It all began in 1937 with a 3.2 mile motorcycle race called the Dayton
200. The race was won by Ed Kretz, a Californian who rode an Indian,
(that's a motorcyle). Average speed: 73 mph.
Although the race
suspended from 1942 to 1946 due to World War II, an unofficial event,
called Bike Week, still took place.
When the race resumed in 1947, it was under the promotional
guidance of "Big Bill" France, co-founder of NASCAR.
Today, the International Speedway Corporation
promotes the Daytona 200,
held on 15 March 2014, along with an entire Daytona Bike Week of
related events at Daytona
International Speedway, including the Honda sponsored Daytona
Supercross on 8 March 2014.
