Brandon Paasch was honoured with a commemorative plaque on Triumph’s Avenue of Legends at its global HQ and Factory Visitor Experience, Hinckley, to celebrate his Daytona 200 win.
Brandon made Triumph history by taking an outstanding win on board the Street Triple 765 RS for the TOBC Triumph racing team. The race culminated in a thrilling victory as he drafted the competition out of the very last corner to win by just .007 seconds.The victory represented the first Daytona 200 win for the Street Triple 765, once again proving the performance and reliability credentials of Triumph’s class-leading sports performance middleweight, which, combined with Brandon’s outstanding skills, contributed to writing another chapter of Triumph’s iconic Daytona racing history. This milestone is now immortalised on Triumph’s Avenue of Legends, which can be walked by every visitor to the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience.
Brandon Paasch – 2022 Daytona 200 Winner: “I am super pumped to have won the Daytona 200 for a second time, back-to-back,” Brandon told Bikers Nod. “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.”
Triumph Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent commented: “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. 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.”
I first came across Brandon last year (2021) at Donington, where Bennetts was holding a Skills Day… not that he clearly needed to improve on anything really, being more happy at blasting round the previously prepared circuit on a Speed Triple and completing the odd wheelie for good measure. Away from the track and over lunch, I found Brandon to be the most modest of young men, clearly conscious of his extraordinary talent, and also clearly focused on his future career. We congratulate him on his Legend title.
