Has anyone seen the 2009 AMA Superbike Schedule? It's been seriously shuffled from what it's been the last few years. For instance Barber was right after Daytona near the last of April and now it's in May? Mid-Ohio's been moved, too. It's almost as if the promoters/track owners are leaving room in their schedules for the "alternative" series! I still hope it doesn't come to that!

2009 AMA Pro Road Racing Series Schedule:

March 4-6 Daytona International Speedway

March 20-22 Auto Club Speedway

April 3-5 Road Atlanta

May 1-3 Barber Motorsports Park

May 15-17 Infineon Raceway

May 29-31 Miller Motorsports Park

June 5-7 Road America

July 3-5 Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

July 17-19 Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

July 31-August 2 Heartland park-Topeka*

August 14-16 Virginia International Raceway

September 4-6 New Jersey Motorsports Park*

*Pending Rider Safety Committee evaluation

Schedule is subject to change.

Yeah, the schedule has been moved around a bit. DMG announced they wanted to help the privateers a bit by removing some of the travel coast to coast. That's why they start in Daytona, go to California, then back to Atlanta. At least the next round is real close @ Barber. Then back to California, Utah, Wisconsin, and back to California!

I understand trying to tightening the gap between Daytona and Barber, it only makes sense. I also understand not wanting Road Atlanta in Atlanta's hottest part of the year.

What I don't understand is wrapping the season up almost 2 months before WSB and MotoGP.

This is just going to piss me off again if I think about it too much...
