IRVINE, Calif. – Mission Foods will continue as the title sponsor of MotoAmerica’s Mission King Of The Baggers Series for the next three years, beginning with the upcoming seven-round season.
With a year of title sponsorship under its belt from the inaugural three-round Mission King Of The Baggers Series in this year, Mission returns as the naming rights holder of the championship that has grown to seven rounds for the upcoming season.
The series will kick off with two races in the highly anticipated season opener on the high banks of Daytona Int’l Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., March 10-12.
“I think it’s great that Mission Foods is on board with us again as a sponsorship partner for 2022 and beyond,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “We had a successful season with the Mission King Of The Baggers Series last year and Mission proved to be a wonderful partner for us. We’ve added four races to the King Of The Baggers schedule for the coming season and it will all kick off during Bike Week at Daytona International Speedway.
“We can’t think of a better place to start the series than Daytona and we look forward to another awesome series with Mission as our title sponsor for King Of The Baggers.”
With Daytona set to start the season with the opening two races, the other five rounds will be held at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on April 22-24, Road America on June 3-5, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on July 8-10, Brainerd Int’l Raceway on July 29-31 and New Jersey Motorsports Park on Sept. 9-11.
“We are very excited to extend our partnership with MotoAmerica for another three years, 2022 to 2024, and become the official entitlement sponsor of the King of the Baggers Series under the name Mission King Of The Baggers,“ said Juan Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer, Mission Foods. “As a leading global food brand, it is a great opportunity to not only interact with our consumers in a fun and exciting environment but also support the motorcycle sport community. I strongly believe that our partnership will create unforgettable moments for all race fans.”
Last year’s King Of The Baggers Championship came down to a fierce battle between Harley-Davidson’s Kyle Wyman and Indian’s Tyler O’Hara, with Wyman winning the final round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca to take home the title.
Those two will again spearhead the efforts of the Harley-Davidson and Indian factories on their H-D Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide and Mission Foods S&S Cycle Indian Challenger, respectively.
Each of the seven rounds of the series will feature a MotoAmerica purse of $10,000.
Additionally, a Mission King Of The Baggers Challenge sprint race will be held at the six events and feature a winner-take-all $5,000 purse. The Challenge will feature the fastest top six Mission King Of The Baggers racers from qualifying.
The Mission King Of The Baggers races will again air on FOX Sports next season.
