The new television package will enable a much larger reach for MotoAmerica than it’s had in previous years.

The MotoAmerica FS2 package includes both Saturday and Sunday programming and will feature each of the 10 rounds from the series, and there will be 90-minute re-airs within seven days of each event on FS2 with a total of 45 hours of MotoAmerica action scheduled for the 2019 season.

“We’re very pleased to have FS2 as the home of MotoAmerica Superbike racing,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “This is a big step forward for us as a series as nearly 57 million households will now have the opportunity to see what competitive, exciting racing we have in the MotoAmerica Superbike Series. We know that FS2 will do a great job of bringing our racing into the homes of our existing fans and it will also put our series in front of a lot of new fans as well.”

“Adding the MotoAmerica Superbike Series to FS2 continues a long history of exciting motorsports action available on the FOX Sports family of networks,” said Josh Oakley, FOX Sports VP Acquisitions & Programming. “FS2 is a destination for motorsports fans, and MotoAmerica delivers on the expectations of our viewers.”
