ELKHART LAKE, Wis., – May 31, 2022 – Fast racetracks breed close races. And there are none faster on the MotoAmerica schedule than Road America. Thus, there is nowhere like the iconic racetrack in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, where the difference between happiness and heartbreak is minute.
The average margin of victory in the MotoAmerica Superbike races held at Road America since 2015 is 2.49 seconds. And that includes Josh Hayes’ “runaway” win over Cameron Beaubier in race two in 2015 by 4.586 seconds.
The closest Superbike race was .002 of a second when Cameron Beaubier beat Josh Herrin in race one in 2018. The next day he beat him again by .195 of a second.
Here’s betting all of those classes feature close finishes again as the MotoAmerica Superbike & Vintage MotoFest Weekend returns June 3-5 .
For 2022, fans can enjoy qualifying on Friday and all-day racing Saturday and Sunday with eight road racing classes. Motorcycle classes include Medallia Superbikes, Supersport, Yuasa Stock 1000 , Twins Cup, SuperbikeTrackGear.com Junior Cup, Mission King of the Baggers, and Royal Enfield Women’s Build.Train.Race. Plus the Mini Cup by Motul. Meet the riders in the open race paddock!

Widely regarded as the premier Wisconsin ride-in motorcycle show and party featuring an eclectic mix of Euro, Japanese and American vintage café racers, choppers, sport bikes, racers, supermotos, scooters, and sidecars.
