Technically, it was an ex-AMA official who was funded by NASCAR types that did this.Sadly, I think we've seen the last American MotoGP or WSBK racers we're going to see for a decade or so. The NASCAR buffoons have reduced AMA roadracing to such a pathetic joke that there no longer exists a path for young American racers to get to the big time.
They can't fix their own series. Ticket sales have declined for years and some tracks are removing grandstand seats. Someone like Live Nation needs to buy it and run it like Supercross.Technically, it was an ex-AMA official who was funded by NASCAR types that did this.
At this point, I don't think the NASCAR types have any idea how to fix it.
I thing that NASCAR's declining ticket sales is due to the lingering economic situation. The longer that goes on, the more ticket sales will slide as people find it harder and harder to justify.They can't fix their own series.

What is their rationale? That it costs them too much?some racers on facebook like only having 5 races. and i can't believe how many people think it's dumb to race on sat and sunday. i think that's awesome for the fans that come to the track.
in my opinion any of the young kids wanting to race as a career better start moving over seas. racing in the usa is a dead end and pointless.
that is EXACTLY what they use as the excuse. Jake Zemke, Tommy hayden were blasted with neg comments on their facebook page for supporting the 5 race schedule.What is their rationale? That it costs them too much?
ama pro racing says that ama and ama pro racing are not the same organizations. the loss is the ama not the pro racing. they post so much better news on facebook than websites do.Rumor has it that Danny Eslick will race for Rider's Discount aboard the Triumph Daytona 675.
And here is AMA's tax form. $1.7m loss.
