Friday Flashback: The 1989 Daytona 200

Jean Turner | March 13, 2009

Welcome to our first edition Friday Flashback! Each week will feature a blast from the past with a vintage Cycle News article from either 10, 20, 30 or 40 years ago. This week, take a look back 20 years ago to John Ashmead winning the 1989 Daytona 200 aboard his privateer Honda VFR750 Superbike, written by Brian Catterson (now the Editor of Motorcyclist magazine).We will be taking requests for future Friday Flashbacks, so be sure to voice your opinion in the comments section.
