From CJ: (2nd place – Hess Gas station drag race – 2005)
Go to the Hess gas station every night, where you can watch illegal-drag-race enthusiasts try to intimidate one another; then go out back and have your bike dynoed in the dyno trailer.
Check out the monument to the old beach racers, near 100 North Atlantic Ave.
Check out a road race! The Superbike race goes down Saturday morning, and with all the top factory racers in the class, this season promises to be a good one. The Daytona 200, which will be campaigned by the Lockhart Phillips Formula Xtreme class, is Saturday afternoon.
Go to Razzle’s and count the top road racers as they get punched out by drunken Spring Breakers. “Razzle’s: More fun than an Anarchists’ Rally in Seattle.” Then head over to the Cabbage Patch for potato salad wrestling.
From Ping: (3rd place – 1997 125cc main after leading 13 laps with a broken finger)
Lose a limb in the Atlantic! The Florida coast has more shark bites than any other location in the world with the exception of Australia. In fact, there is an inlet just south of Daytona that is a favorite feeding spot of “The tax collector in the grey suit.” Happy swimming!
Go to the Daytona USA facility on Speedway Blvd. and see a bunch of old racecars, plus Kevin Harvick’s 2007 race winning car. Or wait five years to see RC’s 2012 Daytona 500 winning car!
Go to the Dog Track and bet on dogs that are running your favorite rider’s number. Mine’s K9.
