Daytona 200 Fan Favorite Wins Big

As a regular pole-sitter and local fan favorite, Geoff May scored big this weekend in 5, let’s repeat that…..5 at the 35th Annual CCS Race of Champions ASRA and CCSRA sanctioned events at Daytona International Speedway.  Geoff’s warmup race was the Expert GTO on a super fast ZX10R 1,000 CC Kawasaki where he finished 10th. The Biketoberfest weekend packed with motorcycles of all kinds included exciting sprint racing on the massive high banks and hairpin turns of the world’s most famous speedway.

Daytona 200 2018

Out of Sugar Hill, Georgia Geoff May is making a major move in the final stages of 2018 and setting his sites on 2019 with an intense focus and a stronger team than in the past. Geoff has shown up at tracks with no sponsors and just getting support from family, friends, and fans and was in contention actually winning the pole position. His quiver this weekend included;

Kawasaki ZX10R 1000cc   Yamaha R6 600cc      BMW S1000RR 1000cc

The BMW is a recent addition, he won this weekend’s races on all three brands! Amazing. What will be his go-to superbike in the future? If you are scoring the following fills out his table;

Saturday 
Race 3  P-10 Expert GTO                 Z10R 1000cc Kawasaki
Race 6  P-1  Expert Supersport Unlimited Z10R 1000cc Kawasaki Avg Lap 103.48
Sunday
Race 5  P-2  Expert Superstock           S1000RR 1000cc BMW
Race 7  P-1  Expert ASRA Sportbike       R6 600cc Yamaha      Avg Lap 104.88

Race 16 P-1  Exper Superbike Unlimited   ZX10R 1000cc         Avg Lap 107.68

That is a lot of racing folks and to jump in and out of different bikes, setups, power, and speeds is a testimonial to these racers skill, endurance, equipment, and support network.

One of the great things about Geoff, he is fan friendly, especially during the Fanzone pit time at the UNOH FanZone. Walk out to pit lane and chat with the racers and teams, get autographs, photographs, selfies, and swag.  Family friendly too.

This weekend he had his work cut out battling Stefano Mesa of Boca Raton, Florida in the big bike class finishing 1-2 in a few and winning 4 of 6 races. Look for big things at next year’s Daytona 200 in March 2019. Said Geoff, in the understatement of the year, “It was a good weekend. Can’t wait for March”.
