I like what I am reading...

A group led by three-time 500cc World Champion Wayne Rainey will lead U.S. road racing into the future with what will be known as MotoAmerica - an AMA and FIM-sanctioned series that will be up and running for the 2015 season. The series will replace the existing Daytona Motorsports Group (DMG)-run AMA Pro Road Racing Series with the Ohio-based AMA re-acquiring the sanctioning, promotional and commercial rights from DMG, which had purchased the rights to the series from the AMA in 2008. MotoAmerica will be promoted and managed by the KRAVE Group LLC, the group that is spearheaded by Rainey.
The group is also known to have the backing of Dorna, the rights holders to the MotoGP World Championship. Dorna’s CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta has stated in interviews that he was hopeful of Rainey putting together a U.S.-based series that would help American road racers reach the top level of the sport they used to dominate.
The KRAVE Group is a Costa Mesa, California-based organization that includes Rainey, the three-time 500cc World Champion (1990, 1991 and 1992) and two-time AMA Superbike Champion (1983, 1987); Chuck Aksland, a former racer and 20-year manager of Team Roberts who most recently served as vice president of Motor Sport Operations at Circuit of The Americas; Terry Karges, a former motorsports marketing executive and team owner who spent 17-years at Roush Performance before being named executive director of the Petersen Museum; and Richard Varner, a motorcycle manufacturer, energy sector entrepreneur, philanthropist and businessman.

So, MotoAmerica will be:

A feeder series to MotoGP working in conjunction with FIM int'l rules.
A series led by an ex racer and cool guy
A series with an investor who has managed Team Roberts, and knows the challenges and expectations of a sponsor and race team owner.
A series with the ex-VP of COTA, who lives in Austin, TX, meaning a COTA race will surely be on the schedule.
A series with a museum director and Roush executive to be sure there is class and panache to keep things, well, classy and historic.
A series with a financier who started his own motorcycle company to manufacture the kind of street trackers he'd always dreamed about... http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/bl...r-streetmaster

These guy have heart and passion. This is gonna be real good for the sport.

Hey Kraze Kris, now that the investment group is Krave with a K, are you gonna get preferential treatment next year, LOL? I'll defiitely make COTA to see you and the CMRA racers get it on in AMA, oops, MotoAmerica.

I also like how the name can be used as the series spreads throughout the "Americas".

Well, maybe better news then in the recent past.

Still don't think the AMA running the promotion of the sport is of any help. They were NOT doing a bang up job before DMG took control.

I hope the new fellas look at the BSK Series for some guidelines and promotional programs. Mr. Higgs has done a great job over there.

Hopefully not a non-profit program either. It will be a glorious day when a loved club here will change those business practices.

What did you expect from a group that races around in a circle with a cement wall around the entire course. Those morons don't know how to road race.
