WOOD DALE, IL -- Sega Amusements reports that its popular new Daytona Championship USA standard cabinet version is now in production, rolling out of the factory and into arcade locations.

According to Sega, the standard-cabinet model is not as tall and has a smaller footprint, so it can fit into a wider range of locations. It delivers the same gameplay as the deluxe-cabinet version, which won a Brass Ring award from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions last year. It also retains the iconic Hornet car-themed marquee, wrapped in racing-sponsored graphics highlighted by bright, colorful LED edge lighting.

"We had many customers asking us for an inexpensive compact cabinet for their locations," said Sega sales manager Vince Moreno, "so we answered their wishes with this spectacular new model.  In developing this game, we maintained all the winning aspects that make Daytona Championship USA one of the top driving games on location." It's also attractively priced, he observed.

The global demand for Daytona Championship USA has been strong, thanks to its excellent return on investment, Moreno added. Its new "instant re-match" puts players back into the race, encouraging  repeat play.  The all-new Tournament Mode attracts new players to locations and simplifies tournament setup for operators.  And the Sega-IQ Intelligent Service Menus' feature provides prompts and troubleshooting advice to an onsite technician.

All the play action unfolds at 60 frames per second on a 42" high-definition LED  screen, on which are presented the game's  "arcade-perfect" handling, artificial intelligence and "catch up" features which appeal to casual and hard-core gamers alike. The added four-speed gear shifter, new cars, six challenging tracks and game modes enhance the fun and excitement for players old and new.

"The Daytona standard game is designed to have a smaller footprint, and to fit the budgets of more customers so more locations can have the Daytona brand,"  Moreno summed up.

Information on the new Daytona Championship model may be had by calling Sega at (847) 364-9787, emailing to, or contacting local authorized Sega distributors.
