Good news for Herrin and I'm glad to see Gagne return. Or did Gagne have a two year contract?

Was really hoping Fong would get Beaubier's old seat but now fingers are crossed Fong will be back on the Suzuki. I've seen rumors that Elias is returning but maybe on a different bike.



peterhively, do you mind if I make this the MotoAmerica off-season thread?

Too late. The AMA already has a championship for the SuperHooligan series.

RSD Super Hooligan AMA National Championship
The RSD Super Hooligan AMA National Championship features street motorcycles that have been modified to compete in flat track-style racing. The series was created by former racer, custom motorcycle designer and entrepreneur Roland Sands, and 2019 marks its first year operating as an AMA-sanctioned national championship. For more information on the series, including its schedule and points standings, visit www.rolandsands.com/super-hooligans.

No, no----- that's why I specified dirt track, not flat track: Think baggers on a supercross style track without the jumps and whoops, berms and hills yes.

Superhooligan isn't very exciting.

Bagger SX would draw a big crowd...of EMTs.


Super Hooligans race on flat tracks, TT tracks, beaches, city street TT courses. They put on a good show. I agree they were a mixed bag early on but once they started setting up the bikes correctly, it got way better.

German website Speedweek is reporting that Loris Baz has been offered the MotoAmerica Superbike Ducati ride that Lorenzo Zanetti had last season. Ten Kate Yamaha has a letter of intent from a sponsor for WSBK but no final contract or budget so Baz is looking at other options.

Baz reportedly commented to the French magazine MotoJournal about the MotoAmerica rumors stating "it's not fake news, but it's not signed yet!"

Glad to see Herrin get that ride.

And double glad the baggers are back, My neighbor works with one of the teams. Has a garage full of built Harleys that snap drive belts at will.
