First and foremost, huge congratulations to Josh Herrin on claiming in thrilling fashion, a second Daytona 200 victory.
Just over 0.13 of a second covered the top three finishers, with Josh Hayes, Cameron Petersen placing respectively second, third.
From a pure road racing perspective, those with prior roads course experience all endured disappointing fortunes.
2012 Newcomers A Manx GP winner Kamil Holan, slid off uninjured out of contention on lap 10 whilst Canada’s most recent TT exponent Darren James, America’s fastest Manx GP racer Chris Sarbora also failed to make the conclusion of the overall 62 laps long, re-started 81st Daytona 200.
Quick mention as well for top UK runner, Matt Truelove, finishing a solid ninth.
Back in 2021, the top competitors from UK shores were Max Flinders and 21 times TT winner Michael Dunlop.
The current Supersport TT lap record holder, finished a respectable eleventh post his first racing stint around the illustrious Daytona International Speedway.
