WyoTech at Daytona Bike Week 2010 – Sights and Sounds

Day 2 of our Daytona Bike Week 2010 coverage. After listening to a couple of our WyoTech master technicians give a brief lecture on Motorcycle Preventative Maintenance, we headed over to the Horsepower Shootout to check out any Leaderboard changes. The last day of qualification for the 20th Annual WyoTech Brute Horsepower Shootout got us geared up for the championships on Friday! One of our Unlimited Import entries (a 94 Kawasaki ZX11) actually hit over 528 horsepower today! You can check out the results of the Qualification rounds here (PDF file): news.wyotech.edu While we were at the Dyno complex on the WyoTech-Daytona campus, a student named Mark let us sneak a peek at one of the student projects: a fully customized WyoTech quad that was completely built by the students. The quad went for a spin and tested its burnout capabilities before jumping on the dyno machine for a horsepower test. In the afternoon, we cruised down to Destination Daytona and Main Street where the streets and sidewalks are wall-to-wall packed full of booths, biker enthusiasts and sweet-looking rides. Then we headed down to the Daytona International Speedway’s Flat Track to watch some of the AMA Grand National Championship races. Sammy Halbert was crowned the Pro Flat Track champion in a tight race that saw a lot of position changes. Make sure you catch our final podcast video where we’ll wrap-up the 20th Annual Brute Horsepower Shootout and give you an inside look at the work that goes into
