  • France (DMG) aquires AMA Pro...

    Well... it is Bike Week and all... The Empire has decided to add a "2-wheel" division to their holdings... That includes every AMA Pro category with the exception of SuperCross and ArenaCross (still thru Live Nation).

      How long is MotoGP's contract with IMS?

      Can we squeeze a dirt oval and a motorcross track on the IMS grounds?

              They already had one - The SunTrust Moto-ST Series which is owned by Grand-AM (GARRA).

                I stand corrected... I had no idea that they had a hand in that little "Sport Twin" playground. How did that work out for them last week at Daytona...? 17 in the SST Class (down 2 bikes form last year)... 7 in GTS (down 3 from last year).... Thriving....

                But I will say that they now have control over a series with TV exposure and ample grids...

                  I think bike week at Indy would be a very smart move. I don't know what it will draw if you started putting people in the speedway but you could set up the moto-cross track near the speedway and put up temporary stands.

                    No, they don't.

                    If anyone takes the time to read the article in the link, you'll note Rob Dingman's specific apology for what the AMA did to Roger, his wife, and his family.

                    I was racing in the AMA Pro Superbike Series when the AMA did it's abominable actions. Roger and Peggy Edmondson personally, with (like the Beatles song) the help of their friends, developed the AMA Championship Cup Series from scratch in the early 80s, and then went on to the AMA to run the Pro Series. Then, the AMA attempted to destroy them for no good reason just so they (AMA) could take the racing back. No one who was around that time could figure out what in the world the AMA was trying to do or trying to prove, and obviously from what was said today, no one yet uderstands what the powers that be at that time were thinking.

                    I was privileged to know Roger and Peggy on a personal basis through those years of racing, and I know of no-one I've ever met in two or four wheeled racing who compares to the total dedication they have given to racing. I really don't care if the Frances are involved or not. Grand Am, and now Ama Pro Racing, are in the very best of hands.

                    This is not to say that there weren't people who weren't happy with Roger. But Roger is eminently fair, impartial, and puts racing and racing safety first and foremost. It just doesn't get any better than that.

                      Just as an aside, that Murphy the Bear blog posted about this in October.

                      I'm not a particular fan of Nascar involving themselves in too many facets of the sport. I"m not much of a fan of what they do, and I hope other forms stay strong enough to keep their spots.
