this weekend is turning out to be a rather crazy one when it comes to motorcycle racing. not only do we have the first motogp race of the season but we also have the start to the various ama roadracing series – superbike, supersport, and formula xtreme – in daytona, florida.

i’ve been following american roadracing less and less over the years. superbike and supersport have been dominated by suzuki and kawasaki, respectively.¬†however, the fx series piqued my interest due to the liberal rules and diverse grid (600cc i-4’s to 1350cc air-cooled twins). plus, they get to race¬†the epic daytona 200. it’s also the only class that the 675 can race in.

racing began on thursday and continues through until sat ending with the 200. a complete wrap-up of the racing will be coming soon…
