Since the 200 went to 600's.....Honda has raced with a stacked deck. It's like they are the factory beating up on the local guys. Might be better this year.....but in the past it's been a 2 rider race...both Hondas. But then again last year with the incompetence of the AMA once again.....they screwed that up with the pace car fiasco!!!! I could go on and on but the AMA is pretty much a joke when it comes to racing......compared to WSBK and MotoGP anyway. My pick will be......a Honda.

The Daytona 200 hasn't been the same since the 750 GP bikes went 200 miles, pit stops and all.
The older Duhamel was racing then.

And Marcos, that was the last time I went to Daytona.
Oh, and no more old man jokes!

Default Hayes for Daytona

My pick will be for Hayes as he is a buddy of mine. It doesn't matter how fast they go down pitroad atleast they can do more than take a car that is setup to turn left and go around a banked track and make it turn left. And they also will not be complaining about how dangerous racing is and how they need more safety. Who needs more than a 1.5mm suit of leather? But i do agree the ama is a joke.

Default Suzuki Superbike domination in AMA again,again,again,again!!

Funny how Honda...which has vast resources...cannot even begin to challenge the Yosh team.....which is small in comparision. Now with Spies up to speed....they have to not only battle Mladin...now Spies....with Tommy Haden thrown in for clean up duties.....hahaha!!! Looks like another tough year for Honda,Yamaha, and Kawasaki!!! I love it.

Yes Muguel is one of the genuine good guys in the paddock. Too bad he is stuck with a Honda superbike. Miguel is the reason they even finish close to the Suziki. Look at Jake Zemke.....he can't even get out of his own way anymore. Hit and miss with Jake.
