Pretty damning letter to the AMA. Sounds like they need to get their act together.

Think it'll make a difference? Naaaah... probably not. But at least he's trying.

If someone does not race, or have a racing family member/friend, they would be a fool to cntribute money to buying these fences. If the fences are so important, then the sponsors of racers should be the ones contributing to this fund. Yeah, I read that large portions are being paid for by industry heavy weights, but the AMA should not need public donations for safety equipment.

I don't think it's a question of need... I think he's trying to get the point across that they're not doing the right thing, and trying to take away their excuse of not having the money to do it.

No, they should not, but unfortunately AMA Pro Racing is an extremely slow-moving, unresponsive organization. This is probably the only way to get their attention. If the money's there, they can not use the excuse that "we can't afford it".

The AMA does not need the money. They just got done raising their membership rates. Ulrich is doing this to tweak the AMA. Ulrich has a long-time reputation for being mad at the world and the AMA is keeping him focused right now.



I am not a member of the AMA and until they clean up their act and remember that they are supposed to represent the membership and not just the manufacturers or the sponsors I will continue to boycott membership in their club.

I would feel more comfortable writing a check to the actual track that would use it -- than to the AMA.

The 29 sections are to be transported and used at all the AMA Pro events.
