Daytona Beach Bike Week History
Bike Week started way back in 1937 as a race that was called The Daytona 200. After running annually for 5 years, the race officially took a 5 year break from 1942 to 1947, as World War 2 got in the way. During that time, however, there was an unofficial race held in its place, this was called Bike Week.
After the unofficial 5 year run of Bike Week, the official race picked up where it left off. Now promoted by NASCAR co-founder Bill France, the event gained popularity and went on to become the event that we all know and love today, as the Daytona Beach Bike Week. The event is still promoted by France's family business, International Speedway Corporation, as it is now known.
