In addition to “After School Next Gen Racing,” which begins on February 3 from 4 to 5 p.m. (Eastern), MAVTV will also air past MotoAmerica Superbike races every Friday night from 7 to 8 p.m. (Eastern), beginning on February 5.
“Having our SportbikeTrackGear.com Junior Cup featured on MAVTV in a block of programming built around kids is great,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “This could go a long way in introducing motorcycle road racing to a younger audience and there might even be a potential champion who starts getting interested in the sport via MAVTV. It’s also cool that MAVTV will be showcasing some of our past HONOS Superbike races in addition to their coverage of Supersport, which they started with last season.”
