No Daytona 200 in 2015?

“After having multiple discussions with Moto America/KRAVE regarding a sanction agreement for 2015 Daytona 200, we were unable to find common ground on a business model that would be beneficial for both parties. We wish MotoAmerica/KRAVE the best as they begin their inaugural season in 2015.

Daytona International Speedway will continue to be the driving force behind Bike Week, hosting a wide range of activities for all ages including the Daytona Supercross, the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross and the AMA Pro Flat Track doubleheader, as well as demo rides, displays and vendors. We will continue to look for partners to assist in running the Daytona 200.”

Screw Daytona, screw the last decade of AMA failure to keep the sport alive and instead drive it into the ground with stupid rules and outrageous fines/fees and making it about profit and not racing. Hopefully Krave isn't the same but i'm not holding my breath. Go to new tracks, new states, hold more rounds.

Times...they be a changin'.

I'm certainly VERY hopeful that MotoAmerica will bring this series back into prime time from the depths of hell it's currently in, but I'm sad to see Daytona off the calendar. It is a shitty track for racing motorcycles, but it was still an iconic race to kick-start the season in February. I've been multiple times over the last few decades and it is fun to attend just to be a part of.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

April 10-12 Circuit of the Americas – Austin, Texas (2 classes, MotoGP support races)

April 17-19 Road Atlanta – Braselton, Georgia

May 15-17 Virginia International Raceway (VIR) – Alton, Virginia

May 29-31 Road America – Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin

June 12-14 Barber Motorsports Park – Birmingham, Alabama

August 7-9 Indianapolis Motor Speedway – Indianapolis, Indiana * (2 classes, MotoGP support races)

September 11-13 New Jersey Motorsports Park – Millville, New Jersey

TBD Laguna Seca – Monterey, California (WSBK Support Race)
Aligning themselves with MotoGP and WSBK, and they have 8 weekends lined up already, and state that a 9th is in the works. I'd put money on another west coast round at either Sears Point or Miller. Plus they supposedly have a TV deal lined up already.
