Daytona 200 Photographs

The Daytona 200 was great. The crowds were big,  but not too big.  I used to ride a Kawasaki KZ 1000. It felt great to be at the track, smelling the fuel, checking out the other fans, and the general racing scene.

The last Daytona 200 I saw was in 1993.  It's been a few years since I was at Daytona for a race.   Looking at all the great bikes really made me want another one! The racing was good and competitive.   Because I don't normally follow AMA racing, I didn't really know that much about the machines and the riders.

There was only one negative.  I had to check out the new Nextel "Fan Zone". What a ripoff!  They have restricted access and charge fans an extra 15 dollars for the privilege. Other than the so-called "Fan Zone", I had a wonderful time.
