Legendary Motorcycle Brand To Support Three-Round Mission King Of The Baggers Series
MotoAmerica, North America’s premier motorcycle road racing series, is excited to announce that the Harley-Davidson Motor Company has come on board as an official partner of the 2021 MotoAmerica Series and its Mission King Of The Baggers Series.
Arguably the most iconic motorcycle brand in the world, Harley-Davidson was founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where its headquarters remains today. Racing has been in Harley’s blood since the beginning, so it’s a natural that the Motor Company would support the new MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Series.
In addition to its partnership with MotoAmerica, Harley-Davidson is also fielding a factory team in the series with Kyle Wyman set to debut the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide this weekend at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
“Having an iconic brand like Harley-Davidson in the MotoAmerica Series is fantastic,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Having them field a full factory team for our Mission King Of The Baggers Series is a huge bonus. We are really looking forward to getting the season started this weekend at Road Atlanta and the Mission King Of The Baggers race is going to be a fan favorite.”
“We’re excited to sponsor and compete in the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers series this season with a motorcycle developed by the same Harley-Davidson engineers who create our touring motorcycles and Screamin’ Eagle parts and accessories like the Milwaukee-Eight 131 performance crate engine,” said Theo Keetell, VP Marketing. “And we look forward to the opportunity to showcase new Harley-Davidson models, including the Pan America 1250 adventure touring motorcycle at select MotoAmerica races.”
The Mission King Of The Baggers opener is set for this weekend at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Round two will take place at Road America (June 11-13) in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, with the finale set for WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (July 9-11) in Monterey, California.
