It's great to see this in the local (Sacto anyway) news:

Fox40 News Cameron & Ezra Beaubier interview

Well the marketing is on the rise, for sure. I'm assuming "record" means since the inception of the MotoAmerica brand. Good on them for the attendance improvement.

Thank you for this link.

Ultimately, the goal of MotoAmerica is to bring American racers back to the world level like World Superbike and motoGP.

Agree the headline is misleading hype but its still good news that ticket sales are well ahead of last year.

It is a good sign. We need ticket sales to fans to make the sport healthy and provide opportunities to racers.

Great to hear this. Happy for MA and SONOMA Racewy.

Be there Sunday. Wish I could commit more time, but making a living takes precedence. I work 6 days a week

I will be wearing a day glo yellow barf “slow your roll” shirt.
If ya see me flip me off and then say hello.

Looking forward to seeing some friends, watching some epic racing and having a day with none of the stress that life brings.

The BMW got a new fuel map for Sonoma and new exhaust, bummer it didn’t arrive until tech opened at four. Luckily we got it swapped and passed tech right as they closed at five. Running the bike over to tech was, um, exhilarating

Steve Weir kicks some serious ass with data and setup and is helping us put it on the podium this weekend in stock 1000.

Thanks B it was a blur, fortunately there may be more opportunities for me to experience this in the coming rounds and seasons. Even if I’m not racing, being part of the show is great fun. Dialing in the the bike and seeing positive results is addicting

Most excellent. Personally, I would vote that you get another + following your Contributor status because your avatar is sick. Stay safe.
