015) – With only five weeks until the sixth annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross, MX Sports and the G.O.A.T himself are pleased to share the Ricky Carmichael Signature-Designed Daytona Supercross track layout for 2015. For the eighth straight year, the 15-time champion has added his expertise to the professional course design, which will become a legendary amateur supercross track on Sunday, March 8 and Monday, March 9.
The 2015 Daytona Supercross track will have a fresh look, with the starting gate moving to the west end of the tri-oval. Moreover, the legendary Daytona racetrack will run in reverse, something that hasn’t been done in quite some time. Carmichael adds, “It’s so cool to be able to lend a hand in designing one of the most famous tracks in supercross history, but it’s even better to bring that same design to amateur racers the very next day.”
While the track design will be almost identical to Saturday’s Daytona Supercross by Honda – where the fastest professional racers in the world go to battle – the obstacles will be tamed to accommodate amateur racers of all ages and skill levels.
“As soon as the pro supercross finishes up on Saturday night, it’s all hands on deck to re-work the Daytona Supercross track and get it ready for 7:30 a.m. amateur practice on Sunday morning,” said MX Sports Director Tim Cotter.
The sixth annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross will take place Sunday, March 8 and Monday, March 9, 2015. Classes for this prestigious event are filling up quickly and many classes are sold out. For more information on available classes, please visit www.racedaytona.com.
