Much to the surprise of no one, the To Be Determined (TBD) round of the GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing Series that was on the schedule as round two of the series – after Daytona and before Road America, May 31-June 2 - has been taken off the schedule. Thus Road America will host the second round of the series – the Subway SuperBike Doubleheader.
"Although the TBD event previously scheduled as round two has been removed from the schedule, we are looking forward with great excitement to the Subway SuperBike Doubleheader at Road America," said Michael Gentry, COO of AMA Pro Racing, in a press release. "The great staff at Road America have been working tirelessly to create the world-class fan experience that their events are known for, and we are eager to arrive in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, to contest the next round of the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing championship on the weekend of May 31-June 2."
In addition to the racing, a number of other activities aimed at providing fans with additional excitement have already been added to the event schedule. Stunt rider Jason Britton will be on hand with Team No Limit; and Road America has added a 'Salute to Cycles' on-track riding experience.
The Salute to Cycles provides participants with the rare opportunity to ride on the 4.05-mile natural road course and develop a true appreciation for the undulating. As always, pre-race ceremonies will include a fan walk, which allows fans out onto the grid to see the race-prep motorcycles and get rider autographs.
Other fan activities in and around the facility will include public karting and a Supermoto exhibition race at the Blain's Farm & Fleet Motorplex, as well as Dairyland Classic flat track races on Friday night in nearby Plymouth, Wisconsin.
Tickets for the Subway SuperBike Doubleheader at Road America start at $20. For more information, visit http://roadamerica.com/Races/RaceInformation.asp?id=240.
