Dunlop Hits 30 at Daytona

Buffalo, NY: The 77th running of the fabled Daytona 200 produced a familiar face atop the final podium: Danny Eslick dominated the race on his TOBC Racing Yamaha R6 to take his fourth Daytona 200 victory.

Eslick’s victory marked the 30th time a Dunlop rider has won the Daytona 200. Daytona has an open-class tire rule—riders can run whatever brand tire they prefer—and Dunlop has been the overwhelming choice at Daytona for many decades. Eslick’s tires were made in America at Dunlop’s Buffalo plant, and are available to club and pro riders through
