2020 Daytona 200 Canceled

The 79th Daytona 200 presented by Comoto, one of America’s most historic motorcycle road races, held at Daytona International Speedway, has officially been canceled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and operated by the American Sportbike Racing Association (ASRA), the Daytona 200 presented by Comoto was postponed from its original date of March 14 and rescheduled to be a part of Fall Cycle Scene on Saturday, Oct. 17. 

In addition, the Midway, located between the venue and International Speedway Blvd., as well as Harley-Davidson Thunder Alley and all of its activities during Fall Cycle Scene, will not be in operation. 

“The Daytona 200 presented by Comoto is a very important part of Daytona International Speedway and the fabric of our great community,” said track president Chip Wile. “We are all faced with difficult decisions this year, and this was definitely one of them. We will miss not having the iconic motorcycle race and fans in our region but look forward to welcoming the event back as part of Bike Week 2021.”

The 2021 Daytona 200 presented by Comoto is scheduled to return on Saturday, March 13, 2021, during Bike Week at Daytona (March 5-14). The 57-lap, 200-mile event will showcase 600cc sportbikes on the Speedway’s 3.51-mile Daytona Road Course. Kyle Wyman is the event’s latest winner, capturing the checkered flag in March of 2019.

Customers who purchased tickets to the 2020 Daytona 200 presented by Comoto will be offered a 120% credit to any American Flat Track (AFT) events race held through October 2021 or a full refund. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
