Daytona 200 : Bostrom vainqueur !
Daytona 200 : Bostrom vainqueur !

Ben Bostrom l’emporte devant son coéquipier Josh Herrin, assurant ainsi le doublé pour Yamaha dans la première édition de nuit des 200 Miles de Daytona.
Après une série d’intervention des pace cars assez étrange (type NASCAR) les deux coéquipiers du Team Graves Yamaha l’emportaient finalement, après que Josh Hayes soit tombé en fin de course alors qu’il pouvait encore prétendre à la victoire.
 
A la mi-course, Josh Hayes (Yamaha) précédait Ben Bostrom (Yamaha), Martin Cardenas (Suzuki), Josh Herrin (Yamaha), Jason DiSalvo (Suzuki) et Jake Zemke (Honda). La première Kawasaki était 9ème (Jamie Hacking), l’Aprilia de Chad Davies 10ème et la Buell de Michael Barnes 11ème.
 
La course était neutralisée … quand l’éclairage s’est soudain éteint dans la chicane ! Peu après une chute de Tommy Aquino (pilote OK) provoquait la présentation du drapeau rouge.
 
Ensuite, un nouvel accident pour Kris Turner à 15 tours de la fin entrainait un nouveau pace car. Bostrom rentrait ravitailler, puis revenait en piste et était autorisé à se positionner juste derrière le pace car. La course repartait. La lutte pour la victoire opposait alors Ben Bostrom, Josh Hayes et Josh Herrin pour Yamaha, Jason DiSalvo et sa M4 Suzuki, Jamie Hacking pour Attack Kawasaki, et Chaz Davies sur KWS Aprilia.
 
Hayes chutait, puis le drapeau à damier était présenté à l’issue du 55ème des 57 tours prévus, sans que la raison de cette réduction ne soit très évidente.
