I think he'll dominate on occassions but not consistantly enough to win a championship of this quality.
I hope i'm proved wrong, I rate the bloke

Nori has the machinery, and I don't think he'll have the competition that was there last year. Even Corser probably won't be on the ball with his new bike/ team methinks.

Can't wait to find out though!

Nori will take it unless he goes in one of his trips to la la land. Lots of talent in new machinery that will make competition pretty good.

You know what? Seeing this lineup is depressing. It just exemplifies what a total bucket of "fail" the AMA series has become.

Look at the talent and number of teams/ manufacturers that are up on this list!

I sure hope these NASCAR boys don't screw up AMA more than AMA has, but I FOR SURE won't hold my breath on that one

You can only hope that they'll find a way to market AMA like they have NASCAR. It shouldn't be hard though.........if people can fall in love with watching cars go in circles at 200mph, they'll themselves watching guys like Josh Herrin, the Haydens and Bostroms go to work.
