Unlike other stateside racing sports that get loads of broadcast time, motorcycle racing – especially AMA Pro Road Racing – doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
AMA Pro Road Racing fans only have a few live races a year, including the Daytona 200, but most have to rely on DVR, TiVo or online streaming to catch any of the action. At least the races are viewable, but unlike other stateside racing (NASCAR…), there are limited shows dedicated to the personal side of the paddocks in AMA Pro Road Racing.
One is Superbike Family, which airs on SPEED TV and follows the racing-life of Larry Pegram (Foremost Insurance Yamaha).
And beginning March 7, another one will arrive – “Following Fillmore.” HMC KTM’s Chris Fillmore has got together with Director Limore Shur to create “Following Fillmore,” a web series that follows the Michigan native both on and off the track as he competes in the AMA SuperBike Championship.
The 25-year old began professionally racing in 2003 in the inagural AMA SuperMoto series. Due to his strong finishes, Fillmore got a ride with factory Red Bull KTM at the age of 16, the youngest racer in the series. Fillmore continued to race in AMA, winning the 2011 AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series, and delivering various podiums aboard the KTM RC8 in the SuperBike Championship.
Attached above is the official trailer of “Following Fillmore,” which will premier March 7 on Chris Fillmore’s YouTube Channel.
