|Rob Dingman, President, American Motorcyclist Association
Several positive and significant changes are underway at the AMA. Since Rob Dingman has become the President of the organization a lot has happened, with not only the AMA, but with motorcycling as a whole in the U.S. While things look to be getting better because of the decisions the AMA is making, there are still a lot of questions to be answered. Rob joins us to talk about what the future of amateur racing is here in the states and also cover the professional side of it after the purchase of AMA Pro Racing by the DMG. We also will discuss how the AMA will address the issues of sound/noise, and OHV access in 2009 and beyond.
