Aprilia wins & dominates Daytona 300
The number 6 Aprilia USA 2 team of Italian riders Federico Aliverti and Giancarlo De Matteis scored a dramatic victory in Sunday's Daytona 300, a famous 300 mile endurance race. Aliverti put the team's Aprilia Tuono 1000R into the lead for good with just eight laps remaining in the 106-lap race around the 2,95 mile Daytona International Speedway and pulled clear to a 20.2 sec victory over the No. 18 Roadracingworld.com Suzuki SV1000S of Chris Ulrich and Lee Acree. In 3rd place is the Tuono of JC Racing/R&R Racing (riders Dave Estok/Mike Luke). Aprilia USA team 1 (riders Ty Howard/Troy Green) finished in 8th place. 3 Aprilia teams in the top 10 and 2 on the podium. I'd say Aprilia had a pretty succesful weekend!
