AMA Pro Road Racing’s First Lady
In 2012, Elena Myers became the first woman to win a professional motorsports event of any kind at the fabled Daytona International Speedway. In March 2013, Myers added to her impressive list of accomplishments by finishing 9th in the Daytona 200, becoming the highest-placing female ever in the history of the legendary road race.
Myers has been a competitive road racer since the tender age of 11, when she became the country’s youngest female 80cc road racing champion. She went on to earn her first national-level race win at 14 and in 2010 became the first woman to win an AMA Pro Road Racing sprint race, taking home the SuperSport checkers at Infineon. She followed that up with her impressive AMA Pro SuperSport win at Daytona in 2012.
Myers joins Latus Motors Racing/Riedmann Racing teammates Jason DiSalvo and Kenny Riedmann on matching Castrol Triumph Daytona 675Rs. Although the competition in the AMA Pro Racing Daytona Sportbike class is fierce, to Elena this is just another challenge to embrace and conquer.
