Motorcycle Racing Returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
For the first time since 2015, MotoAmerica is scheduled to return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2020. The Championship of Indy will consist of all five MotoAmerica classes and is set to take place the same weekend of Indianapolis’ annual moto lifestyle event, Motorcycles in Meridian (August 22, 2020).
“We are thrilled to be headed back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a MotoAmerica round next year,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Being there along with MotoGP in 2015 was a great experience and our races were extremely close and exciting. Now we get the chance to go back with all of our classes in a standalone event and that’s a real privilege. It also shows just how far our series has come since our first year. Our riders who didn’t get the opportunity to race at Indy back in 2015 will be pumped to get the chance to race there. We also know that our fans will be just as excited to visit an iconic racetrack in a truly motorsports-driven city. Not too many know this, but our final deal to secure the rights to the series was finalized at the Brickyard – right there in the Pagoda, at the home of U.S. motorsports. So, it’s gratifying to be returning there to race again.”
