HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (March 9, 2013) – Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. was host to round 10 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. The warm sunshine was in sharp contrast to the torrential downpour that occurred at last year’s event, in which Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX riders finished first and second. SPEED covered all of the racing from Daytona live.
As reported previously Kyle Chisholm was injured in St. Louis and spent the week with his doctors evaluating the extent of the injuries and the best course of action for a full recovery. Chisholm’s prognosis is a broken fibula and some relatively minor knee damage. To insure a full recovery Chisholm will undergo surgery this Tuesday. He should return to riding in six to eight weeks. In spite of being wheelchair bound, the always enthusiastic Chisholm made the trip to Daytona where he signed autographs and took pictures with fans.
Josh Grant, who is recovering from a shoulder injury that required surgery also made the trip to Daytona to sign autographs and support the launch of the all new Yamaha motorcycle dubbed the Bolt by Yamaha’s cruiser brand, Star Motorcycles. The Bolt and Bolt R Spec were unveiled at the speedway Saturday prior to the race. The new Bolt and Bolt R Spec are surprisingly affordable yet stylish and contemporary in appearance. Grant will be on the gate for the start of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship on May 18 at the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, Calif.
Justin Brayton transferred directly to the main event from his heat race. Unfortunately he encountered difficulty almost right away going down in the early laps. Brayton rejoined the race and began to charge but suffered another crash ending his night. He does not appear to have any serious injury, but was bruised and sore. He is expected to race this Saturday night. Brayton was credited with 20th place.
Round 11 of the series will visit Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. on March 16. SPEED will once again broadcast the race live in its entirety starting at 7:30 p.m. (EST). Supercross Live will begin streaming from Indianapolis at 2:00 p.m. (EST) on supercrossonline.com.
