Indian Motorcycle To Defend Its King Of The Baggers Title In Expanded 2023 Championship
IRVINE, CA (May 2, 2023) – MotoAmerica, North America’s premier motorcycle road racing series, is proud to announce that Indian Motorcycle, “America’s First Motorcycle Company,” is again an official partner of the Mission King Of The Baggers series in the 2023 MotoAmerica Championship.
Indian Motorcycle is defending its 2022 Mission King Of The Baggers Championship with Tyler O’Hara and Jeremy McWilliam spearheading the team’s efforts in the seven-round, 14-race series. O’Hara won the title last year on his Mission Foods S&S Indian Challenger.
“The Mission King Of The Baggers series and its ever-growing fanbase has been a huge success and Indian Motorcycles has been a big part of that success,” said MotoAmerica COO Chuck Aksland. “Last season saw the championship go down to the wire at the final event in New Jersey after seven races. The 2023 season, with its seven rounds and 14 races, promises to be the best yet and we’ve already seen that at the season opener at Daytona International Speedway and Road Atlanta. It’s really exciting to see how much work and passion that Indian puts into this series. It’s going to be a 14-race war and we know that Indian will be a big part of that battle. It’s going to be a lot of fun to watch.”
“Founded by racers who developed America’s first motorized bicycles, Indian Motorcycle has been racing, and winning, in a variety of forms of motorcycle racing for 122 years,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology and Service for Indian Motorcycle. “MotoAmerica’s Mission King Of The Baggers series has changed road racing, as the class has reached entirely new heights. With bikes improving, speeds increasing, and the competition at an all-time high, we couldn’t be more excited to defend our King of the Baggers crown.”
