MotoAmerica, and its racers, teams and fans, will celebrate the exhilarating 2018 season of racing with its annual Night of Champions awards ceremony on October 11 on the world-famous Las Vegas strip. The ceremony will be held in conjunction with AIMExpo, America’s premier motorcycle show, at the Mandalay Bay.

The 2018 MotoAmerica Champions, their teams, and the riders who challenged them for those championships will be honored in an awards ceremony on Thursday, October 11, at the Mandalay Bay. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with general admission tickets available for our fans for $50.

“MotoAmerica is about to finish our fourth season of racing next weekend at the Barber Motorsports Park,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “We’ve had a great year with some really memorable races and we always look forward to honoring all our champions at our Night of Champions.”

The Night of Champions will feature not only the five champions – Cameron Beaubier (Motul Superbike), JD Beach (Supersport), Alex Dumas (Liqui Moly Junior Cup), Andrew Lee (Stock 1000) and the still to be named Twins Cup Champion – but also the top three finishers in each class and the teams that led those champions to their respective titles.

The event is semi-formal and will get rolling with cocktails at 7 p.m. followed by the award presentation at 8 p.m.
