The Suzuki GSX-R600 that Danny Eslick raced to victory in the 74th running of the Daytona 200 this past March has been acquired by the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and is now on display as part of the museum’s world-renowned motorcycle collection.

Resplendent in brilliant-white TOBC Racing livery and Eslick’s #69 competition number, the winning machine was acquired by the museum from team owner Michelle Lindsay.

“TOBC Racing is proud and incredibly honored that the 2015 Daytona-200-winning bike piloted by two-time and defending race champion Danny Eslick has found a new home in the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum,” Lindsay said. “This was such an emotional victory for our whole team. It was the first time we raced together since the passing of our previous owner, Jon Couch.

“When Barber agreed to display our bike in their museum, I was overjoyed. To have something that we did together in TOBC racing colors with our crest on it memorialized like this and displayed for thousands of people to see is nothing short of incredible.”

Brian Slark, technical director for the museum commented, “We’re delighted to have this iconic machine as part of the Barber collection. The bike is now in its rightful place among our growing collection of historically relevant, Daytona-winning motorcycles.”

Scott Harwell, team manager for TOBC racing, added, “Everyone on the team put their heart and soul into making that race happen. I’m so pleased that we now have the opportunity to take our friends and family to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum to see the bike and to relive the great memories of the 74th Daytona 200 and what we accomplished as a team that weekend.”

Eslick’s winning racer joins the museum’s collection of more than 1,400 pristine motorcycles and automobiles, and it will be displayed alongside the racebikes of world-renowned motorcycle racers like Jarno Saarinen, Yvon DuHamel, Colin Edwards, and many more.

TOBC Racing fields Taylor Knapp on a Yamaha YZF-R1 in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 class. Knapp is currently second overall in championship points.
