A V-twin bagger motorcycle race? Yes, please
MotoAmerica has added a class of highly modified bagger motorcycles for a race at the Laguna Seca. V-twin engines, the famous Corkscrew corner and a lot of noise. All that packed in a race. Would you watch such an event?
The American professional racing series added a new class to its 2020 season according to MotoAmerica. It features modified bagger motorcycles and it’s named King of the Baggers which will take place on July 11 at the Laguna Seca race track.
The race is organized by MotoAmerica and Drag Specialties. It will be round six of the 2020 MotoAmerica Series and part of the MotoAmerica Superbike Speedfest at Monterey.
“I can’t wait to go watch the Baggers come down the Corkscrew for the first time,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “That will be a sight that I think our fans will love. I think these guys will put on a heck of a show and it will tie in nicely with all the other things we have planned for the Superbike Speedfest At Monterey. It’s going to be an awesome weekend of all things motorcycling at Laguna Seca.”
The event will show modified V-twin bagger motorcycles.
“Drag Specialties has been the leader in V-twin performance products since 1968,” said Jim Matchette, Drag Specialties National Sales Manager. “Our company’s heritage comes from supporting racing and our slogan is ‘We Support the Sport.’ We are excited to be a part of this ground-breaking event and look forward to seeing where this inaugural race takes the performance bagger market. Drag Specialties has all the premier brands that will make these bikes perform at their highest level. We look forward to seeing all of you at Laguna Seca in July.”
“In all my years of working in the motorcycle industry, I have never been to Laguna Seca,” said Brandon Holstein, Owner/Builder of The Speed Merchant. “So, I am beyond excited to be going for the first time and being a part of the first-ever Drag Specialties King of the Baggers race.”
No news yet on the riders that will race the motorcycles at Laguna Seca, but so far it seems that the target is to showcase highly modified V-twin engines and we can’t wait to see them race through the Corkscrew corner.
