Don Emde, Inc. has in stock the updated second edition of The Daytona 200.  The History of America's Premier Motorcycle  Race, by Don Emde.

The sold-out first edition, printed in 1991, is  included in its entirety, along with the addition of  the next 13 years of Daytona 200 racing action.  This two-part book provides an in-depth history of the race that goes beyond just the pure facts and figures. In Part One, the reader goes on a decade-by-decade trip through time, starting back before the first running of the Daytona 200 in 1937 up to 2003. Author Don Emde, himself a former Daytona 200 winner, shows you how the race has evolved from the days of racing on the sands of Daytona Beach to the banks of Daytona International Speedway. Part Two contains the most complete statistics section ever on the Daytona 200. This comprehensive section lists every rider who has ever competed in the race, top 20 finishes for each year, fastest qualifying times and much, much more! 

The Daytona 200. The History of America’s Premier Motorcycle Race is a must-read for any motorcycle racing enthusiast!

This historic 382 page hardcover book contains over 450 photographs and illustrations, including a color section.

NOTE: ORDERS TO THE USA ONLY. 


TWO BONUS SIGNED PRINTS!


Every order for a Daytona 200 book now also includes two free photo prints. One is a photo print of Don Emde and his father Floyd Emde, the only father and son to have both won the Daytona 200. Floyd passed away in 1994, so his signature is printed from a scan of his actual autograph. Don will personalize to the buyer and sign each print at the time of the order. The second print shows Don in action at Daytona in 1972. He is seen here chasing Dave Smith (20), the winner of the 100-mile 250cc race and 3rd place finisher in the 1972 Daytona 200. Following Don is Kenny Roberts (60) at his first ever Daytona  Bike Week as an Expert rider. He finished 2nd that year in the 250cc race, but did not finish the 200-mile race. In the years to follow he would win the 200 three times.
