2015 Daytona 200 Danny Eslick makes it two Daytona 200 wins in a row.
News from Cycleworld:

Because International Speedway Corporation and MotoAmerica could not come to an agreement on joint production of a 2015 Daytona 200, ISC brought in ASRA (American Sportbike Racing Association), whose address is the same as that of WERA.
