Just ahead of the opening round of MotoAmerica – America’s new road-racing series spearheaded by three-time 500cc Champion Wayne Rainey – CBS Sports Network has penned a deal with the organization to air the opening-two races.

A season preview is set to air at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, April 15. There will be a second airing at 11:30 p.m. that evening, and a third at 11:30 p.m. Saturday, April 18.

Round 1 at Circuit of the Americas this weekend, which is running in conjunction with MotoGP, will be broadcast a week later; CBS Sportswill air coverage from Austin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, April 19, with replays at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 25.

Round two from Road Atlanta in Georgia will also air with a one-week delay at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 26, with a replay at 2 a.m. Sunday, April 27.

Although this weekend’s MotoAmerica races at the Circuit of The Americas won’t be streamed live, the issues preventing that from happening are being worked out, according to MotoAmerica CFO Richard Varner.

“We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding live streaming,” Varner said. “At this point I can say that we’ve made the investment, we’ve developed the capability to do the live streaming, and now we’re negotiating to get our product up on the Internet for our fans.”
