About Supermoto

Supermoto originated in the U.S. in the late 70s as a made-for-TV “Superbikers” show. Supermoto is a cross-discipline event in which road racers, dirt-trackers and motocrossers compete on a unique track that combines pavement and dirt, resulting in a very competitive race track. The races feature jumps, high speeds and back-it-in sliding. Tracks can range from football stadiums to closed-course streets to parking lots and more.

USA Pro Supermoto Passes AMA Supermoto National Championship Series Torch To DRT Racing

DRT Racing to take over promotion of the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series in 2017

CORONA, Calif. (February 24, 2017) – After five seasons of promoting Supermoto racing at a National level, USA Pro Supermoto passes the torch to DRT Racing, the new promoter of the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series.

Although it was not an easy decision, both USA Pro Supermoto CEO Joe Agley and COO Matt Stewart decided that it was time to pass the torch to a new promoter with strong industry ties. DRT Racing President Alex Mock was a part of USA Pro Supermoto team as the Sponsor Relations Manager.

Mock looks forward to the challenge of his new role and looks to keep the consistency of operations to help carry on the sport’s momentum of growth.

“I want to thank the AMA, Joe Agley, Matt Stewart and their crew for the opportunity to keep the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series going in 2017,” said Mock. “I will consistently work towards exciting and innovative events for future seasons!”

Although both Agley and Stewart have stepped out of their role as the promoter, they both will continue to have a presence in Supermoto. Agley will carry on as RSR Team Owner/racer and Stewart will be on hand to help smooth the transition between promoters and to help continue the growth of Supermoto.

“It was a pleasure to help grow Supermoto in the U.S. with USA Pro Supermoto and help pave its return to an AMA National Championship,” Stewart said. “I’m now passing the torch to DRT Racing to continue the success of the sport. I will be on board this year to help the transition of the new promoter. I’d like to thank Joe Agley, my staff at USA Pro Supermoto, the Supermoto paddock and American Motorcyclist Association for all of their support over the years.”

The upcoming season boasts another year of world-renowned race venues consistent with the championship.
