The 2015 AMA Supermoto National Championship Series Schedule was released Monday. The AMA Supermoto calendar features eight rounds, though no points will be awarded at the event held during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Two new tracks also join the championship for 2015 – New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H., and Muscle Man Honda Circuit in Tucson, Ariz.
“We’re excited to see the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series continue to grow for 2015,” said AMA Director of Racing Bill Cumbow. “This series provides a showcase for America’s top Supermoto talent, and the teams and sponsors that support the sport. It also gives the grassroots amateur community opportunities to compete on the country’s best tracks so they can hone their skills and become the pros of tomorrow.”
Loudon brings the Supermoto series to the East Coast, allowing the championship to reach nearly every region in the states. The other new track is the Man Honda Circuit, which will host the season finale.
The Man Honda Circuit features “large metal jumps and a paved motocross section. The race is expected to draw the best Supermoto racers from around the world.”

Supermoto combines exciting elements of motocross, dirt track and road racing into one dynamic discipline. It features jumps, high-speed straights and both dirt and asphalt surfaces. Track variations and venues can vary considerably. Supermoto events have taken place at purpose-built facilities, in sports stadiums, on casino properties and on closed-course cityscape street layouts.
The discipline originated in the United States in the late 1970s and was initially popularized by the ABC Wide World of Sports “Superbikers” show that featured the best dirt trackers, motocrossers and road racers of the time.
