DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (November 19, 2008) – Following the announcement of its new road racing class structure last month, AMA Pro Racing confirmed today that it is now accepting applications for the approval of all key parts and components for the 2009 Eligible Equipment List in each of the four major divisions of AMA Pro Road Racing.
Aftermarket parts and equipment in up to 12 different primary categories are eligible for submission in each of AMA Pro Racing’s road racing championships which includes American Superbike, Daytona SportBike, SuperSport and MOTO-GT. Applications for air filters, bodywork, controls, crash protection, drive systems, electronics, exhaust, frame and suspension components are being accepted in all four divisions. Brake system parts are available for submission in all but the SuperSport division, specific engine components are being accepted in American Superbike and Daytona SportBike and wheels are a category in American Superbike. A complete list of the parts and equipment eligible for submission within each category, in addition to the required applications and guidelines, are now available at http://www.amaproracing.com/prorace/forms.asp.
“After the announcement of the class structure in the new AMA Pro Road Racing Series, the process of approving parts and equipment for each division is the next important piece of business that needs to be completed in order to go racing next year,” said AMA Pro Racing President Roger Edmondson. “The opportunity now exists for the top aftermarket parts and equipment manufacturers and suppliers in the motorcycle industry to become part of the AMA Pro Road Racing Series and we welcome and encourage all of them to join us.”
All manufacturers and suppliers that have parts and components approved for the Eligible Equipment Lists are required to post cash Contingency Awards for those products. For a one-time registration fee of $500, manufacturers and suppliers can post as many Contingency Awards as they would like. Each product in each separate category within the four AMA Pro Road Racing championships will have its own Contingency Awards postings.
