Mission King Of The Baggers

KOTB - Expanded to Eight Race Weekends for 2024

MotoAmerica has released what it describes as a "tentative" 2024 eight-class MotoAmerica Championship schedule, including 20 Superbike races held over nine rounds and two additional Mission King Of The Baggers races - the Daytona 200 and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course - expanding the series to eight race weekends for 2024.

MotoAmerica will again begin its season with its Supersport class competing in the non-points-paying Daytona 200, with the Mission King Of The Baggers Championship, Twins Cup and Mission Super Hooligan National Championship kicking off their seasons with the start of those three championships.

Rispoli, who was signed to a one-year contract with the factory team, has a long history of racing Harley-Davidson motorcycles dating back to racing an XR750 as a teenager, and earning the nickname "Hogspoli" after winning the AFT Production Twins championship on a Latus Motors Racing Harley-Davidson XG750R in 2020. He also won back-to-back AMA Pro Racing Supersport championships in 2011-2012.
