CBS Sports to Broadcast AMA Pro Racing

2013 AMA SuperBike, Daytona SportBike, SuperSport, XR1200 Series TV Schedule

CBS Sports Network will broadcast AMA Pro Racing for the remainder of the 2013 season.

The agreement, which occurred between CBS Sports Network and AMA Pro Racing in conjunction with Chet Burks Productions, will give US fans flag-to-flag coverage of National Guard SuperBike and GoPro Daytona SportBike classes through 2014.

Coverage begins Saturday, June 1, with a 30-minute preview show at 2:30 p.m. EDT ahead of the Subway SuperBike Doubleheader at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. This race, and a few others, will be live, something that was not offered in the past on other channels.

AMA Pro Racing reports that the initial telecasts will be presented in afternoon weekend time slots, with several events airing live.  In addition, encore broadcasts and an all-new 30-minute weekend preview show will air on CBS Sports Network. These preview shows will provide qualifying information, history of the sport, and the latest paddock news as well as interviews with riders.

Dan Weinberg (Senior Vice President, Programming, CBS Sports Network) says: “We’re excited to add AMA Pro to our CBS Sports Spectacular lineup. GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing is a high octane, action-packed sport featuring some of the world’s best motorcycle racers and is a great addition to our live programming this summer.”

David Atlas (Managing Board Member of AMA Pro Racing) says: “We are incredibly proud of this television package and excited to begin our new relationship with CBS Sports Network.

“Through the live action and in-depth features, we will present fans with the most intense immersion into our unique and exciting racing that the sport has ever seen.”

Chet Burks (President, Chet Burks Productions) says: “This agreement is the result of a tremendous amount of time and commitment from AMA Pro and is a significant step for motorcycle racing in America. We look forward to producing an exciting television experience for CBS Sports Network viewers.”

CBS Sports Network is available across the country through local cable, video and telco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 613 and Dish Network Channel 158. For more information, and to access the CBS Sports Network channel finder, go to
