One major hub of activity throughout Daytona Bike Week will be Victory Custom Row, the stretch of road in the Daytona International Speedway parking lot that features the Victory Demo Ride transporter and several vendors offering Victory-related products and services.
Victory Custom Row, anchored by the Victory Demo Rides, is an extension of the demo truck’s traditional spot in the Speedway parking lot: Outside the track’s Turn 4, where Richard Petty Boulevard intersects Midway Avenue.
From 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, riders will be able to experience demo rides and shop for Victory apparel and accessories just outside the fabled racetrack. Among the participants in Victory Custom Row will be:

Victory Police Motorcycles
More and more law enforcement agencies around the world are putting their motor patrols on Victory Police Motorcycles (VPM). The VPM team will have a variety of bikes on display at Victory Custom Row, and you’ll see incredible riding demonstrations that show the maneuverability, power, braking, durability and versatility of Victory motorcycles equipped for law enforcement use.
You’ll find details about Victory Bike Week activities at the Victory at Daytona Page. The page includes a link to registration for the March 15 Victory Ride and Victory Reception. The ride and reception are exclusively for Victory riders, who are asked to register online in advance.
Look for Victory Police Motorcycles – like these that were recently acquired by the Victoria, B.C., Canada, Police Department – on display and featured in riding demonstrations at Victory Custom Row.
