The schedule features eight rounds, including all circuits that were on the 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing schedule except Daytona International Speedway (DIS).
“After having multiple discussions with Moto America/KRAVE regarding a sanction agreement for 2015 Daytona 200, we were unable to find common ground on a business model that would be beneficial for both parties. We wish MotoAmerica/KRAVE the best as they begin their inaugural season in 2015,” said Joie Chitwood III, President of DIS.
“Daytona International Speedway will continue to be the driving force behind Bike Week, hosting a wide range of activities for all ages including the Daytona Supercross, the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross and the AMA Pro Flat Track doubleheader, as well as demo rides, displays and vendors. We will continue to look for partners to assist in running the Daytona 200.”
MotoAmerica reports that two of its classes will be used as support races for MotoGP at Circuit of the Americas and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. MotoAmerica will also run with World Superbike at Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway
“The MotoAmerica Road Racing Series is shaping up nicely,” said Chuck Aksland, who is partners with Rainey in the KRAVES Group that manages MotoAmerica.
“The positive responses from race tracks and the road racing community have been great, and because of this support we were able to build a solid road racing series schedule for 2015. Our aim is to have a nine-race 2015 MotoAmerica Road Racing Championship. We are working on confirmation of an additional venue and hope to have this completed very soon.”
