Ok. So, in a bicycle race, who's your money on: Ben Spies, Ben Bostrom, or Scott Russell.

the A1 rides are mostly just show up and ride, always the day of Anaheim1 SX. they keep changing routes so it'll prob be a little different next year. u can register ahead of time to get some swag and theres usually a food truck after. Cal usually goes and I heard Mark Cavendish was at this years.
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/special...n-53977956521#

theres also usually a dirt ride on Sunday. this years was postponed due to weather, so I doubt any racers showed up. Marvin Musquin and Jack Miller were at this one in 2018.

MotoAmerica brings on K&N as a series sponsor.

It's kind of strange to me considering that 2.5 years ago their oil filters were so bad that they were catching on fire, spilling oil on the track, and were banned from competition use (ban lifted as of 1/30/18).

But I guess that's in the past and doesn't matter, when someone writes you a check, you take the money and call them a sponsor.

If I was MotoAmerica, I'd be taking money from just about anyone.

In the April 2019 issue of RoadracingWorld they visit K&N and the faulty oil filters are discussed. They say they have resolved that issue.

Yes, there was a manufacturer recall on those filters made between March and September of 2016.

Still, no press release, RRW article, or sponsorship is going to convince me to use K&N filters over OEM on my race bike. And I don't think I'm alone.
