That’s the affiliate American motorcycle road racing series of the KRAVE Group, comprising Terry Karges, Rainey, Chuck Aksland, and Richard Varner, which purchased the commercial rights to US road racing from the AMA this past September. In actuality, the 53-year-old Californian brings a familiar face, legendary determination, and international support to a national superbike style motorcycle championship that has struggled for years under mixed leadership.

The first race (of a nine race season) of this inaugural MotoAmerica racing series is just a few short weeks away - Friday through Sunday, April 10-12, 2015 - and will begin paired with the European run MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas event at Circuit Of The Americas outside of Austin, Texas.

The Thermal Club provided a perfect backdrop to the unique promise MotoAmerica represents ... it is time for the United States to re-establish itself as an environment for racer and competition development.
