Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen says he’s putting ‘extra focus’ into this weekend’s 10th stop of Monster Energy Supercross, which will mark the 50th anniversary of the Daytona International Speedway round.

The German native, who shares the red-plate with Eli Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki) after capturing victory in Atlanta, is hoping to deliver a maiden victory at the unique event on what is a milestone weekend.

“We had to get out to the front and I really focused – obviously I want to win every weekend, but I knew I wasn’t stressing about anything, because seven points isn’t a lot,” Roczen said after closing the gap last weekend.

“At the same time, you don’t want that gap to get any bigger. I’m really looking forward to next weekend – I’ve never won Daytona, but I feel the 50th anniversary race will be good to me, so I’m putting a little extra focus into next weekend.”

The Team Honda HRC rider has three wins to his name this season, along with four podium results.
