I’m sorry, but Daytona should be 20 laps + 1. It’s Daytona.

You’re a fan of shorter races.

Ok.

It'll be the same length as every other race this year, not shorter.

OK.

Yes when the laptimes were in the 1:30 range.

And they should let Gary Bailey design the course again. Bring back the buried telephone poles and the infield section to lengthen the track. And no clay. Sand is a fine racing surface.

OK.

Daytona has always been 20 laps. Whether it was 1:40 per lap, or 1:10 per lap. Always twenty laps.

This year, at 1:12 per lap, it will be 16.66 (17 laps) plus one for a total of 18.

That’s the difference.

OK.

It was 12 laps back in the early to mid 80s

And while we're on a moan up, why don't they run it during the day.

When & why was it turned into a night race?

|

3/10/2018 11:58 AM

Yes it would be great if it was longer,but it is what is,So my suggestion is to just enjoy a day at the track watching the best SX riders in the world race a shorter than we would like race.
Who ever holeshots will be happy it's a bit shorter.w00t

Some kind of conflict with the Daytona 200 roadbike race I believe ? Do they even run that race anymore ?

Fuckin' hell, last year Daytona was 20 laps and people complained saying that they shouldn't make one race a different length, now people are complaining that it's not 20 laps..
