Daytona SX tickets???


Hey guys, I'm headin to Orlando next week for Spring Break to visit a friend. They only live an hour from Daytona, so I was kinda thinking of headin to the Daytona SX while I'm there.

Couple questions:

1. Do they sell tickets for this race at the gate or do they have to be purchased in advance. Reason being is I'm not totally sure that we ar going to go, so I don't want to waste money in buying them if we're not going to use them.

2. If we go, where are the best seats(tickets) to get, so that we can see everything good.

3. If we go, what time should we look to get there. I believe that racing starts at like 7 or 8, so would getting there at about 5 o 7 work????

I have never been to a supercross before so I have no clue how things move along.

Thanks :lol:

The night show starts at 8 but there will be practice, etc. all day after about noon.

I'm not really sure if you can buy tickets at the gate but I can assure you they will be all the way at the end of the grandstand if you do get them and they will suck. Your best bet will be to pay the extra $15 and stand down on the track if you can't get good seats. Good seats will be anything labeled as a "tower seat" (eg. Whetherly Tower).

You can get tickets at the gate. General admission is $30 in advance. I'm not sure if there is a price increase on the day of the race but it will NOT sell out. If you want to get track side its an extra $15. Track side is good for practice but it's too close and too crowded to see the race well. Its better to get up in the stands for the race. We were on the upper deck last year during the monsoon and you could see everything, just bring some binoculars.

Does anyone know if Daytona is going to be on TV this year? Sucks that it never is for people like me who will most likely never make to to a supercross event.

      I'm sure some of you have already seen him wearing this kitten stuff but I though It was just on the back of his helmet.   Guess thor persuaded him (or paid him) to put this stuff on.  Or Muskrat is a just a weird guy.

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Rider Starts his Quest to Defend Cross-Country Rallies World Championship
      March 15, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla will re-start his 2018 international rally racing campaign on March 24 to 29 at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge in the United Arab Emirates. Working hard towards returning to full competitive fitness following a foot injury sustained during the closing stages of the Dakar Rally, Pablo’s teammate Andrew Short is expected to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad at the 2018 Merzouga Rally in mid-April.

      With the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge playing host to the opening round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the event in the UAE will see Pablo Quintanilla begin the defence of his FIM Cross-Country World Championship title. Securing eighth overall at the 2018 Dakar Rally in January, the Chilean rally star is already looking forward to a solid return to racing aboard his FR 450 Rally machine.
      Successfully wrapping up his debut participation at the prestigious Dakar Rally with a top 20 result, Andrew Short has been recuperating from a fractured tibia and fibula on his lower right leg. Resuming his training sessions in the middle of March, the American has his eyes set on making a return to racing at the Merzouga Rally on April 15/20, in the dunes of Morocco.
      Celebrating its 28th edition in 2018, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is a six-stage-long rally taking place in the southern part of the United Arab Emirates. Kicking off with the traditional Super Special Stage on Saturday, March 24, the event will continue with five more days of racing in the Liwa Desert before competitors reach the finish line inside the Yas Marina circuit on March 29, 2018.

      Pablo Quintanilla: “Abu Dhabi will be our first race after the Dakar and I’m really looking forward to it. It’d be good to start the season carrying the #1 plate on my Husqvarna as the reigning champion. With it being the first race for the new season, it is important for everybody. My goal is to get a good race pace from the beginning in order to be inside the group of leading riders. The season will be long and my plan is to continue improving my pace as the racing goes on. I want to get back my racing speed and also remain strong throughout the event in Abu Dhabi. Taking place in deep sandy dunes, the Desert Challenge is always a tough event and it is also highly probable that we will have to race in high temperatures. It’s going to be a challenge but I’m looking forward to it.”

      *pic is my goal if I can or at least as close*
      Hi there, I'm currently looking at buying a second hand KTM EXC 450 and converting to supermoto. I have converted a DRZ400E but everyone knows they are piss easy. I have read a bit about exc sumo rim sizes and have found a few people struggle with chain rubbing on rear with 4.25x17. 
      Just wanting any tips or advice from someone who has done it before and what works best.
      Also any other tips or advice for converting to sumo (etc. exhausts, steering dampers, handbrake setup, frame sliders/protection, hand guards, any thing else that is a must for this model).
      I live in New Zealand and don't mind spending a bit on parts but would like to buy the rims here as it would be faster/a lot cheaper.
      Any advice is appreciated, cheers.

      A Split Start gate and that Whoop section seems extra looong.
