Daytona’s MotoFest weekend includes sidecar races (yes, sidecars!)
“MotoFest” returns to Daytona this weekend for the first time since 2015. And for the first time since motorcycles started racing at the Speedway in 1961, the list of events includes sidecar races.
The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Classic MotoFest kicks off the 2022 motorcycle racing season Friday through Sunday at Daytona International Speedway. Off-Road MX, Dirt Track and a full list of road races will be featured on the Daytona Road Course and Tri-Oval Track, as well as on the Dirt Track and “Hayfield” near the Speedway.
THROUGH THE GEARS:NASCAR is about to go back and remember that John Madden commercial?
START YOUR ENGINES !:After the holiday lull, the racing season will resume in January; some dates to remember:
The AHRMA honors the legacy of Daytona Superbike this weekend by introducing the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight as its flagship class of the Vintage Cup. The first installment of the 2022 Vintage Cup Heavyweight Superbike series takes place on Saturday at the circuit where the cycle class made its debut 45 years ago.
In addition to this paved action, there will be Vintage and Post-Vintage MX on a 135 acre grassy and wooded site (Lot 7). Nighttime dirt track action will also be featured on Daytona’s quarter-mile flat track off the West Rim.
During the three days, the infield of the Speedway will be open at the campsite. Infield events will also include a Swap Meet and Bike Show, which will feature local and national vintage motorcycle clubs.
Three-day general admission tickets cost $ 60 and include access to the stands and paddock.
