It will be the first round of the REV’IT Twins Cup Championship, plus there will be the Roland Sands Design’s Super Hooligans race. All three classes will compete in two races over Friday and Saturday. 

DAYTONA Supercross is the longest continuous Supercross race in America dating back to 1971 and features the best riders in the world.
