After two full days of racing, the 4th Annual Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross is in the books and it was another very successful event, which produced more than 1000 entries on the Sunday following Saturday night’s Daytona Supercross by Honda, March 10-11.
Held on the infield of the Daytona International Speedway, amateurs got the chance to compete on the same course as the pros did Saturday night, though the track was toned down slightly. Sunday’s racing featured practice and heat races, while Monday’s final day produced 32 class champions, who were awarded their prizes by the GOAT himself, Ricky Carmichael.
Some of the big winners included Florida’s own RJ Hampshire who grabbed two championships, one in the 450 A/Pro Sport class and the other in the College (17-14) division. He also placed fourth in the 250 A/Pro Sport division, which was won by Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Thomas Covington. He also placed third in the 450 A/Pro Sport class.
Another Floridian, Jordan Bailey, had a good couple of day in the Mini division. He came away with one championship in the 85 (9-13) class and followed that up with a fourth in the Super Mini (12-16) class, which was won by Florida’s own Raymyller Alves.
Racing in the Women and Girls classes was intense, with Kaitlyn Morrow and Jazzmyn Canfield coming out on top. Morrow out dueled Kylie Fasnacht and Mackenzie Tricker to win the Women’s (14+) title, while Canfield edged out Jordan Jarvis for the Girls (9-13) Championship.
