The AMA is not running the races, DMG (Daytona Motorsports Group doing business as AMA Pro) is running the show and applying the rules. The AMA sold Pro racing to DMG 5 years ago.
The Kawasaki forks are legal because the coating comes stock on the Kaw forks from the factory.
All that said....THERE ARE TOO MANY RULES!!! If it doesn't give a rider an unfair advantage let them race!
The Daytona short track will be shown on SPEED Sunday (March 17) at 6 PM eastern, 5 PM central. Probably the last flat track race ever on that channel!
