2011 Daytona 200 Offers a $235K Purse

Considered to be the most rewarding round on the AMA Pro Road Racing schedule, this year’s Daytona 200 season kick-off event comes with a total of $235,750 up for grabs. This amount is spread throughout the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike, Daytona SportBike, SuperSport, and Vance & Hines XR1200 classes.

The 70th running of the legendary Daytona 200, which returns to Daytona International Speedway this year, will see a field of Daytona SportBike riders that will fight head-to-head for 57 laps in order to make the $20,000 winner’s purse theirs.

The event’s second- and third-place finishers will claim $15,000 and $10,000, respectively, with the remaining $64,500 paying down through 20th position.

Each of the two 15-lap AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike races will award a $51,000 purse, for a double-header total of $102,000. SuperBike race-winners will take home $10,000 per victory, with the remaining $41,000 paying through 15th position.

The SuperSport class—for which Daytona serves as a combination East/West Division event—will offer a total of $7,000 per 10-lap race, each winner claiming a $1,500 purse and the remaining prize money paying through tenth position.

The Vance & Hines XR1200 class, making its inaugural appearance at Daytona International Speedway and boasting the largest field the division’s seen yet, will race for $10,250 in prize money. The winner will take $3,750, with the remainder paying through tenth position.

“The stakes are high for AMA Pro’s road race stars, and fans who emerge from Daytona International Speedway’s tunnels into the legendary infield for the March 12 event will experience a full slate of pit-stops, autograph sessions, fan walks, vendors and exhibitors, live entertainment, and more,”
a statement from AMA Pro Racing reads.
