Motorcycles in May, added IndyCar series at Sonoma Raceway

A special American Federation of Motorcyclists event will take place at Sonoma Raceway the weekend of May 3 and 4, featuring the return to the Valley of professional motorcycle road racing, which will be held alongside amateur and semi-pro racers.

Hosted and sanctioned by AFM, a full field of Pro Superbike and Pro Sportbike professional riders and teams is expected to compete in the event.

The weekend will include Pro Superbike and Pro Sportbike main events, as well as a full schedule of amateur races traversing Sonoma Raceway’s 2.3-mile road course.

The entry list will include a who’s-who of the country’s top motorcycle road racers, including three-time Superbike champion Josh Hayes, along with J.D. Beach, Cameron Beaubier, Garrett Gerloff and Jake Zemke.

Professional riders will run practice and qualifying sessions on Saturday, with 18-lap main events slated for Sunday afternoon. AFM groups will be on the track before, between and after the Pro Superbike and Pro Sportbike sessions and races, and the entire event is open to the public.
