2019 MotoAmerica Season (SBK, STK1, SSP, TWINS, JR CUP)
 
MOTOAMERICA 2019 SET TO BEGIN AT ROAD ATLANTA

MotoAmerica has announced that for the second straight year it will begin its series at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, with the Championship at Road Atlanta scheduled for April 5-7, 2019 as round one of the 2019 MotoAmerica Series.

Road Atlanta played host to the series opener this year for the first time and the timing proved to be popular.

“We liked starting our season at Road Atlanta,” MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey said. “We’ve been racing there since we started MotoAmerica in 2015 and it’s a place we enjoy going to. It’s a popular track with our riders and teams and it’s a great place to get our season rolling.”

“It’s been great having MotoAmerica on our schedule for the past four years and we’re looking forward to their return in April,” said Geoff Lee, President and General Manager of Road Atlanta. “Throughout the nearly 50 years that Road Atlanta has been in existence, the track has become synonymous with top-level motorcycle racing and producing some of the most exciting two-wheeled action there is, so we’re thrilled to continue that tradition with MotoAmerica.”]

Yoshimura Suzuki’s Toni Elias won both Motul Superbike races at Road Atlanta this year, the Spaniard beating Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz in race one and Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Cameron Beaubier in race two.

Not sure how this will affect the Laguna Seca MotoAmerica round. It might end up being a good thing if they get their marketing campaign right.

I've met him a few times, and had the chance to sit and banter with him (he's actually a lot quicker with the words when he's not in front of a camera lol). Super stoked to see him getting a good superbike ride! I hope he gets some wins!

It'd be rad to see Herrin on a factory bike, even the Suzuki. :D #MHFA

JD is a very talented rider. I love watching him race, and at VIR this year I got a "Beach #95" sticker which I put on my Zuma now. People always ask me if I bought my Zuma from him because of that :laugh

But he is so freakin hard to listen to in interviews. Not his fault and not much he can do about it, but I can't listen to him talk for more than like 2 minutes at a time.

When I was doing PR for MotoAmerica I was always dealing with the internal guy who shall remain nameless. We wanted to get something cool going on social media and at the time JD was probably the most active user, so he came up with the "Beach Break" idea and ran with it. I loved the idea but always mentioned it in the calls that it wasn't always easy to watch due to that. But he killed it anyway and it was a success.

One of the most watched videos on the MA facebook page is still one I approved and posted. Just a slow motion shot of him sliding his R6 into a turn at COTA. :D 15 seconds of video that has almost 1 million views since I posted it lol. That was the day I taught them what viral content was and what it wasn't. :devious
