This is an AWESOME idea. I've had the same thought many times: throw out the BS micro-management rules, tell teams to bring what they want, and hit the track. Enough with losing the race because your fuel management system throttled the bike back to meet some stupid EPA butt-kiss rule.

Will it work? If they can keep it reasonably safe, HELL yes. People will flock to a race like this; live or on TV, if it's done right. Even non-motorcycle people can figure out that a "No Rules, No BS" race series on bikes will be awesome.

Can these people make it happen? I hope so, because I want to see it.

I love the idea.Being a family venue the umbrella girls should wear clothing of some type.Of course we all understand the value more naked chicks would add to the party.

I'll compromise with you: They can wear clothing; but it must be scanty and skin-tight.....

I don't do drugs, so don't take this the wrong way. But the subhead I wanted to use for this article was was: "Doing for motorcycle racing what cocaine does for a happy day ..."

Or something like that. If this guy can get a few 10s of millions for a weekend network payout, more power to him! If Hollywood artists can usher motorcycling into the big leagues, I say, go for it!

It will make a million dollar purse totally do-able, and in the process pay motorcycle racers and teams the money they deserve. I mean think about it: you hear of some guy who swings a bat or golf club getting a contract for $6M, $10M, more ... ?

This is just the spike the MC industry could use. You know something's wrong when Tiger Woods can pay a $100M divorce settlement while uber-talented riders are dying on the vine in obscurity, or living on insufficient pay.

We all know motorcycle racing takes more skill, is more exciting, death defying, everything! All it needs is proper marketing. Stanford Crane proposes to do just that.

Now, at the count of three, all together: Think positive thoughts in his direction!

Well its about time! This is great news I do believe the motorsports industry could do a lot better even with cars which I rarely watch. What happened to the "run what ya brung classes" these are the most exciting races to watch the David and Goliath race(if you will).

Once watched a FZR4 go head to head with a FZR1 at talladega great race! The four hundred won! Thats what roadracing is about for me.

The DMG fiasco left a lot of people pretty unhappy with motorcycle racing. For the first time in...many years...I didn't attend the Daytona 200 last year.

It's so simple: you can race what you can qualify on. No tech inspections, no cheating (how can you cheat when there are no rules?), no gerrymandering the rules to favor one team/manufacturer/design. The potential for innovation that could come from a series like this is reason enough in itself.
