MotoAmerica has announced it will reschedule the 2020 Road Atlanta and Indianapolis rounds of the 2020 season due to the ongoing issues surrounding the Coronavirus.

The Road Atlanta Round will be moved from April 17-19 to July 31-August 2 and will now be the fifth round of the series instead of the second.

We’ll have to wait until October 9 to see racing action back at Indianapolis.

“We are all in this together as everyone in the world is affected in some way by COVID-19,” MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey said. “There are a lot of people who are struggling right now on so many levels. Even though racing motorcycles doesn’t rank highly in the list of problems going on in our world, our teams and our racetracks rely on racing because it’s their livelihood. With that being said, racing right now just isn’t possible. However, we’ve been working with the good people at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta to find an alternative date and we’re happy that with their help we’ve been able to obtain the July 31-August 2 weekend. We really appreciate them working with us because this is obviously a very difficult time for them as well.”

As for the Indy round, that’s been moved to October 9-11.

“We understand Indy’s position on this and we’re happy to make the move to the October 9-11,” Rainey said. “As our fans, racers, teams and sponsors understand, things are changing on a daily basis and we are working diligently to have a 10-round 2020 MotoAmerica Series.”

As it stands now, the Superbikes at the Brickyard event will be round nine of the 10-round series.
