Extra attractions during the 2018 MotoAmerica weekend at Sonoma Raceway included a pre-1982 Superbike display and race put on by CSRA (Classic Superbike Racing Association), a new organization based in California. The Sonoma event was one of several MotoAmerica weekends that have included a Vintage component in recent years, and it was the best organized combination of displaying the bikes and running a race on the track. Dale Quarterley won on his 1025cc 1982 GPz1100 Kawasaki.
