Here’s When to Watch the 2021 King of the Baggers Races on Fox Sports

If you enjoyed a small pack of Harley-Davidsons being shamed by two Indian Challengers, there are five more chances in 2021 to experience that again.

Last year, when the single bagger race took place at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (it was the first time baggers chased each other on the famous track), people liked the idea so much that they tuned in by the millions. Because no such thing goes unnoticed, the organizers of the race, MotoAmerica, will try to do it again, five times this year.

In May, the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta will host the first of the five races. It will be followed throughout the year by Road America, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, and Pittsburgh International Race Complex, and with everything coming to an end in September at Barber Motorsports Park. All races will be held in conjunction with the 2021 MotoAmerica HONOS Superbike Series.

The announcement was made earlier this week, and now MotoAmerica comes back to detail who will broadcast the speed battles and when. According to the organizer, the series will be televised on Fox Sports, and below this text are all the details you need to catch the events live.

“It’s great news that our television partner FOX Sports is going to air our new King of the Baggers series,” said in a statement MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Fox Sports was fully aware of the excitement that the debut of the class brought to our Laguna Seca round last year and they, like us, are looking forward to bringing the series to our fans at five different events in 2021.”

For now, there is just one man who can brag of being King of the Baggers. It’s Tyler O’Hara, who last year rode an S&S Indian Challenger to the win. A second Indian bike, handled by Frankie Garcia, finished third.
