Hot on the heels of the recent announcement that the King of the Baggers will be a five-race championship as part of the 2021 MotoAmerica Series comes word that the new class will be televised on FOX Sports beginning with the series opener at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on May 2.
While the schedule is subject to change, the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta opener will air on FOX Sports 1 either live at 12:30 p.m. (Eastern) or slightly delayed at 1 p.m. (Eastern) as a lead into NASCAR’s RaceDay.
The June 13 round at Road America will feature same-day delayed coverage at 5 p.m. (Eastern) on FS2. The WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca round, scheduled for July 11, will be televised live at 2 p.m. (Eastern) with same-day delay coverage of the fourth round at Pittsburgh International Race Complex scheduled for 2:30 (Eastern) on FS1. The Pitt Race coverage of the King of the Baggers will lead viewers directly into live coverage of the MotoAmerica Superbike race.
The King of the Baggers Series will conclude on September 19 at Barber Motorsports Park with live coverage on FS1 at 11 a.m. (Eastern).
“It’s great news that our television partner FOX Sports is going to air our new King of the Baggers series,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “FOX Sports was fully aware of the excitement that the debut of the class brought to our Laguna Seca round last year and they, like us, are looking forward to bringing the series to our fans at five different events in 2021.”
