The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced it’s removing itself from the racing series promotions business and has started seeking series promoters for its professional and amateur racing disciplines except the AMA Supercross, an AMA press release stated.
Rob Dingman, AMA’s president and CEO, said the organization lacks the resources and infrastructure to effectively promote each of its series as well as govern the sport, and this decision is to help clarify the AMA’s roles as a business.
“Unfortunately the AMA’s role has become blurred, and this lack of clarity has led to an erosion of confidence in the organization,” said Dingman. “The primary objectives of this new initiative are to improve AMA Championship Racing overall and realign the company, so it can be successful in its historic mission of serving the needs of motorcyclists by pursuing, promoting and protecting the future of motorcycling.”
