Ken Roczen’s bike has a retro look for Daytona this year. 


The Daytona Supercross marks round 10 of the 2020 AMA Monster Energy Supercross season. Many riders say that Daytona is when the season gets real. Riders start to peak and you have a better idea of who will be the top dogs of the 450 class. As it stand, the two top dogs who are tied for points coming into the Daytona SX are Ken Roczen and Eli Tomac both with 200 points. In third you have Justin Barcia at 177 and the reigning champion Cooper Webb with a 176 points for forth. You can’t count Webb out. After Cooper’s huge crash in Arlington, nobody thought he would be back racing the next weekend. In fact he did and got on the podium with an amazing ride. Cooper is tough and will keep charging to attain the 450 SX crown once again.

We had our photog, Brian Converse stroll through Daytona to see what was going on the Friday before the race. Happy scrolling.
