MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Expands, Heads To Daytona

IRVINE, Calif. — After a successful debut season of the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship, the series will expand to a six-round series for the 2022 season.

The MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship will kick off during Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Fla., with the Baggers taking to the High Banks of Daytona Int’l Speedway for the first time, March 10-12, in conjunction with the Daytona 200.

From there, the series will head to Georgia’s Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta April 22-24, the site of last year’s thrilling opening round won by Indian Motorcycles Tyler O’Hara. The championship will then revisit Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. on June 3-5.

WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is where Kyle Wyman wrapped up the 2021 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship for Harley-Davidson, and the iconic track in Monterey, Calif., will play host to round four July 8-10.

The final two rounds will take place at tracks that are new to the King Of The Baggers – Brainerd Int’l Raceway in Brainerd, Minn., July 29-31, and New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, N. J., Sept. 9-11.

The three-round 2021 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Series generated more than 19 million impressions and an engagement of 1.2 million on social media with the races delivering over 1.1 million views and 43,000 total hours of viewing time on YouTube.

“The popularity of last year’s three-round King Of The Baggers Series was such that it left our fans, teams, sponsors, and racers wanting more,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “So, we are giving them what they want – a six-race championship held at the three tracks that the Baggers competed on last year with an additional three rounds, including our first visit to Daytona International Speedway, added to the series. We know the 2022 season, which will be MotoAmerica’s eighth as the home to the AMA Superbike Championship, will be as exciting as ever and the expanded King Of The Baggers Championship will be a huge part of that.”
