Less than a week before the final pre-entry deadline of February 25th, AMA Pro Racing's official entry list for the 2013 Daytona 200 included 26 riders--as of 10:45 a.m. Pacific Standard Time today. Post entries are not being accepted by AMA Pro Racing.
Among those listed were 2011 Daytona 200 winner Jason DiSalvo on the #40 Triumph 675R fielded by Latus Motors Racing and 2012 Daytona 200 winner Joey Pascarella on the #52 Triumph 675R entered by Riders Discount Racing Triumph.
Elena Myers was listed as riding the #21 Triumph 675R entered by Sturgess Cycle Triumph, as a teammate to Kenny Riedmann on the #42 Triumph 675R.
(This just in: As of 10:55 a.m. PST, the Daytona 200 entry list posted by AMA Pro Racing had dropped from 26 to 23, with entries for Jason DiSalvo, Elena Myers and Kenny Riedmann disappearing for unexplained reasons.)
