Mention Daytona International Speedway and most people probably think of stock car racing, but for 50 years now it’s also been home to one of the biggest dirt bike races, the Daytona Supercross. The Daytona 500 takes place at the end of Speed Week in February, followed in early March by Bike Week, of which the Daytona Supercross has become the centerpiece event. The stock car race and the dirt bike race could not be more different, though there was a night in 2012 when they seemingly meshed together over the 16 laps of the Daytona SX.
We are deeply rooted in Moto—We’ve been here all our lives. Back in 1998 when we turned an underground newspaper into a shiny color magazine, it immediately changed the game with its unprecedented depth of coverage, sense of humor, and access to the sport’s biggest names. Today, our readers know they can go to Racer X Online for all the news, race results, and event coverage they need, and then enjoy even more detail and perspective in the pages of Racer X Illustrated. The mag offers a chance to learn something new on every page and stay connected with the people and personalities that shape our sport—the competitors out on the racetrack, as well as the ones behind the scenes—through our exclusive deep-dive stories and columns.
Our trademark has always been insider knowledge from the experts who are at the races and around the sport. We have long prided ourselves on our unparalleled race reporting and detailed storytelling. We go deep with the riders and teams to provide comprehensive coverage you won’t find anywhere else—all with first-class photography and design. It’s a full education in motocross past, present, and future.
