AMA racing

As if AMA racing was not already in a tough situation now the Michael Jordan racing team is also leaving and with it 3 rides!

in 09 you could watch the races on US TV at regular ours. In 2010-12 they went to crazy hours like 11pm on Sundays. This year I haven't seen one race.

It is too bad that a once very competitive series go from bad to worse.

I wish success on to the Jordan team as they continue their racing in the international arena!

The AMA/DMG program has stunk from the beginning and has only gotten worse.

Time for WERA and CCS to join together and put a true National Championship Series in place, with all the club races feeding into it, sell the package to TV, and get ALL the manufacturers back in with a realistic program (Honda and Kawasaki pulled out after DMG took over, and the Europeans have not participated in years).

Let's face it...DMG just screwed the pooch. Roger Edmondson's revenge for the AMA booting him years ago. Thanks Roger.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Sounds a bit like our Australian Superbikes, what a mess. We get to see the Aus SBK races delayed by a week or so now, but at any possible time, no set schedule.
Funny thing about AMA, last year you could watch all the races here in Aus on Foxtel.
We still see all the Nascar Races and Qualifying live, every race. WTF.

Ha! NASCAR gets TV ratings, motorcycle racing does not!

Content does not matter, but ratings do!
There is less money being thrown around these days than there was 5, 10, 15 years ago, thus advertisers really streamlined where to put their money. Only the best rated programs get advertising money.

Simple as that.

And the fact that DMG is doing a lousy job with the AMA.
