Gearing up for the high banks this March, we are excited to announce that we have signed pro racer Michael Barnes to ride in the Daytona 200 with Squid Hunter Racing!
Team owner, Peter Strack sees the drive and ambition that Barnes will bring to the Squid Hunter team. We’ve been spending a lot of time, money and energy to upgrade our team and logistics to improve our strategy.
We are very excited to see what Barnes can do with the Yamaha R6 we have been preparing for him and we are hoping for another spot on top of the podium. The entire Squid Hunter team is eagerly anticipating how Barnes can make this happen.
Barnes shared, “Between Squid Hunter Racing’s technical background, both of our crews, and my many years of experience, we are confident that we will have a strong effort.” After our last victory we experienced from signing Italian rider, Simone Corsi, we are very excited to see how Barnes will do. We have extremely high hopes that Barnes can bring the Squid Hunter team to victory once again.
Barnes, from South Florida has successfully ridden at the Daytona International Speedway for more than three decades. After coming out of retirement due to suffering serious injuries from a wreck back in 2014, Barnes placed first in the 75th Daytona 200. He couldn’t stand being on the sidelines any longer and it seriously paid off for him. He had no idea he would have such a great outcome entering the race and is anticipating a similar one with the Squid Hunter team.
We can’t wait to see what the outcome will be this time around and are looking forward to another great victory for Squid Hunter Racing!

This past weekend, we set out for Virginia to participate in Championship Cup Series motorcycle racing. It was very challenging and the team was put to the test.
The Squid Hunter team had a busy, winning race weekend at the Championship Cup Series season opener in Daytona. This race coincided with the 77th annual Daytona 200 and Daytona Bike Week, giving us the chance to convene with teams that eat, sleep, breathe, and eat motorcycle racing.
