Daytona Beach, FL - March 14, 2014 – Provisional polesitter for the 73rd running of the Daytona 200, Garrett Gerloff, will start on the front row for tomorrow’s race. The rider of the #8 Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6 will start in second position for the 57-lap event.
Joining Garrett for the Daytona 200 is teammate JD Beach, who was seventh-fastest on the day and will be looking to get a good start from the third row of the grid in Sunday’s race.
Commenting on his qualifying effort, Garrett said, “Man, I wanted that (Rolex) watch! I felt pretty good, and I don’t think that’s the fastest I can go around here. It’s a long race with a couple of pitstops along the way. My team has a lot of experience with the quick-change equipment that we use here at Daytona, so we’re definitely in good shape for the 200. We’ll be ready.”
The Daytona 200 is set to begin tomorrow, Saturday, March 15, at 1:00 PM EST. You can watch the entire race live online at FansChoice.tv.
