American road racing back on TV!

Good news.. American roadracing series MotoAmerica is going to have national tv coverage. On a channel that you might actually get. CBS sports.
Aug 7-9 is gonna be a crazy weekend. Racing at Indy with Motogp. Planning on watching in person again.

Good news for American road racing fans, as MotoAmerica has announced its TV and online streaming agreement for the 2015 season and onward.
The multi-year agreement sees all MotoAmerica races being televised on the CBS Sports Network, during the weekend afternoons and in primetime.
Event highlights, features, and other content will be featured on Torque TV, which will serve as a central online destination for American motorcycle racing enthusiasts.
“Having television and online coverage of our MotoAmerica series is key,” said three-time 500cc World Champion and MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey.
“It’s important to our fans, our teams, our racers, and the entire industry. We’re happy to report that we’ve been able to finalize these arrangements, ensuring fans around the country will be able to watch and enjoy the on- and off-track action our series will provide.”
The announcement of a television deal and online package for MotoAmerica is a huge win for the fledgling series, as with out TV coverage sponsorship dollars would dry up in the MotoAmerica paddock, as was seen during DMG’s tenure.
Having a strong mix of TV and online content should help expose motorcycle racing to non-enthusiasts, as well as two-wheel fanatics — helping grow the sport, and keep those already in it, engaged with American road racing’s happenings.
The 2015 Provisional MotoAmerica Series Calendar is as follows:
April 10-12 – Circuit of the Americas – Austin, Texas
April 17-19 – Road Atlanta – Braselton, Georgia
May 15-17 – Virginia International Raceway – Alton, Virginia
May 29-31 – Road America – Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin
June 12-14 – Barber Motorsports Park – Birmingham, Alabama
July 17-19 – Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca – Monterey, California
August 7-9 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway – Indianapolis, Indiana
Sept. 11-13 – New Jersey Motorsports Park – Millville, New Jersey

I am so upset that the series is no longer coming to Mid-Ohio, I have been going for the last like 12 years and now its just over. Not to mention that there is no Daytona 200!!!!!!!
