New Daytona course layout

For the sixth time since motorcycles began racing at Daytona International Speedway, competitors will compete on a reconfigured course beginning with next year’s Daytona 200 Bike Week.
The new configuration will exclude NASCAR Turns 1 and 2 and will shorten the course to approximately 3.0 miles. The infield portion of the course has also been altered with the exit of the infield now located after NASCAR Turn 2. The previous length of the motorcycle course was 3.56 miles. The Daytona 200 By Arai, scheduled for March 12, will now be 67 laps instead of 57.
Since 1961, when motorcycles began competing at DIS, the course configuration has changed five times with distances varying from 2 miles to 3.87 miles. This is the first change since 1985.
