|What is Daytona 200?|
The Daytona 200 is a yearly motorcycle race in Daytona Beach, Florida. When it was first founded, the race actually took place on the beach as part of a week-long celebration of motorcycling (accompanied by many crashes and a few fatalities). But in 1961, the event was moved to the Daytona International Speedway. The 200 mile race is typically part of a week of events and festivities at the Speedway. There is a huge motorcycle marketplace, free demo rides, and a number of bike races. Crowds of 500,000 spectators fill the stands for this annual sport bike racing event. The champion of the speedway walks away with a famed Rolex Cosmograph Daytona—a watch worth well into the five figures.
