AMA hires new director of racing

Former dirt track racer Joe Bromley gets the nod

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Jan. 07, 2009
The American Motorcyclist Association has hired Joe Bromley as its new director of racing.

Bromley, who was elected from the Northeast Region one year ago to the AMA Board of Directors, resigned his seat on the Board Jan. 5 in order to accept the position. As director of racing, Bromley will oversee the day-to-day operations of the AMAs amateur racing properties.

Bromley was president of AMA District six for 12 years and also served as president of the Road Winders Motorcycle Club, which was founded in 1953 and ran one of the first motocross events in the Northeast. He also remains an active racer and recreational road and off-road rider. He competes in both off-road and dirt track events and has won 21 amateur AMA National Dirt Track Championships in his amateur career.

Leaving the Board and its responsibilities was not an easy decision to make, but I believe that the AMA is on the right track, has its priorities in order and that I have something to contribute to the day-to-day management of the Association, says Bromley. I am very proud of the fact that during the course of my relatively short tenure on the Board, we have made a renewed commitment to amateur racing, which is something that is near and dear to me. The path has been set and I am excited about the opportunity to implement the strategic direction that I helped craft.
