This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Daytona Bike Week, which runs March 4-13. The racing kicks off on Saturday, March 5, with the Daytona Supercross, followed by Flat Track racing on the 10th and 11th on the Daytona Flat Track outside turns 1 and 2 of the super speedway. And there’s more good news — for 2016, the Daytona 200 returns, featuring American SportBike Racing Association’s (ASRA) 600cc sport bikes racing on Daytona’s famed road course.

Back for its sixth year, the Modern Classics Motorcycle Show will feature the competition machines of “Motocross, Trials and Enduros.” About half of the 100 show bikes come from a featured category, and this year attendees will enjoy a variety of dirt machines from the 1960s through the 1990s. More highlights include a display of the very first production Britten (SN P0001), and also the return of artist Makoto Endo, who last year entertained the crowd with a rendition of a 1931 Indian Scout. Check out the Friday Night Modern Classics “Kick-Start” Party from 7-10 p.m. at the show’s home, Martin Motorsports in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.
