AMA Pro Racing and Sunoco Fuels Announce 2013 Daytona 200 VIP Sweepstakes

In a great battle of the 'black and blue' brigade during the Suzuki Superbike Doubleheader weekend at Road America in June 2004, four riders go at it for the final spot on the podium, early in the going of the Lockhart-Phillips USA Formula Xtreme final as they head into turn 14.  Leaders (and eventual 1st and 2nd placers) Miguel Duhamel and Jake Zemke are already well ahead of this pack during the 10 lap event on their Honda CBR600RR machines, leaving this pack to go at it for the 3rd place spot on the podium.

Alex Gobert on the #23 American Honda/Erion Racing/Parts Unlimited-sponsored CBR600RR leads Doug Chandler on the #10 HMC/Ducati Milwaukee-sponsored 749R, Steve Crevier on the #714 DXS Diablo Suzuki/Joe Rocket/KBC-sponsored GSX-R600 and Vincent Haskovec on the #3 Valvoline Emgo Suzuki/Michelin/Arai-backed GSX-R600.  Gobert would hold the point to the end to garner that final spot on the box, just .241 seconds ahead of former 3-Time AMA Superbike Champ Chandler, with former '98 AMA 600 Supersport Champ Crevier fading to 3.165 seconds back, with Haskovec coming home in the 6th spot, a little over 7 seconds behind Crevier.

AMA Pro Racing and spec-fuel sponsor Sunoco Fuels announced a very nice sweepstakes for the 2012 AMA Pro Road Racing and AMA Pro Flat Track seasons that will see one lucky winner wave the checkered flag at the completion of the 2013 Daytona 200 event.

First Prize Winners of the Sunoco VIP Experience sweepstakes will be awarded the highly-coveted, Sunoco-branded checkered flags signed by each event weekend's race winners.

The Grand Prize Winner of the Sunoco VIP Experience will be awarded the opportunity to wave the checkered flag for the 2013 running of the historic DAYTONA® 200 as part of an all-expense paid trip to Daytona Beach, Fla.; a luxury package valued at well over $3,000.

There will be 12 entry periods for AMA Pro Road Racing events and 14 entry periods for AMA Pro Flat Track events over the course of the 2012 season. The entry period for each event begins 10 days prior to on-track action and ends four days following the waving of each checkered flag, with random drawings for First Prize Winners performed the day after the closing of each entry period.

The 26 First Place Winners will be presented with a Sunoco-branded checkered flag autographed by the race winner(s) of the event that they registered for; this is a true fan's dream opportunity to capture a rare piece of American motorcycle road racing history.

Fans are asked to participate in each and every round of the Sunoco VIP Experience sweepstakes. While entries are only permitted once per round per person, an entry into each round guarantees a better chance of winning the Grand Prize and the namesake of the sweepstakes - the Sunoco VIP Experience.
