DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 5, 2022) – Fall Cycle Scene Presented By Monster Energy, Daytona International Speedway’s 30th annual Biketoberfest® event, WILL return as planned Oct. 13-16, as recovery efforts from Hurricane Ian will not keep the track and community from welcoming fans, competitors and enthusiasts alike.
The World Center of Racing dealt with sustained winds and heavy rains as Hurricane Ian moved across the Florida peninsula, but track staffers have been working around the clock to make sure the venue is ready to go. The biker’s paradise will be open Thursday through Sunday (Oct. 13-16) for four days of exciting activities for motorcycle enthusiasts – both on the iconic 3.51-mile Daytona Road Course as well as in the popular Motorcycle Marketplace.
During Fall Cycle Scene Presented By Monster Energy, guests can watch the two-wheel, on-track action all weekend long plus enjoy live entertainment. See the Championship Cup Series (CCS) on the road course with the 39th Annual Race of Champions AMA Road Race as well as the American Sportbike Racing Association (ASRA), and the Bagger Racing League.
When not watching the action on the track, fans are encouraged to check out Motorcycle Marketplace, located in the Midway outside the frontstretch (parallel with International Speedway Blvd), which will be brimming with activity. The Motorcycle Marketplace provides a one-stop shopping destination with everything from the nation’s top motorcycle parts to Hot Leathers and Harley Davidson fashion, apparel, accessories, aftermarket vendors, plus many more displays and activations. Admission is FREE to Motorcycle Marketplace.
Infield RV camping for Fall Cycle Scene is available for purchase, starting at $140 (which includes the RV site, one 4-day Infield Admission and a Tow Vehicle pass). Additional infield admissions for the four-day weekend are just $60. Bike trailer parking in a secured area outside the infield beginning on Thursday, Oct. 13, is also available on for $25.
Single day infield admissions are also offered (Thursday $20, Friday $25, Saturday, $25 and Sunday $25). Infield admissions allow fans to see the riders on the 31-degree of banking at Daytona International Speedway for four days of thrilling action from the infield, plus get access to the UNOH Fanzone and the garage area.

About Daytona International Speedway
Daytona International Speedway is a state-of-the-art motorsports facility and was awarded the SportsBusiness Journal’s prestigious Sports Business Award for Sports Facility of the Year in 2016. Daytona International Speedway is the home of The Great American Race – the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening NASCAR Cup Series event garners most of the attention – as well as the largest audience in motorsports – the approximately 500-acre motorsports complex, also known as the World Center of Racing, boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe. In addition to at least nine major event weekends, the Speedway grounds are also used extensively for events that include concerts, civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training. The iconic venue was the site of a host of motorsports events early in 2022, beginning with AHRMA Classic Motofest and the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA in January, and the 64th DAYTONA 500, which debuted the first points race for NASCAR’s ‘Next Gen’ car as part of Speedweeks Presented by AdventHealth, in February. The tradition-rich 81st Annual Bike Week At DAYTONA returned in March, featuring DAYTONA Supercross and the DAYTONA 200. May saw the “Welcome to Rockville” concert and the Heroes Honor Festival while during July 4th weekend, the track, in association with Torneos, hosted the inaugural Daytona Soccer Fest. The NASCAR Cup Series returned for the final race of the regular season with the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Aug. 27, as well as the Saturday, Aug. 26 250 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The 2023 DAYTONA is set for Feb. 19, during Speedweeks Presented By AdventHealth.
Founded in 1984, the Championship Cup Series (CCS) is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. During our long history, we have become the Leader in Sportsman Level motorcycle road racing offering unrivalled competition at nationwide venues. Our parent company is the American SportBike Racing Association LLC, owned and operated by Kevin Elliott.

The Series was created when Kevin Elliott established American Sportbike Racing Association LLC at the same time he acquired the Championship Cup Series. ASRA is modelled after the original North American Sport Bike Series (NASB) and its later counterpart FormulaUSA Championship Series. Originally exclusive to riders with Expert status, the ASRA Sprint Series opened up competition to Amateurs beginning with the 2011 race season.

More, from a press release issued by the Daytona Beach Area Visitors & Convention Bureau:
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – (Oct. 5, 2022) – Businesses that traditionally host guests are looking forward to the 30th Annual Biketoberfest® motorcycle rally scheduled for Oct. 13-16. Clean-up following the recent storm is well underway with many campgrounds, accommodations, restaurants, and event facilities preparing to host aspects of the four-day event schedule. With power and Internet restoration underway and water levels receding in many key venues, many local businesses are already up and running, with more coming online daily.
Changing Day by Day: “Our community has been greatly impacted by the storm, some areas more than others,” said Lori Campbell-Baker, Executive Director for the Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Area (CVB). “We are encouraged by the daily progress made by our local citizens and municipalities in the recovery. The destination has been working around the clock.”
Many local businesses are already up and running, with more coming online daily. The City of Daytona Beach’s Biketoberfest® Master Plan is fully activated, and most events scheduled for Biketoberfest® will take place as scheduled.
While the status of individual properties is changing rapidly as power and Internet are restored and clean-up continues, venues such as world-famous Main Street, Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach and Daytona International Speedway will be moving forward with planned events. Biketoberfest® visitors are asked to respectfully avoid areas that might not be fully recovered and to ride with extra care during their stay.
Where to Stay: Visitors with lodging reservations are encouraged to contact their property directly to confirm their reservation status. Many of the properties that area currently unable to host guests are proactively reaching out to fellow industry partners in order to accommodate event visitors. Visitors who haven’t yet secured a reservation are asked to visit Biketoberfest.org and DaytonaBeach.com for lodging information and event updates.
Positive Economic Impacts: Many local businesses and employees rely on the economic impact that is generated from Biketoberfest® and other tourism-related activities, explains Campbell Baker. “According to data from Mid-Florida Marketing & Research, visitors to Volusia County spent $5.5 billion in our local (non-accommodations) businesses last year alone. Our tourism industry generated more than 52,000 jobs and pumped $700 million worth of payroll into our residents’ households.”
“Despite the challenges from the recent storm, we are prepared and ready to host visitors during Biketoberfest®,” said Patrick Sullivan, General Manager of Rose Villa Southern Table & Bar in Ormond Beach. “All special events, including this year’s Biketoberfest®, are critical to the success of local businesses. The visitors from events like Biketoberfest® allow businesses such as our restaurant to be open year-round for the residents.”
Charitable Component: In addition, Charlene Greer and the team from Jeep Beach Inc., another highly-popular local event, are already hard at work supporting the community post-storm. “We’re donating food, clothing and other assistance to local residents and we’ll be organizing more activities to tap into our ever-generous Biketoberfest® visitors,” says Greer. “A full 100% of donations received will go directly to help our community, and we’re even paying any credit card processing fees, to ensure that donations are even more impactful.” For more information or to donate, visit the Hurricane Ian link on JeepBeach.com. “Members of the bike community are kindred spirits to the Jeep community, and we look forward to welcoming them back.”
