The AMA races are being held in conjunction with the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

Warr’s of London Harley-Davidson/Buell (Great Britain), with the support of Buell Motorcycle Company, will enter veteran Irish racer and MotoGP star Jeremy McWilliams aboard an XBRR. McWilliams raced an XBRR at the Daytona and Infineon AMA rounds earlier this season.
