The Ricky Carmichael-designed 2021 Daytona Supercross track features all of the things the sport has come expect from Daytona—lots of sand, big jumps, long whoops sections, high speeds, long lap times and bumps, bumps and more bumps. After the previous 8 rounds were held in a hurry-up schedule, with three races in Houston, three races in Indianapolis and two races in Orlando (often on the same track or the same track layout with the lanes reversed), the 2021 Daytona Supercross is a one-and-done Supercross on a track that is often considered to be the precursor of who will be the prime contenders when the AMA National Motocross season starts in late May. Plus, with this year’s 450 Supercross series locked in a tight battle, with only 6 points separating points leader Ken Roczen from KTM’s Cooper Webb, the Daytona winner could take a big bite of the points—especially because of how difficult Daytona can be. As for the 250 West riders, who will hold a race at Daytona for the first time ever (it has always been a 250 East race). The 250 West series is only one race old, so anyone can leave Daytona as the points leader.
