Actually, I think the Motocross and Supercross/ArenaCross series were sold to the Coombs family, the folks who run Racer X Magazine. Those series are very well run, very profitable, and look to be going from success to success.

I cannot figure out why the AMA Road Racing series has failed so dismally over that same period of time.

If I remember correctly, there was a bit of a scandal as to how much AMA sold those respective series off for as well - I understand they basically gave those series away, much to the financial detriment of the organization.
