Brandon Paasch was honoured with a commemorative plaque on Triumph’s Avenue of Legends to celebrate his Daytona 200 win.
Paasch made Triumph history in March by taking an outstanding win at the Daytona 200 on the TOBC Triumph Racing’s Street Triple 765 RS. The dramatic race culminated in a thrilling victory as he drafted the competition out of the very last corner to win by just 0.007 seconds.
The very first Daytona 200 victory for the Street Triple 765, saw the 20-yeqar-old contribute to another chapter of Triumph’s iconic Daytona racing history with the milestone now immortalised on Triumph’s Avenue of Legends, which can be walked by every visitor to the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience at its global Hinckley HQ in the UK.
“I am super pumped to have won the Daytona 200 for a second time, back-to-back,” Paasch confirmed.
“It’s very special for me as it’s a very short list of legendary riders who have accomplished that. Now I am aiming to become the only rider to do it three times in a row!
“I am very thankful to Triumph for accepting me into their Avenue of Legends. I can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for me these past two years, and I hope to have a long lasting relationship with the Triumph brand.”
“The Avenue of Legends is a mark of respect to those inspirational people who have pushed the boundaries to help make Triumph the brand it is today, and we are delighted to welcome Brandon Paasch to that exclusive group,” Triumph Chief Product Officer, Steve Sargent added. “With his sensational win at the Daytona 200, the race after which the Triumph Daytona can trace its roots back to 1966, sealing a last corner victory by just 0.007 seconds truly earns him the ‘Legend’ title”
