Hopefully I'm wrong (as usual).

I am happy to see the riders getting some coverage. They have got some rope, now we get to see how it works out
I'm missing something here...

DMG something positive? Five races, down from how many? De-emphasis of Superbikes for 600 "Daytona" bikes? Races shown on TV live in some cases, delay in others, but showing up, gone?

Is it sarcasm I'm missing? What is the positive here? Maybe we save money by not having races to attend?

Sorry for all the questions...

Trust me Mark I agree with you about the current state of AMA Pro Racing.
DMG has done everything wrong since they have been in control. It is a positive thing that the riders are getting coverage in the 5 events on the schedule.

Seems like DMG is getting smart. Probably out of desperation.

No shame in being the undercard at these events. It helps the riders I think, and they are all I care about.

Its good. Don't know if DMG will raise more of a fuss about Ulrich's series now that they have a West Coast date.

Hey fellas,
Can you watch the races on FanTV when you want to, or can you only tune in live? I was looking for last night's short track race, but I don't see it available for viewing. I see archived races from 2013 though, am I missing something?

Thanks,
George

I find the site a little bit confusing. I do think they will eventually have archives of the races. Or they will be posted on youtube. They have a ways to go to be as slick as MotoGP.com, but at least this is a start.

The Daytona coverage was a middling obviously very low budget start for Fanschoice. Scott Russell did a good job at the mic, the other guy not so much. Actually had to turn the sound off before the 200 was over. If I hear "The World Center of Racing" or about how great the staff at Daytona is one more time......
