The highlight of the Friday's Daytona action was an incredible race for Maple Ridge, BC's Steve Crevier in the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200 race. The Motosport Plus/Dominion Lending/Motorhead-backed racer had very little practice on Thursday due to mechanical problems, leaving him 11th on the starting grid. Crevier however quickly moved through the field to fight amongst the top three motorcycles, briefly leading the race before finishing in 5th, just 0.37 seconds behind winner Tyler O'Hara.
