The AMA Pro Road Racing season opener at Daytona International Speedway will see a grand total of $235,500 up for grabs across all classes.
Traditionally the richest round on the AMA Pro Road Racing schedule, this year's Daytona 200 season-kickoff event is no exception. A total of $235,500 will be up for grabs when the series returns to Daytona International Speedway, the purse spread throughout the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike, Daytona SportBike, Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport, and Vance & Hines XR1200 classes.
The 70th running of the legendary Daytona 200, which reverts to its traditional Saturday-afternoon start this year, will offer a bristling field of Daytona SportBike riders 57 laps to fight for a $20,000 winner's purse. The event's second- and third-place finishers will claim $15,000 and $10,000, respectively, with the remaining $64,500 paying down through 20th position.
Each of the two 15-lap AMA Pro National Guard Superbike races will award a $51,000 purse, for a double-header total of $102,000. Superbike race-winners will take home $10,000 per victory, with the remaining $41,000 paying through 15th position.
