Man, we are plum tuckered.  We’ve been to Daytona Bike Week in the past as spectators and participants but never tried to work 50 hours and enjoy all that Daytona has to offer bikers. We did enjoy a week off between the Daytona 500 and all the events that surround it and the beginning of Bike Week. This gave us the opportunity to move from Tom and Debbie’s house to a beautiful spot right on the speedway property. The situation relaxed dramatically after the 500 and with our temporary employers getting to know us a little better, they offered us a spot with full hookups and cable tv.

Our new location is a couple hundred yards from turn 1 which is basically in the pit area for the flat track. The flat track is one of the three main venues at the speedway.

Then there is the “souper”cross. Another big event where mother nature added an interesting twist. But we all know that real racers don’t let a little rain stop them.

The supercross and flat track events are great, but the big event is the Daytona 200.

As of today, at the end of the Daytona 200 superbike event, our temporary employment with International Speedway Corporation/Daytona International Speedway, has concluded. We’ve enjoyed our time here and it has been great to be a part of the 2 months of events that were held at the track. Bike Week is an event that spreads far beyond the track and this year due to it being postponed for 1 week, it also included college kids here on spring break. We will include a slide show to share our memories of our “Daytona Vacation”
