The new three-event GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout Presented by Yamaha is gaining steam as Dynojet Research has stepped up to provide sponsorship for the Pro Sportbike class. Dynojet will also have its popular dyno performance truck on-site for race support.
Devised to fill an 11-week gap in professional road racing between mid-March and late May, the Superbike Shootout was inspired by the successful British Superbike Championship series. Both feature top professional stars and up-and-coming amateurs sharing the track in separate races at each venue.
The three-race series kicks off this coming weekend, April 26-27, with the Yamaha SoCal Nationals to be held in conjunction with Fastrack Riders and WERA at Auto Club Speedway, in Fontana, California. Two professional races–Dynojet Pro Sportbike and Pro Superbike–will run along with a full schedule of WERA semi-pro and amateur races.
After its inaugural race weekend, the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout Presented by Yamaha moves north to Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California for the Pacific Nationals hosted by AFM on May 3-4, then concludes with the Mountain Nationals at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah hosted by UtahSBA on May 24-25.
