MotorcycleUSA.com Interview With MotoAmerica Communications Manager Paul Carruthers

Disillusioned fans of American road racing got a silver lining back in September 2014, when the AMA and FIM announced sanctioning for a new series, MotoAmerica, in 2015.

The AMA paired with KRAVE Group LLC to acquire sanctioning, operational, promotional and commercial rights for professional road racing in America from Daytona Motorsports Group. The FIM is involved as well, giving the new series full North American sanctioning, opening the possibility of including stops in Canada and Mexico should the series choose to expand in this direction. KRAVE Group LLC, headed by three-time MotoGP champion Wayne Rainey, owns the commercial rights to MotoAmerica and is in charge of putting the series together.

The AMA, FIM, KRAVE trifecta immediately set to work building the new series, from developing new rules, classes and calendar to securing a TV deal and sponsors. In the months following the announcement, many of these issues have been settled, a remarkable achievement and testament to the tireless work of everyone involved in getting the series off the ground.
