DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (December 13, 2023) – Daytona International Speedway today unveiled the highly anticipated course layout for the 2024 DAYTONA Supercross, Florida’s only AMA Supercross event of the season, taking place during Bike Week Presented by Monster Energy.
Five-time DAYTONA Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael has designed yet another grueling course for the 17th consecutive year, with the 2024 layout presenting some very different challenges for riders than in years past.
“Ricky continues to amaze year-after-year with his course creativity, and seeing the layout he’s constructed this time around is no different,” said Frank Kelleher, President of Daytona International Speedway. “Both riders and fans are going to have a blast with this course and all that action-packed racing it presents. It’s for sure going to be another electrifying DAYTONA Supercross.”
The 2024 course layout is quite a switch up compared to previous DAYTONA Supercross courses – literally. Riders will now ride in the opposite direction alongside the famous frontstretch at Daytona International Speedway, going from right to left towards the track’s Turn 4.
“There are a lot of fun things about this racetrack for sure,” said Carmichael. “We’ve got the tunnel jump which is an iconic feature of DAYTONA Supercross, but what you’re going to see that’s a little different from years past is wherever there isn’t a jump, we wanted to keep as much of the natural grass as possible, just because it kind of chews up and progresses throughout the night and gets these natural lines rather than manmade lines that you’d see at a normal racetrack.
“One of my favorite parts is the beach sand. I think we all can agree, outside of the split lane, just how much drama that section creates. So many ruts develop, breaking bumps, guys are powering through there, dirt’s flying…so keep your eyes on that.”
Last time these riders took center stage at the World Center of Racing, Eli Tomac made history, besting his own record to become “The King” of DAYTONA Supercross after securing his seventh victory at the famed track. Tomac is currently tied with “The King” of NASCAR, Richard Petty, for most wins at Daytona International Speedway, and is looking to further his accomplishments with an eighth win in 2024.
“Daytona is so unique because the track is a living beast, it changes throughout the day,” said Tomac. “I’ve been lucky enough to win the event seven times so when you go across that finish line, and you’ve got all the fans right there with you enjoying the moment… in that aspect, there’s nothing like it.”
The 54th annual DAYTONA Supercross takes place on March 2, 2024, with riders tackling Carmichael’s course under the lights at Daytona International Speedway as part of Bike Week Presented by Monster Energy.
Bike Week is a ten-day motorcycle celebration kicking off on March 1, and continuing through March 10, following the intense, high-speed racing of the DAYTONA 200 running from March 7-9.
