2023 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS PRE-RACE REPORT: TV SCHEDULE, INJURED LIST & MORE

2023 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS PRE-RACE REPORT: TV SCHEDULE, INJURED LIST & MORE

Daytona is easily one of the most anticipated races of the year and it’s no surprise as to why—it Is the longest running venue in Supercross, dating back to 1971. Yep, that’s even older than MXA by two years. Daytona’s unique mix of both Supercross and motocross elements combines into an exciting day of racing. However, things are changing a bit this year, or are they? This year’s 2023 Daytona Supercross will be doing something different, by not changing anything. Ricky Carmichael has been the artist behind the Daytona track layout for years now and this year, he has decided to keep the same layout as last season, allowing riders to watch footage and “master” the track similar to outdoors or car racing.

Find out everything you need to know about the upcoming round held at Daytona International Speedway.

2023 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS TRACK MAP

One of those games of “spot the difference” between these two tracks.

The 2023 Daytona Supercross track layout is not changing this year. Ricky Carmichael has elected to stick with the same layout so that the riders could master the course similar to an outdoors track or car track. But there is one change, can you find it?

EVERY DAYTONA SUPERCROSS WINNER (1974-2022)


WILL ELI WIN FOR THE SEVENTH TIME AT DAYTONA?

It’s insane enough to win one Daytona Supercross Main Event, but to win Daytona six times, as Eli Tomac has, makes you a certified mad man. Eli is also looking faster than ever this season, but the 450 points race is incredibly close.
 
Two-time winner James Stewart won in 2007 and 2012.

MARVIN MUSQUIN – WRIST

Marvin Musquin 2023 Anaheim 1 Supercross-368433-year-old Marvin Musquin injured his wrist in a practice crash after Anaheim 1. KTM announced last week that he is out indefinitely with a scaphoid injury. The scaphoid bone is a delicate one that doesn’t receive a lot of blood flow, meaning that it can die off if it isn’t allowed to heal properly. Marvin had a one-year, Supercross-only contract for 2023 with KTM and we are unsure what his future will look like if he doesn’t race anymore this season. 

CARSON MUMFORD – (INJURY UNKNOWN)

Carson Mumford 2023 San Diego Supercross-0392Carson Mumford was slated to race for BarX Suzuki this year, but a bike malfunction in pre-season training caused him to crash and break his wrist. Then, once Austin Forkner injured his knee at Anaheim 1, Carson got the call to fill-in at Pro Circuit Kawasaki in the 250 West Coast division, starting at Oakland. Unfortunately, he suffered a setback while training. The injury hasn’t been publicly announced, but Carson didn’t race in Oakland, instead his sights are set on Seattle SX, March 25th.

SETH HAMMAKER – WRIST

GARRETT MARCHBANKS – WRIST

Garrett Marchbanks Brandon Haas ClubMX YamahaGarrett suffered an arm injury during his pre-season training at the Club MX facility. ClubMX gave us an update on Garrett last week week: “Surgery went well for the Daytona champion as he had the plate removed from his wrist on Monday. The next step is to get the stitches removed in another week and then start the rebuilding process. Garrett continues to work with the team and also works as a trainer helping the amateurs every day. We appreciate his dedication and participation to help continue the growth of the ClubMX program by giving back his time. A bit more time will help us determine when he can return to racing.”
