Daytona 2013 may be the first purpose-built Supercross track designed to challenge not only the riders cajone’s but their 4 stroke machines as well. It was a “Super Motocross” track in all senses of the word. Actually, maybe “Moto Supercross” track would be more technically appropriate. After all, Supercross tracks are built on flat ground, which this is and the major departure from the status quo here was loose dirt, some of it tractable, other sections loose and deep.
