AMA Pro 2015 Flat Track thread

No solid schedule yet. Both Springfields will be on 2015. But hey, they're finally fixing that stupid Pro-Expert naming structure.

Name change is meh. It is less confusing. OK DMG, you've gotten your one headscratcher out of the way for the off season, now go find some money to make it worthwhile for the racers and teams.

I think flat track fans need to be very concerned now that DMG doesn't have road racing to improve.

Saw an article that reported that Barry Boone (inmate Kentucky I think) won't be returning as announcer for Flat Track. Shame, I enjoyed his commentary.

Saw that too. And had the same thought. Hopefully they don't get She-heen

I shudder at the implication.

shame about Barry, having him commentate was about the only thing that DMG did right! sheeeheeen, yikes. I think I'd watch it without the sound if that's the case.
big news about the classes name change, about the same as when a manufacturer announces bold new graphics!

Sad to see Kentucky move on but I'm sure its a good move for him.

Scottie Deubler has done a great job with the "play-by-play" and I hope he will continue.

I agree with what Harvey Mushman said. DMG with time on their hands to focus on flat track is a recipe for disaster.

Shame about Barry too, he always did a wonderful job announcing at the races and trying to educate and entertain the fans. I wish him success in whatever he decides to devote his time and talent to.

Looking forward to the Yamaha flat trackers. That FZ-07 motor should be very competitive.

and I wonder how the rules will change if they can't get the new Harley motor to perform.
