AMA Opens Up Post Entry for SuperSport Class

The below information is interesting. As many know, the CMRA's own Dustin Dominguez won the Fontana round of the AMA SuperSport series recently. The field was light with only seven competitors, but that should in no way diminish Dustin's acievement. A few days after the race, I talked with John Ulrich of Roadracing World Magazine and expressed my concern that the AMA wasn't doing enough to promote a class designed for the emerging pro. He agreed and went further by stating that because the AMA didn't allow for post-post entry, people who wanted to race were denied the chance. So now here we are, a week and a half after the low entry count, and AMA has made a change, and a smart one at that. One smart decision down, one million to go!

AMA Pro Racing Opens Up SuperSport Class To Post Entries, Starting With Barber Motorsports Park Round
AMA Pro SuperSport presented by Shoei Post Entry Available Beginning with Barber Motorsports Park Event

Post Entry will be available for the AMA Pro SuperSport presented by Shoei Class only beginning with the Barber Motorsports event on Thursday, April 30th.

Last minute AMA Pro SuperSport post entries will be accepted from AMA Pro Racing licensed AMA Pro SuperSport presented by Shoei riders only during Thursday's registration hours from 3:00pm to 7:00pm at each event. Once registration closes on Thursday, entries for that event are closed.

You know better.

But seriously, they are headed in the right direction, now. All they have to do is the opposite of everything they've done and they are home free.

Just food for thought. If Daytona Sportbike & Supersport are both "600 inline 4" classes, with different rider requirements, I wonder if they should let the Buell run in that class as well? I mean Buell could be running away with 2 championships this year.

With that said, baring any unforseen issues, I think big D, has a VERY good chance.

Noob question:

I've heard that with all costs associated, a race weekend in CMRA could go from 1000 to 1500.

How much would it be for this supersport class? As per the entry fees, it seems it might be pretty much the same, right? Maybe the difference is the travel involved?

Travel = example they raced Fontana, CA last week and now Road Atlanta, GA this week. Cross country travel = Big $$.

Spec fuel = no pump gas used, so more cost there as well. I think the spec fuel is $8 a gallon....I think.

Spec tires = your forced to buy the $400/set Spec tires and any tires used at the race has to be purchased at the event. So you can't even practice on your used tires. So practice set, qualifying set & race set = $1200 minimum a weekend in tires.

You can do a CMRA weekend cheaper than a $1000, not if you want to do it in style, but it can be done.

thank the AMA is trying to do something about their jacked up ways. one small step forward.

and for an idea of cost to go race....

cost to race CMRA competitively

$200 (4 races)
$600-800 1 front and 2 rear tires
$100 fuel to get there and back (depending where you go)
$75 fuel to practice/race, generator, etc. (add more for race fuel)

then you have food/drinks costs which don't really count, but you can add hotel fee if you stay at one, transponder rental fee if you don't have one, and all the maintenance that you do on the bike post race (oil changes and such)

or you can just go out and have fun and race on some old tires or take offs, and can spend less than $300 to go race.

Last year diesel alone was about $600.00 bucks just to get to Hallett. I hope the fuel prices don't go outta sight before we got next month!!
