V-Twin Baggers To Be MotoGP Support Race During Grand Prix of The Americas!

MotoGP and MotoAmerica have announced the thrilling inclusion of the Mission King of The Baggers Championship in this year’s Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas, scheduled from April 12th to 14th.

For the first time ever, the Circuit of The Americas will host the powerful V-twin machines amidst the MotoGP™ extravaganza, featuring two Baggers races within the series’ 18-race season.

The action-packed weekend will kick off with two points-paying races on Saturday. But that’s not all – Friday afternoon will witness a gripping three-lap Mission Challenge, showcasing the six fastest qualifiers vying for victory and a chance to claim the US$5000 prize.

Wayne Rainey, President of MotoAmerica, expressed his excitement about this groundbreaking opportunity, stating, “This is a great opportunity for MotoAmerica and our King Of The Baggers series. Having our teams and riders compete at a MotoGP event is ground-breaking and I know the MotoGP fans are going to be surprised and excited about what they see at COTA.”

Rainey extended his gratitude to MotoGP for their collaboration, as well as to sponsors Mission Foods and Parts Unlimited, and the manufacturers involved. He eagerly anticipates the reactions of the MotoGP paddock and fans to witness the Baggers in full throttle.

It will be quite a spectacle to watch the big, heavy V-Twin machines racing on the same weekend and on the same track as the ultra-advanced MotoGP race machines.

You can catch the Mission King of The Baggers Presented By Drag Specialties races live on MotoGP™’s YouTube Channel, MotoAmerica Live+, MAVTV, and the MotoAmerica YouTube channels.
