The doubleheader event at Road Atlanta will feature AMA Superbike championship points races on both Saturday and Sunday.

In addition, fans will see their favorite riders including Mat Mladin, Tommy Hayden, Neil Hodgson, Ben Bostrom, Roger Lee Hayden, Josh Hayes, Georgia natives Aaron Yates and Geoff May, and many others.
"We're excited about returning to the spring, not only because of the cooler temperatures and the start of motorcycle riding season in Georgia, but now our fans don't have to wait until fall to check out the new and improved competition and excitement of AMA Pro Racing," said Geoff Lee, Road Atlanta President. "With the discounted ticket prices, and kids 12 and under getting in free, it will be a great weekend to bring the entire family to the races."
The redesigned series has new classes including American Superbike (1,000cc), Daytona SportBike (600cc with four, three, and two-cylinder engines), the newly created SuperSport (600cc for riders aged 16-21), and SunTrust MOTO-GT (600cc in GT1 and GT2 classes).
