    Moto2 staging in tents I don't think they would stoop to such conditions. I just don't see the infrastructure for the full circus at the "Lake" it would be fun to watch a heard of about 6 rambunctious Continentals trying to bang their way down the corkscrew though!

    What a shame; the entire series has become a joke. Maybe races don't sell motorcycles like they used to? Whatever happened to win on Sunday and sell on Monday?

    Yes, very sad, indeed.
    But, they are going to some of the best tracks in the country, apart from Daytona, of course.

    Given the proposed schedule, sponsors aren't likely to be lining up to get in on the action.

    I'm afraid it'll never be back to the way it was in its heyday, and may not even survive unless the mfgrs come back in full force.

    Thats not the schedule and its kind of disingenuous to present it as the actual AMA schedule. Thats just a survey of tracks from RoadracingWorld.com and RRW.com speculating on what the schedule could look like.

    The real schedule could have more dates or, just as likely, could have fewer. I'm sure AMA Pro Racing will release a lame enough schedule with some TBA dates in January or February. :rofl

    I will admit, I didn't read the article, just scrolled down to the sched. :ricky

    I was surprised to see anything resembling a schedule at all.
