Daytona 200: Herrin Breaks Lap Record During First Qualifying Session (Second Update)

Former AMA Superbike Champion Josh Herrin topped the 79-rider field and unofficially broke the Daytona 200 lap record during the first of three qualifying sessions Friday at Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Riding his Bellissi Moto/Speed Demon Yamaha YZF-R6, former Daytona 200 winner Herrin ran the 3.51-mile infield road course in 1:48.331, eclipsing Valentin Debise’s 2018 Daytona 200 lap record of 1:48.638.

The new lap record remains unofficial until verified by ASRA, the sanctioning body of the Daytona 200.

A second qualifying session is scheduled at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time, and the third and final qualifying session is slated for 4:35 p.m.

The 79th Daytona 200 starts at 11:00 a.m. local time on Saturday, March 14. It can be watched via live streaming on NBC Sports Gold.

Update: During post-qualifying technical inspection, Herrin’s Yamaha was found to be two pounds under the minimum weight limit of 355 pounds, and as a result, Herrin was docked six positions in the Qualifying One order but his lap record will stand, according to ASRA Referee Phil Sberna.
