Josh Herrin and Ducati win the Daytona 200 on the tires of their choice – Dunlop!
This year’s Daytona 200 marked the 81st anniversary of the event notorious for unparalleled racing action, and due to the prodigious array of talent, the 2023 race was no exception. The Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC backed rider, Josh Herrin, took pole and the crown on his Dunlop-supported Ducati Panigale V2.
0.07 seconds behind Herrin was fellow Dunlop racer and four-time AMA Pro Superbike Champion, Josh Hayes on his Squid Hunter Racing Yamaha YZF-R6.
Thanks to the MotoAmerica efforts, the Daytona 200 was re-invigorated this year, and key competitors of Dunlop such as Pirelli, Michelin, and Bridgestone all showed up with their best efforts to battle for a race win in one of the most demanding and prestigious events held annually. But with the brands competitiveness and dedication towards winning, it should not come as a surprise that Dunlop ended up triumphant. While we respect and support control tire programs, we look forward to the challenge of standing toe-to-toe to expose the true superiority of the Dunlop brand. In the end, Dunlop showed that no one can match our tech and performance.
The immeasurable passion to win is a pronounced value at Dunlop, but without the dedication towards technological innovation and top-tier testing, the brand would not be where it is today. We are fortunate enough to be the exclusive tire provider of the MotoAmerica Championship, and through our experience, we have gained invaluable racing expertise and engineering capabilities used to design, develop, and produce championship-worthy tires. The ability to provide this unmatched quality stems from the fact that we are the only tire manufacturer with design, development, testing, racing, and manufacturing located in the United States. We pride ourselves over this home-grown performance because Dunlop tires are designed by engineers in Buffalo, tested by experts in Huntsville, and built by dedicated workers right here in the United States of America.
