Last year the Twins Cup Series consisted of nine races with the Stock 1000 class lining up eight times. For 2019, both will get the opportunity to compete in 11 races.
“We were pleased with the two new classes last year,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Twins Cup and Stock 1000 were well represented and both classes were growing at each of the races in 2018. We are looking forward to competitive racing in each class and we are happy that we can give these guys more track time and more opportunities to race in the coming season.”
