COSTA MESA, Calif. – MotoAmerica and FOX Sports are pleased to announce that FOX Sports 2 will continue to carry MotoAmerica Superbike racing for the 2020 season.

One-hour shows will air live on both Saturday and Sunday from each of the 10 rounds.

Additionally, the Liqui Moly Junior Cup Series will also be shown on FS2 in 2020 with 30-minute shows for each race set to be aired on a delayed basis the week after each event.

Both the MotoAmerica Superbike and Junior Cup shows will be re-aired for a second showing via the FS2 Rewind shows.

With 20 live Superbike races, 10 re-airs of Superbike Rewind, 18 Junior Cup shows and 18 Junior Cup Rewinds, the number of MotoAmerica shows on FS2 will total 66 episodes over the course of the season.

“We’re happy to announce that we will be back with FOX Sports for the 2020 MotoAmerica Superbike Series,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Shortening the program to one hour instead of 90 minutes has allowed FS2 to slot us in for live airings instead of same-day coverage shows. Adding the Liqui Moly Junior Cup races to the FS2 programming is also great news as it not only brings a lot more exposure to our riders and teams in the Junior Cup class, but it also gives our fans more MotoAmerica racing on FOX Sports.”

“Motorcycle road racers are some of the bravest athletes on the planet,” added Frank Wilson, FOX Sports VP of Production. “MotoAmerica on FOX Sports will showcase the speed and daring of the competitors in the United States’ premier motorcycle road racing series.”
