“We recently finished our second season of MotoAmerica and we’re looking forward to the Night of Champions,” said three-time 500cc World Champion and MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Last year we had a great time celebrating the championships with the riders, our teams, sponsors and fans and we’re looking forward to an even better time this year. Thanks to the AIMExpo for having us back again. I’m sure it’s going to be a wonderful night and the perfect end to a great season of racing.”
The Night of Champions will feature not only the five champions – Cameron Beaubier (Superbike), Josh Herrin (Bazzaz Superstock 1000), Garrett Gerloff (Supersport), Bryce Prince (Superstock 600) and Brandon Paasch (KTM RC Cup) – but also the top three finishers in each class and the teams that led those champions to their respective titles.
