The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) sanctioned MotoAmerica Superbike Championship is the premiere superbike racing series in the United States
The AMA Road Racing Championship was created in 1976 to provide a playing field for professional racing teams and a means for motorcycle manufacturers to showcase their performance with production based models.
The series was organized by the AMA until 2008.
From 2009 to 2014, the Daytona Motorsports Group was the organizer under supervision of the AMA. The AMA was not pleased with participation in the international events and stripped road racing from the DMG organization. The AMA then awarded it to a new organization led by Wayne Rainey, KRAVE, with assistance from Dorna, which renamed it the MotoAmerica Road Racing Series beginning in 2015.
Current MotoAmerica classes are aligned with the FIM, similar to the Spanish CEV championship, and their class names will be aligned with the FIM.
