Even though the it's not really fair. If it brings more fans into racing I'm all for it. The Daytona 200 should be interesting just because of this... Still think there should be two or possibly 3 classes. 600cc, 1000cc, and 1300cc (anything goes class).



The 1300cc class would allow turbo chargers, anything configuration but a hard CC limit to 13000. A poor man's version of MotoGP if you will.



The 600 and 1000cc classes would use a heat system of Saturdays to limit the field on the finals on Sundays. 2 heats per class, 2 final races per class.

don't be a **** KP it will be uphill battle for Buell but lots of fun if they are close! actually biggest Yamaha advantage may be that kid Disalvo i think is coming into his own and he can't weigh more than about 130 pounds.

Kudos to Erik for giving it a shot at least. For 30k i think they are losing money. nice change of pace from business as usual attitude of big 4.

Buell huh? That's a good reason to watch the Daytona 200 other than I haven't seen any road racing for 4 months.
