The eight round of the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross has arrived and it brings one of the most exciting rounds of every season — Daytona. Daytona International Speedway hosts one of the most intense rounds of the Supercross season, as the track is typically twice as long as the normal Supercross track with some moto-inspired rhythm sections and fast straight-aways. In the championship, Eli Tomac still reigns supreme in the points lead in the 450s.
The rider leaving Daytona will have a distinct advantage as the series nears the halfway point. The points leader after this race has won the title 78 percent of the time, according to Supercross statistician Clinton Fowler from Three Laps Down. Since 1990, the leader after Daytona has 88 percent of the championship wins. The most recent exception belongs to Ken Roczen in 2021 when he was a mere two points ahead of the eventual champion Webb.
