I get the impression that Daytona will happen whether or not AMA Pro Racing participate or not, as a one off stand-alone event. So that leaves four 2 day events spread over 6 months or so...

I'm pretty sure there are US club racing organisations that achieve more diversity of venue and a [much] fuller schedule than that!

I imagine anybody who races in the "series" this year is an enabler, possibly keeping the shambling hulk of US sanctioned Pro Road Racing limping on for another season, to the further detriment of the sport in the US and all associated with it, rather than giving it the quick mercy killing it has earned...

I also wonder if the AMA have a contract that requires some floor level of credible championship to exist before they can legally pull the plug...
