DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 21, 2007) - Highlighted by the return of "Mr. Daytona" and the second annual 8 Hours at Daytona, Fall Cycle Scene wrapped up at historic Daytona International Speedway on Sunday. On track, Saturday night's second annual 8 Hours At Daytona SunTrust MOTO -ST Series saw the No. 18 Roadracingworld.com Suzuki with riders Chris Ulrich, Gary Mason and Cory West capture the Series' season finale. "It's huge, to win at Daytona is huge," Ulrich said. "It's huge. It's Daytona. It's the World Center of Racing. I've been wanting to win some stuff at Daytona for a long time and I finally won some stuff." Motorcycle legend Scott "Mr. Daytona" Russell, tied with Miguel Duhamel with a record five Daytona 200 By Honda victories, showed up at DIS racing a Kawasaki 650 for Pair-A Nines Racing in the SunTrust MOTO-ST Series finale Saturday as well. Halfway through the race, however, Russell high sided in the east horseshoe. "I got out there, maybe I was a little bit off lined, just whacked the throttle too hard and it swung me off the top," he said after a 33rd overall and 14the class finish in the GrandSport Twins class with co-riders Kent Kunitsugi and Brett McCormick. The No. 9 Pair-A-Nines Kawasaki team clinched the Sport Twins Team title at Daytona despite suffering a blown engine on its Kawasaki EX650 while leading the class by a lap. The team had enough of an advantage that it was still classified seventh and beat the Go Big Racing Suzuki team, which finished second in the race, by five points in the standings, 187-182. Shawn Higbee, who suffered a compound broken femur, a dislocated shoulder, a broken shoulder bone and a hip joint fracture in a nasty crash at Iowa Speedway in July, also returned to DIS to compete in the SunTrust MOTO-ST Series Finale, placing 22nd overall and 8th in the GST Class. Off track, three days of "must-see" activities included free manufacturer demo rides, a 111-bike Monster Dash charity ride on the high-banks of DIS, International Master Bike Builders Row, the Jagemeister Mobile Stage and free admission to The Daytona 500 Experience. "What a fantastic weekend of racing and entertainment for the thousands of bikers who came through the historic Turn Four Tunnel," said DIS President Robin Braig. "We're already thinking of ways to make next year's experience even more memorable." Sandwiched around the SunTrust MOTO-ST event, were Saturday and Sunday's on-track competition in the ASRA Championship Series and Championship Cup Series events.
