If the guy is the CEO he has the ability to control the business. He makes the final call. Regardless, he is still the Manager and his management skills were not up to the job in this case. I can't say I know the guy but I have talk by phone to him on several times. He is a super nice guy in my opinion, but I believe the biggest problem with AMA racing is that they are trying to cater to the factories too much. Mostly because the factories like to race what they sell. Fact is, this is a sport and we the fans should seperate the racing from street rides. Allowing just three classes. 600 superstock, 600 fx and superbike. That allows privateers to race competitively in the 600 superstock race and the national pros to race FX & SB.
