Daytona Beach, Florida (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Daytona Bike Week has been a tradition since January 24, 1937—the first year of the Daytona 200. The inaugural Daytona 200 race took place on the beach and Ed Kretz was the first winner on his Indian motorcycle. These races continued from 1927 to 1941 and were also known as the Handlebar Derbies. These races were briefly discontinued from 1942-1946 for World War II, but resumed again in 1947 when the race featured a record 176 riders.
In 1948, a new beach and road course was used to accommodate more riders and to avoid developments along the beach. The last Daytona 200 to be held on the beach took place in 1960, and in 1961, the race was moved to the Daytona International Speedway.
Today, Daytona Bike Week has evolved into a 10-day festival that goes way beyond motorcycle racing—and Daytona. The festival itself expands throughout Volusia County and there are hundreds of motorcycle events to enjoy. Annually, the Daytona Bike Week welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors, tourists, and motorcyclists and is a legendary event.
