Richie Escalante was quickest during MotoAmerica Daytona 200 free practice Thursday morning at Daytona International Speedway.

Riding his Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R750, the Mexican rider lapped the 3.51-mile infield road course in 1:48.968 to lead the field of 68 riders.

Josh Herrin, the winner of the 2023 Daytona 200, was second-best with a 1:49.421 on his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Panigale V2.

Escalante’s teammate and two-time Daytona 200 winner Brandon Paasch was third with a 1:49.575.

Tyler Scott, the 2023 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship runner-up and another Escalante teammate, was fourth at 1:49.697.

Bobby Fong rounded out the top five with a 1:49.833 on his Wrench Motorcycles Suzuki GSX-R750.

PJ Jacobsen crashed his new Rahal Ducati Moto Panigale V2 during the session but escaped injury.

The 68-rider Daytona 200 field was split into two separate practice groups, A and B, based on “demonstrated experience,” according to MotoAmerica Operations Director Niccole Cox.
