Buffalo, NY: The Ninth Annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross race hosted one of the biggest two-day amateur events in the U.S., right in the heart of the fabled Daytona International Speedway. Amateur racing kicked off on Sunday following Saturday’s pro racing, and continued through Monday.
Over two days of racing on the toughest Supercross track in the country, Dunlop riders took 32 of the 33 titles up for grabs—including six championships won by Team Dunlop Elite Riders, and five championships won by Team Dunlop Elite alumni. On a track that challenged riders with varied terrain from sand to hard-packed dirt, the versatile Geomax® MX3S was tire of choice for professional and amateur riders alike.
“Daytona was gnarly as always,” said Rob Fox, Dunlop’s Amateur Motocross Manager. “But a lot of really great racers took advantage of the MX3S to find an edge out there, and use it to win. Congratulations to all the Dunlop riders who qualified and then went on to take championships at Daytona.”
From here, Team Dunlop riders head to the Spring a Ding Ding race in Kemp, TX, and JS7 Freestone Spring Nationals in Texas.
