AMA Considering Special Events To Celebrate 25th Anniversary Of Superbike Class

AMA officials are considering special ceremonies to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Superbike class, including a possible reunion of former AMA Superbike Champions.

At Road America, track officials are planning to host a trackside party on Saturday night, complete with a huge birthday cake.

The Superbike class started as Superbike Production and was first proposed by racer Steve McLaughlin, who modelled the class after the AFM Superstreet class. The original proposal was ghostwritten by John Ulrich and was submitted to the AMA under the names of McLaughlin and fellow racer Hurley Wilvert.
