Maxxis Spec Tire at Daytona Dirt

WKA officials are pleased to announce that all 4-cycle classes will run a Maxxis-only spec tire at this year’s Daytona Dirt World Championships, December 27-29 at the Daytona International Speedway Flat Track.

The only classes that will not run a Maxxis spec tire are any 2-cycle classes that are offered. Those classes will run open tire.

WKA officials are delighted to work with Maxxis for the second consecutive Daytona Dirt show and greatly appreciate the support from Goldspeed USA.
